Atlético clings to a society that has already paid off: Correa-Joao Félix

The Argentine’s assists gave the Portuguese four goals at the beginning of the season. They now have four games to reconnect.

Luis Suárez’s injury has been a hard blow to the red-and-white water line. With the Uruguayan the 9 starter is lost, they fall 19 goals and Atlético is left without the indisputable offensive reference of the team. Beyond the targets, he is the only guarantee center forward after the scared of Diego Costa and the number of vicissitudes that have turned in residual the role of Moussa Dembélé, arrived in January.

Without 9 holder at least the next four games. No 9 substitute waiting for the final OK from the medical services to return to top competition after fainting weeks ago. This is how Atlético faces the final stretch of a championship that has been caressing thanks to a brutal first lap (50 of 57 points, winter champion three days in advance) that has not had continuity in the following 10 games: six punctures and the rojiblancos leaving double points (14) in half duels.

TURN OF THE ‘SMALL’

In this scenario, it is the turn of the one who will be an attacking partner against Betis and, possibly, on the following dates against Eibar, Huesca and Athletic, the four duels that, if the deadlines are met, Suárez will be lost. A duo, formed by Ángel Correa and Joao Félix, who must come out of the scoring pothole (The Argentine has eight games without wetting, the Portuguese two goals in his last 17 LaLiga games) to lead Atlético to the title goal.

They cling to this at Atlético. They cling to it with the optimism of knowing that they gave that extra scorer at the beginning of the course, at the time when the team flew victory to victory. In fact, Argentine and Portuguese formed a successful duo in which on the 10th he attended and on the 7th he sent her to the cage.

CONNECTION AT THE BEST TIME

Up to four times they connected with those roles. Salzburg, in Champions, Granada, Osasuna and Cádiz They were the victims of a connection that coincided, written, with the best rojiblancos moments of the course. The Portuguese also gave the gift back to the Argentine in the win against Granada. A thread of optimism in a team in which they are not the only ones who must face the scoring responsibility.

And it is that there are more footballers that have demonstrated in other times that capacity to win parties. Lemar and Carrasco, for example, they have a goal if they play close to the rival area, as media such as Saúl and Koke. Not counting, of course, a Marcos Llorente placeholder image that will be low against Betis but that later will be key again while Atlético clings to its two little ‘devils’.
