Atlético trained at the Majadahonda facilities after the rest day that Simeone granted to his players. The rojiblanco team is already thinking about this Saturday’s clash against Barcelona (9:00 pm). For the same, the Atlético coach only has the loss of Kondogbia, sanctioned. The rest of the players are available for one of the matches marked in red on the calendar not only of the team but of the Wanda Metropolitano fans.
Simeone did not give excessive clues in the face of what he can put in the fray against Barcelona and carried out a session in which the ball was the protagonist. But in one of the exercises he put Correa, Luis Suárez, Griezmann and João Félix together. It could be a training circumstance or perhaps something else and that the Argentine coach thinks of the four of them to play against Barcelona. Luis Suárez would be the most advanced player, helped by Griezmann, with Correa entering for one wing and João Félix for another.
Cholo does not usually take out all his offensive potential from the start and we will see what happens in the next work session. Along with these four were also Lemar and De Paul. It seems complicated that Koke can stay out of the eleven, the same as Marcos Llorente. If Simeone played with the four mentioned in the offensive facet, Marcos Llorente would have to play either as a right back or in the center of the field in one of the double pivot positions. For the coach, the Madrilenian is one of the team’s fixtures.
Simeone dedicated a good part of the work session to the shots on goal. It costs Atlético a world to score goals and the rojiblanco coach rehearses shots on goal again and again, in which he demands precision. The lack of forcefulness against the rival area has penalized the rojiblanco team in several games. Already it was zero against Athletic, Alavés and Porto.
