New normal, same Atlético de Simeone

Genialoid. Little has changed for Atlético de Simeone after three months without competition. The confinement has not changed his approaches to the mattress team coach, who designed a game like those before the break due to the coronavirus pandemic. The only thing that surprised was the genius-like occurrence, a la Cruyff, of Cholo to put Marcos Llorente forward. The 1-4-4-2 was the same as always, as well as waiting for events in the medium and low blocks, giving the ball to the rival, as well as starting the game with direct soccer. Of course, the rejection and the second play were almost always won by Athletic and that is why it was superior in the first half.

Reagent. When he won the duels, Athletic attacked very close to Atlético's area, which defended itself far behind as usual, and there appeared, undetectable between the lines, Iker Muniain. I should have controlled it Thomas, but the Ghanaian seems to have his head more outside than inside as his father verbalizes. Garitano's men were looking to open the can of the two joint lines of four of the Cholo team by making changes in orientation. Thus came Muniain's goal. Atlético reacted quickly and after three minutes they had already tied. Atlético de Simeone gave the sensation once again that when he goes on the attack, he creates danger and even scores goals. The Argentine coach prefers to get the victories from the defense and thus he has achieved all his successes. The problem this season is that the Atlético de Simeone has 13 draws and the draw is no longer a visitor because he needs to win to be fourth.

Well Llorente. Atlético started with this eleven: Oblak; Trippier, Savic, Giménez, Lodi; Koke, Thomas, Saúl, Thomas, Carrasco; Llorente and Diego Costa. Individually, it is worth noting Carrasco, who had up to three occasions and had one more march than the rest. But Atlético's best was Marcos Llorente, who played very well as a forward, a place where he had never acted. Physically, Marcos is far above the rest and missed that he entered the five changes, which Simeone consumed in three batchesBecause he could have continued on the field and had delayed his position, the change being one of the other means (Saúl or Thomas) that did not have Marcos's physical condition.

Plantillon. After consuming the five changes, it was found again that Atlético has a great squad. The match ended with this team: Oblak; Arias, Savic, Giménez, Lodi; Lemar, Herrera, Thomas, Saúl; Correa and Morata. He looked for the victory in the final stage, but he was late and he found Unai Simón who made a stop for Arias (like the one Oblak did for Yerai in the first half). Atlético de Simeone must be fourth yes or yes. The draw of San Mamés deviates him somewhat from the goal, but he still has 10 days to achieve it. Cholo has in his hands to get performance from the great players he has in his ranks.
