Atlético Madrid's twenty-three match unbeaten run finished at Valencia last weekend, and now their record run of sixteen wins in a row in Europe came to a ignominious end as well after they lost 2-0 to Portugal's Académica Coimbra. Once again Simeone put out his "second team" for this match, but apart from a shot by Raúl García which was blocked by a defender, they hardly troubled the local defence in the opening minutes. With just under half an hour on the clock Wilson Eduardo got ahead of Silvio turn a Joao Dias cross wide of Asenjo, and although Koke did test Ricardo soon after the restart, Wilson got his second of the evening from the penalty spot after Pulido brought down Cissé in the area with an hour gone. Atlético are still almost certain to go through to the knock-out stage having won their first three games, but with Viktoria Plsen level with them on points, they are still not sure of finishing first in their group.
