Atlético’s numbers this season


Diego Pablo Simeone

El Cholo arrived in a much worse situation than the current one. He arrived with the team almost in decline and made him champion of the Europa League. Starting the most successful stage of the club in its history. During this time, some sectors have even asked for his dismissal speaking of an end of the cycle. But he has continued working, and has managed to win a League seven years later.

A wide margin of confidence has undoubtedly been earned. “If you believe and work, you can,” he said after the first title. Today is what fight and faith play.

TOP Players

In the last two summers, Atlético de Madrid has added two TOP level players to the cause. Two regulars on the Ballon d’Or lists such as Luis Suárez and Griezmann. They have already appeared this season in some bad times. The Uruguayan scored two goals against Getafe and Real Sociedad in two games that were lost. While the Frenchman made it 1-2 against Valencia and tied a crucial match at San Siro. Both are a plus of quality, and that in the long run will be noticed.

Defensive tradition

It is true that defensively Atlético de Madrid is sealing its worst numbers of the Simeone stage. But it is also true that if someone has known how to guide the team to be one of the safest behind in Europe, that has been Cholo. (Seven Zamoras, five from Oblak and two from Courtois, in 10 years in Spain). You already know the way to restore balance to the team.

The return of Llorente and Lemar

The Atlético de Madrid coaching staff has long focused more on finding solutions than problems. Few people have noticed in the last stretch of the League in the absence of Llorente and Lemar. Two players who were key last season to win LaLiga. Two footballers who give many solutions in the center of the field.

No stops for selections

One of the best news for Atlético de Madrid is continuity. Simeone will be able to work with all his men again until the month of March when the next national team break comes. Enough time to recover the mechanisms that have been lacking in recent games.

Gunpowder up

This season Atlético de Madrid has made the blanket theory good. He says that either you cover your head or your feet, it is impossible to do both. It comes to say that you are either good defensively or offensively. In recent years the Cholo team has found it difficult to see the door, while adding doors to zero with a certain normality. Now he achieves the goals, he is the second highest scoring team in all of LaLiga. That’s a plus in the long run.
