, The Portuguese decided a victory with little luster in front of the Sant Andreu
All crossings of the Copa del Rey
There was repeated history. Atletico Madrid are not brought on this occasion a triumph resounding from his visit to the Narcís Sala. The best news for Simeone was the militancy of a Gelson hell-bent on proving that you do not want to be a mere parade this season. The front red and white was the outstanding player of a team that lacked instinct killer in the second part. A circumstance that the Sant Andreu, the only one Third of this round, took advantage to reach the end of the meeting not only of much better feelings in order to give the bell in the back, but even scraped the draw in the final moments. [Narration and statistics: 0-1]
As is often the case in the releases of the sets of First in the Copa del Rey, el Cholo Simeone, absent on the bench for the penalty that even dragged from the tie against Sevilla last year, opted to give minutes to the less habitual, and, by the way, do some experiment. Juanfran, repositioned on the left wing, was for many minutes, a attacker more. And not only that. Also, one of the most claimed the attention of the foci in the first half.Diego Simeone observes the match against Sant Andreu from the stands. Alejandro GarcíaEFE
Who was more for the work, however, was a Gelson is more than ready to prove to your coach that you can have a hole in an attack in which Diego Costa and, above all, Antoine Griezmann focus is always all eyes. The former striker of Sporting of Portugal was very incisive. The first clear opportunity, in fact, was in their boots. The prize, however, will not come about until once the half hour of the meeting. He was in charge of picking up the assistance Vitolo, after an action developed from the rojiblancos, to put the 0-1 on the scoreboard.
The goal, however, is not amedrantó to a Sant Andreu that, as he had pointed out his coach, Mikel Azparren, tried to plant face. Even, hovered around the vicinity of the area of a Antonio Adam, who played his first minutes in an official meeting as atletico, but he attained not to worry really former goalkeeper of Betis and Real Madrid. The cuatribarrados even multiplied their militancy after the break, as much as Gelson, how not, to have again on your boots a clear action to issue a decision after the start of the second part.The lever of Elhadji
Atletico maintained in large part to its superiority, but I could not find solutions to put more distance on the scoreboard. A circumstance which allowed the local press a little more teeth to be, at least, a defeat by the minimum that could enable them to dream to put the fear in the body to the rojiblancos in the Wanda. Elhadji, one of the changes of the Sant Andreu, forced to Adam to be used to fund to prevent a goal that would give you up to two more times back to the premises after the ensuing corner kick.
The 0-1 final was in large part a sense of victory for a Sant Andreu that, unlike what happened five years ago, stands in the back with options of make matters much more life to an athlete who signed a first part very serious, but that faded away hopelessly after the break.
