João Félix came in to try to unbalance Atlético-Athletic's 0-0 score and was sent off after 18 minutes to jump into the field.

If a game falls to him, he will be able to reappear against Alavés. If there are two of you, you will have to wait for the big dates that They come ahead: Milan and Barça. And for those exams, only the best version of each player will be valid …
