Reigning Spanish LaLiga champions Atlético de Madrid lost 1-0 on their visit to the Austrian Red Bull Salzburg stadium in a preseason friendly.
The home team scored the only goal of the game through young German Karim Adeyemi (minute 34), who took advantage of a loss by Saúl Ñíguez in midfield.
In the second half Giuliano Simeone, son of the rojiblanco coach, the Argentine Diego ‘Cholo’ Simeone, managed to temporarily tie the contest (59), but the referee annulled the goal by Sergio Camello’s previous hand.
The next meeting for the Madrid team, which this Wednesday played mainly with homegrown players and some members of the first team who have already finished their holidays, will be on Saturday against German Wolfsburg. AFP (HN)
