Atlético de Madrid made short work of Astana with a landslide of 7-1 that fell short for the merit of our team. The first goal took its time to arrive but shortly later the Sports City was surprised when the Kazakhs scored, taking advantage of an error made by Atlético. That emboldened our guys, who stepped on the accelerator and managed to score four goals more before the half time.

Great match by Keidi, Juan Moreno and Rober, with Andrés starting as a midfielder and then played as a centre-back in the substitution of Lucas. There was time to see Salomón in action, who scored a trademark goal, dribbling his rival, speeding away and finishing well. The goals were widely distributed, with two goals from Juan Moreno and Rober, although one of them could have taken the ball home because there were more chances to score.
