Outstanding performance from Diego Pablo Simeone's side in Atlético de Madrid's first test against CD Numancia after a 4-0 win at Burgo de Osma. Despite the fact that the match had not started in the best possible way, after a penalty committed by Savic after two minutes that was saved by Jan Oblak.
A clear example of playing as you train is the goal scored by Thomas Lemar, who opened the scoring after seven minutes with a powerful left-footed shot after an assist from Ángel Correa. It was the Argentinian and his compatriot Rodrigo de Paul who finished off the rehearsed moves proposed by Simeone after two corners crossed by Lemar to make it 0-3 at the break.
After coming back from the changing rooms, a new starting eleven proposed by Diego Pablo Simeone came out very aggressively looking to increase the score and the new red and white 9, Matheus Cunha, was in charge of it after a corner. The slate worked with 3 goals from a rehearsed play.
Mario Hermoso had to withdraw from the game in the 65th minute after feeling some discomfort in his ankle. He was replaced by home-grown player Felipe, Atlético de Madrid's third goalkeeper, who, curiously, was placed as a striker in Diego Pablo Simeone's scheme.
