Atlético de Madrid
and the FC Barcelona they measured forces in the match played in the Metropolitan Wanda. This is how the men of Diego Pablo Simeone.
The Slovenian goalkeeper was providential in the first half, with a great save from a shot from Messi, near the break. And in the second part, to two very clear auctions of Lenglet, in set pieces. And one more of Griezmann.
KIERAN TRIPPIER. Dared
It was well associated with Llorente on the right wing. Better in the offensive, as always, he prevailed Pedri in the first part. Sometimes it seemed more like an end than a side. Very well.
STEFAN SAVIC. Imperial
Attentive to the central area of the area, where it usually appears Messi from second line. He arrived with discomfort and answered.
Quick to cross when needed, in a particularly sensitive game due to the quality of the Catalans.
MARIO HERMOSO. Applied
Very attentive to the brand, in one of the points that could unbalance the balance with Dembelè. He won several individual duels by placement. With yellow from very early, he knew how to manage the delicate situation very well.
MARCOS LLORENTE. Powerful
Overflowing and powerful in the physical. He overflowed with power, he was a danger in the first half. His great shot to the crossbar deserved to finish in goal.
SAÚL ÑÍGUEZ. Involved
Very concentrated and hard-working. He had a great chance with a shot from outside the area that brought out the best of Ter Stegen.
On the line that came. The conductor who needed the Athletic. Great work in the creation center, the defensive and the offensive.
YANNICK CARRASCO. Sublime
Omnipresent in the first half, and prominent in the second. No one would say it came from an injury. It multiplied to help defend Beautiful. And it was very fine to take advantage of with a subtle touch, the error of Ter Stegen which ended in the first goal. Sharp in attack, tremendous in effort.
JOAO FÉLIX. Elegant
Less decisive than in other games, but very successful when the ball fell on his feet. It always felt like something might come up.
ANGEL CORREA. Assistant
Worker and successful in the deep pass that gave the goal of Carrasco. In this campaign he is less close to the direct goal but he is the team's top assistant.
DIEGO COSTA. Back
The one from Lagarto came out to give the team depth and hold balls, run into space.
He jumped onto the grass to reinforce the core game, he is still uncoupled. Patience.
THOMAS LEMAR. Unnoticed
No presence in the game.
He came out to reinforce the defensive zone in the final part.
