If a very fast renewal and by surprise does not fix it, the one from Sevilla will be the last match that Luis Suárez plays with the rojiblanca in front of the Atlético fans, at the Wanda Metropolitano. A farewell to which the fans will respond in a big way, in a standing ovation, for his 21 goals last season, fundamental for that League in Valladolid in which the Uruguayan cried like a child while calling his family.

Simeone confirmed it: Suarez will play against Sevilla. He will be the starter. Beside him, Griezmann, who will seek to score again in the League in the penultimate game of this season (He has only three goals in 2021-22, the worst record in his career), ripping off the cap. The rojiblancos have already achieved what they were looking for: to qualify among the top four, to be a team in the next Champions League. They did it last day. This will be the celebration before your audience. And the farewell of soccer players like the Uruguayan before his fans, the one that spent a season without an audience waiting to celebrate it.

Without saving anything against Sevilla

Simeone’s idea for this game is to form an eleven with Oblak; Llorente, who returns after serving a sanction, Savic, Giménez, Reinildo; Of Paul, Koke, Kondogbia, Carrasco; Suarez and Griezmann. He rehearsed with them for the last time this afternoon at Cerro. With them he will jump tomorrow against Sevilla. To keep looking at Lopetegui’s men through the rear-view mirror in LaLiga.
