Simeone has a plan against Athletic

As we have commented in recent days, Ángel Correa will be the one to take Antoine Griezmann’s position against Athletic. The Argentine has Simeone’s full trust and will be responsible for filling the gaps in Ernesto Valverde’s well-organized defense. But if the original plan doesn’t work, the Argentine coach resorts to a plan B.

Despite what he said yesterday Simeone is clear he will turn to Griezmann if he fails to equalize the draw. This way we could see the French on the pitch tonight if they fail to beat Athletic. And the Rojiblancos are aware that they will play the season in the Copa del Rey tonight.
