Simeone tests with Witsel in the middle

With the head only in the Atleti. This is how Simeone hopes that his men have returned from the break. After yesterday’s training, in which the Argentines and Cunha were yet to return, the Argentine had this Thursday with the entire template, except for the headdresses: Reguilón, who speeds up the recovery process of his pubalgiaLemar, who was aiming for Saturday but has not yet joined the group, and Hermoso, suffering from a torticollis that has separated him from the green for the third consecutive day. Neither was De Paul present, with permission from the club. A total of 16 outfield players with a first-team record, plus the four goalkeepers (Oblak, Grbic, Gomís and Iturbe) and various youth players completed the session.

After exercising in the gym, the team jumped, after 7:00 p.m., to Camp 1 del Cerro to continue preparing for next Saturday’s match against Sevilla. After a more relaxed first part, in which the players enjoyed teqball (a practice that combines table tennis and soccer) in pairs, Cholo tried Pizjuán’s face. In the uncontested attacking drill he outlined, he practiced with a team consisting of: Oblak; Nahuel, Savic, Giménez, Reinildo; Koke, Witsel, Saul; Correa, Joao Felix, Carrasco.

Thus, Simeone would repeat with a defense of four, already with his two trusted center backs in the rear, but he would modify the scheme above, he would go on to play with a 4-1-4-1. Of the two forwards with whom he came out in the derby (Griezmann and João), he would only have one: the Portuguese, to add another man in midfield: Witsel. The Belgian comes from acting in the middle with his National Team and it would be the main modification of the Argentine. Who wouldn’t be would be a Morata who, despite coming from scoring with Spainaccording to today’s tests, would be forced to wait his turn from the bench for the second consecutive game. Tomorrow, at 10:30, the team returns to training in what will be the last session before Seville.
