Atlético Madrid couldn't pull out a victory at home against lowly Osasuna on Sunday at the Estadio Vicente Calderón in Madrid. While the madrileños dominated for most of the game, Osasuna's defense held firm and mostly forced los rojiblancos to take long-distance shots that never troubled Osasuna's keeper Fernández.
While Atlético's midfield trio of Suárez, Tiago and Gabi kept Osasuna under pressure for most of the match, they couldn't seem to get the ball up to their offensive trident in a position to make a play on goal. But I still think that will come with time: new signing, and probably center forward Falcao didn't make his debut, while Diego Forlán stayed on the bench waiting for news of his transfer (with his ear pressed to the ground I'm sure). The team lacked punch offensively, but that makes sense when both of their main goal scoring threats didn't see a minute of game time. I'm all in on the Atleti boat this season (even though I shouldn't be).
