Grbic ‘pseudo debut’ with a clean sheet

Strange at least it was the first match of Ivo Grbic with the Atlético de Madrid. Only a privileged few could see him for the first time defending the shield of the bear and the strawberry tree in the Metropolitan Wanda. And is that the friendly against him Almeria that won 4-1 was a training match that had four 30-minute halves that was played behind closed doors, it was not broadcast and the media could not attend.

In this way the Croatian knew what it was like to play in his new home. No public, no media, no pressure … He came out in the second part of the training match with the result of 1-1 on the scoreboard. His entry to the field coincided with the best minutes of the team, already with a Almeria broken after the first half of the session.

Thus he left a clean sheet against one of the leading teams in Second Division and that until recently was in First division. In fact they have re-formed a team that will fight to visit the Metropolitan Wanda officially in the league in the 21-22 season.

It seems that it will take a long time to see the only new face of the Atlético de Madrid. If all goes well, its official premiere will arrive with the first matches of Copa del Rey. Since Jan Oblak settle in the team, the only options he has given his substitutes have been the minutes of the cup competition or when he has had an injury …

A ‘pseudo debut’ and a clean sheet that Grbic he celebrated on his social networks as if it were an official match. The truth is that something like that even in a training match against him Almeria It is good news for a young goalkeeper who has just landed on the mattress set.
