The injuries chase the strikers of Atlético B

Dario Poveda suffered a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of his knee shortly after debuting with the first team. Same injury as Garcés and Bastón.


Atlético B strikers are facing a major obstacle in their mission to settle in the first team. And it is that the injuries are being primed with the tips of the second rojiblanco team that manage to debut with the first team, a curse that has now hit Darío Poveda.

The 22-year-old ram suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee last Saturday just as he was going through his best moment. Top scorer of Second Division B with 10 goals and a regular in the last lists of Simeone, getting to debut against Granada where he could be subject to penalty at the time of discount. In addition, teams like Zaragaza had set their sights on a growing Poveda.

A tragic news just at the time when Borja Garcés has returned to the team after having lived a similar nightmare. The Melilla striker was injured during a training in March after suffering a traumatic injury to the right knee that affected the anterior cruciate ligament and for which he had to be operated. Garcés, 20 years old, was discharged on October 16 and after picking up pace, getting to train with the first team, in Oviedo he returned to feel fully a footballer only 11 days ago after having to be off the grounds of I play eight months. On September 15, 2018 he had debuted with the first team against Eibar making the goal of the mattress draw. His 19 minutes on the grass of the Wanda Metropolitano were full revenue and the knee injury came when he was a regular in training and in several calls of the first team.

But also Sergio Camello, author of the goal of the draw against Levante on the last day of the last League in his debut with the first team, has had to be almost three months off due to an osteosynthesis of the stress injury that occurred in the fifth metatarsal of the right foot and that forced him to go through the operating room. At 18 he returned a week before Garcés to the games with Atlético B and has been recovering pace to be an important piece in the team.

A injuries that have reminded the case of Borja Bastón. The tip was the great promise of the quarry and stood out for its scoring nose, coming to debut with the first team on May 15, 2010 on the last day of the League taking advantage of a massive rotation of Quique Sánchez Flores to prepare the final of the Europe Hamburg League against Fulham. But Borja suffered a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee against Getafe in his first game at Vicente Calderón that forced him to be off seven months. He did not have the opportunity of rojiblanco again and there was always the feeling that the striker, now in Swansea, saw how a serious injury took away his great opportunity in Atlético.

The injuries of Darío Poveda, Borja Garcés and Camello affect an Atlético B with the clear objective of ascending to the Second Division. The loss of their scorer has been punishing the team, which last season finished third and was eliminated by Mirandés in the promotion playoff. Now Atlético B is second, at one point from the leader, Atlético Baleares and with a small mattress of five points on Ibiza, which is third. The loss of the goal scorer Poveda will force Nacho Fernández to look for another benchmark above to maintain the objective of fighting to ascend to the silver category.
