Atlético took the league title and Luis Suárez was largely to blame for the rojiblanco's success. His 21 goals were decisive for Simeone's team to become LaLiga champion. However, in Champions the story is very different. The Uruguayan was left without scoring in this competition last season. He played six games in this tournament, a total of 451 minutes and did not do a single goal.. Something inappropriate for a player of his quality and of his category.
Now a new season begins and Atlético has high hopes for a Champions League In which it will be difficult in a group with Porto, Milan and Liverpool. If the Wanda Metropolitano team wants to do something important in this competition, they will need the Uruguayan's goals. This season he scored his first goal in the match against Villarreal. Against Espanyol, in the last league match he went practically unnoticed.
Another player who will want to make up for himself in the Champions League is Correa. The Argentine was one of the best Atlético players last year. And in LaLiga he already has three goals, so he has taken a step forward in relation to his relationship with the goal. But the Champions League is not a tournament that is particularly good in this regard.
Correa has only scored one goal in the Champions League. It was on September 30, 2015 against Benfica, in the group stage. Atlético lost 1-2 and the goal was from the Argentine. In the Europa League he also scored a goal, on March 15, 2018 in the second round against Lokomotiv. Correa has a new challenge: to become important in the Champions League. It already is in LaLiga.
