Cerci failed to make it on the pitch during Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win over Elche on Saturday, the sixth time in the last eight matches in all club competitions that he's been an unused substitute.

Certainly more was expected from Cerci after he posted 13 goals and 10 assists last season for Torino, but he just hasn't found a way into the Atletico rotation this season and remains a very limited fantasy options, even in the deepest leagues.

Cerci subbed on for Antoine Griezmann in the 66th minute and picked up two yellow cards, getting sent off in two minutes into stoppage time during Atletico Madrid's 3-1 loss to Valencia on Saturday.

Cerci's second yellow card came after he thought he had scored a late consolation goal but instead was sent off for a handball. He'll now miss Atletico's match against Espanyol before being eligible to return Oct. 26 at Getafe.

Cerci scored in the 71st minute of Saturday's 2-2 draw with AC Milan.

The goal put Torino up 2-0 and it appeared like it could be enough to hand the club it's first win against AC Milan in 12 years. However, a late strike fro, Sulley Muntari and a penalty kick by Mario Balotelli left Torino with only a single point despite leading so late in the match. Cerci now has two goals in three Serie A matches this season, a nice start to the season after scoring eight times in 32 appearances last year.
