MADRID (EFE) – Atlético de Madrid reaped its first defeat of the preseason on Wednesday after losing 1-0 to RB Salzburg in a duel in which Diego Pablo Simeone continued without being able to count on the players who have played international tournaments with your selections.
Given this situation, the Argentine coach started with an eleven where more experienced players such as Oblak, Hermoso or Saúl alternated with young people eager to take advantage of their opportunity on the green.
He faces an Austrian team that has already started their league and that took danger from the beginning mainly thanks to the figure of Sucic, who put Oblak to the test after Adamu caressed the goal with a header that went high.
Little by little the rojiblancos were shaking off the pressure but in the thirty-fourth minute a counterattack after theft in the midfield of the hosts was successfully completed by Adeyemi without Oblak being able to do anything.
With the rest the changes came and in that alternation the Madrid people seemed comfortable, who through Giuliano Simeone put the equalizer. However, a previous hand from Camello prevented the referee from conceding the goal.
It was the clearest opportunity for the visitors, who failed to disturb a more grounded team that could even extend the lead if Oblak had not hit again to block a shot from Bernede.
