From Paul and ten more


Rodrigo de Paul (Sarandi, Argentina, 1994) debuted in Primera, Racing, led by Luis Zubeldía. The mark he left there, in that club, is such that, for years, room 13 of Casa Tita, where the boys from the quarry live, bears his name. In the bunch of keys, for years, there was still that one, the one he still kept from that pension. The feet on the ground, that witness key, the head full of dreams. They all traveled in their suitcase to Europe. To Valencia. I was 20 years old.

Two years later he left for Italy without leaving a trace, with no more souvenir keys in his hand than those he already had.. He was too young. In a position, extreme, in which he did not fit. In Udine it was modeled, it became huge as an interior. And with Argentina, the need made him the fabulous midfielder that Atleti enjoys today. A week ago, the Metropolitan fired him on his feet, an ovation that rained down on him even louder than the falling waterspout.

Today he returns to Mestalla as essential for Cholo. Clock and handle. From Paul and ten others. And that Cholo recovers from Anfield two fundamental pieces: Griezmann and Savic. Especially the last (follow the game live on Because the red-and-white legs are still tired. The one to play 53 ‘with ten on Wednesday. Once again Atleti conditioned by that line, the defense, which was once made of steel and today seems fragile glass. Beyond Felipe’s expulsion, Liverpool’s is the rojiblancos’ eighth away game conceding. Against Betis, already with Savic, Oblak did not pick up a ball from his net. That is the plan that Cholo is considering today. Trace that eleven. He would sit João on a bench to which another former Mestalla, Kondogbia, returns. Correa would play. With Suárez. With Grizi, which also returns, and in each game it is increasingly the Grizi of before.

Bordalás plan

In front, Bordalás will look for his Valencia to be the one that was seen against Villarreal. The strength with which he started in Mestalla, the strong team, the DNA that was recovered, collapsed after five days. Seven games without victory, the doubts. And in the last that turn, defense far back, without pressure, a clean sheet, win again. That version is what the Cholo expects.

With Soler and Gayá even if they are not at one hundred. Gabriel Paulista will not be there directly. Diakhaby will play, a coin in the air. Maxi returns to the list but it seems that Marcos André will not come out of the eleven. In this match at Mestalla in which Simeone will play with De Paul with a purpose: to steal all the keys to Bordalás.
