The Argentine will form with Joao Félix at the top of the attack
Nor it could have come at a more inopportune moment the sanction of Marcos Llorente placeholder image for five yellows. The cycle of reprimands that he will fulfill today Luis Suarez It will remain an anecdote before the injury of the Uruguayan, but the absence of the Madrilenian leaves more to chance than ever the task of scoring in the mattress team. Simeone he will not be able to count on the two footballers who have scored more than half of the team’s goals in The league the day when they must defend the leadership more strongly than ever.
Up to 29 times the Atléticos have shouted a goal thanks to Luis Suárez and Llorente, 15 times more than what they have done with Joao Félix and Correa, the attack pair that will align Simeone in the Benito Villamarin. At a time where it is increasingly difficult to pierce the rival’s goal as shown by the fact of having scored only one goal in the last four appearances, there is no doubt that the Portuguese and the Argentine must take a step forward.
In the case of the Portuguese, from the mattress team they ask that there be continuity to the version of the player who was shown to the world before him Chelsea. To that footballer who at the beginning of the season decided matches is the one who wants to recover for the decisive moment of The league. When to finish the work done to date.
With 10 the story is different. Simeone trust him fully. He is the only player in the squad who has played every game of the season and his assists are gold for Luis Suárez or Marcos Llorente. But it is time that he also saw the goal.
With the idea that strap be in charge of finishing the offensive plays of the Athletic before him Betis, the Argentine was the protagonist in yesterday’s training. After finishing the session and with all his teammates in the locker room, the Rosario stayed on the green for more than 20 minutes rehearsing the shot on the rival goal. Simeone I attended and strap he was in charge of looking for a goal. Crossing from the right to seek the first goal both from above and below, balls from the left in the same conditions and passes from the front of the area to seek control and the shot against the opposition of a rival. All these kinds of match situations worked Simeone with a strap that adds four so many in the present league championship. You must balance the number of assists with the number of targets.
Despite that drought, the truth is that Angel Correa he arrives at a field where it is not unknown to him to savor the goal. On the last visit of the Atlético to Villamarín was in charge of opening the scoreboard. With a bit of yours and another of Morata the rojiblancos were victorious from a field where the leadership is played before the decisive part of The league.
