Atlético de Madrid visits Recreativo, the revelation of the First Division

Atletico de Madrid is about to face the team that, without a doubt, is the revelation of the First Division this season. Recently promoted to the top flight, Recreativo de Huelva is hav1ng an outstanding season, as they’re not only far from the relegation zone, but have also been very close to the places that give the right to play in European competition since the beginning of the season. In the first half they showed what they’re worth and despite falling by a tight score of 2-1 in Vicente Calderon Stadium, the team coached by Marcelino left an excellent image on Atletico’s pitch. These two teams have faced each other in Huelva on only four occasions, two in First Division and two in Second. During the 1978/79 season, in First Division, Atletico won by a score of 0-1. In 2000/2001 and 2001/2002, both in Second Division, the results were 1-1 and 1-3, respectively. And in 2002/2003, again in First Division, Recre won by a convincing 3-0. Recreativo de Huelva has scored 5 goals in these matches, the same as Atletico de Madrid.
