Saul is reunited

Atlético has lived of the goal of their midfielders during the last fortnight. The rojiblanco team has seen how in the last four games their media they have made five of the team's seven goals. While the offensive trident formed by João Félix, Morata and Diego Costa is not fit, the second line has assumed the scoring responsibility so as not to get out of the fight for the Champions League and to get ahead in the tie against Liverpool 1-0.

Y Saul Ñíguez has been A capital player for those goals. The '8' achieved the victory goal against the reds, being the smartest in the area and taking advantage of a loose ball after a corner that ended with the right leg to overcome Alisson. Somewhat capital for travel to Anfield with the moral intact before the current champion of the Champions League and to visit one of the most complicated stadiums in the world in full results crisis as a visitor.

In addition, Saul added somewhat precious in the visit to the RCDE Stadium to rescue a point against Espanyol. The mattress squad hitched a volley from outside the area without dropping the ball after the clearance of the blue and white back and released an impossible zambombazo for Diego López. The '8' got your fourth both of the course, the third in the League after those against Athletic on the tenth day and against Osasuna in the 17th.

But beyond the goals, Saul is a fundamental player for Simeone. The joker of the Cholo, has rebounded from face to door focused on contributing playing in the middle, his natural position. From Mestalla, when he was the third left side of the match against Valencia after Lodi and Arias and saw how Ferrán Torres made a marinade by his side, he has not had to move back to a place where he plays when he plays, but he does not feel comfortable.

Shield / Athletic Flag

Saul is the field player with more minutes in Atlético (3,210) and see how only Oblak surpasses him (3,156). The fourth mattress captain is one of the untouchables of Simeone with Thomas, Koke, Lodi and currently Felipe and Correa. Although his performance has not been optimal during the course, his work is basic in the Cholo scheme, which moves him between the double pivot and the band according to the rival.

Against Liverpool he formed the rojiblanco safety belt in the middle with Thomas, while against Villarreal he started on the left wing so that Koke and Thomas were the midfielders. With the goal of Alcácer returned to form a couple in the middle with the Ghanaian, and was key in the pressure to end up taking the victory. Finished with 13 recoveries and a physical job that only he can give. Saul had lost his punch, one of its main features, but has recovered the goal at a fundamental moment of the course. It seems that in the last matches He no longer suffers from the dizziness of playing in up to four positions different in the same game and has focused on his role as a recuperator and team starter, where he is a top player.
