The keys to the last day: score first and control emotions

Simeone, faced with the dilemma of deciding whether to join the quality of Joao Flix in the eleven with the punch of Luis Surez, both key against Osasuna.

The League advances at the rate of thriller towards a denouement loaded with attractions, except for the capitulation of Bara, who added to his very few options the shame with a defeat at the Camp Nou against Celta. TO Koeman his footballers did not accompany him in his act of vindication, while Zidane They begged him not to leave while they wiped away the little sweat they have left after winning at San Mams. Simeone it does not need one or the other. He is the master of the Attica, the master of his heart, although subjecting him to such tachycardia is foolhardy.

The Atltico kept the banner, with two points of advantage over the neighbor in the absence of a match, after failing the unspeakable, cursing the VAR and seeing how Osasuna got ahead. Luis Surez He came back for the goal at the right time. There he will need it in Valladolid, where the only proof of local life is to prevent the rojiblanco alien. Who gives more?

Simeone’s advantage is two points, but the draw will not serve him, as long as Madrid win their match against Villarreal, because the tiebreaker in equality benefits Zidane’s, better in direct confrontations. The need, then, simplifies the rojiblanco approach: on fire. The problem is not production, which was enough against Osasuna, but definition.

Unlike his counterpart, Simeone has virtually all of his players to choose from. He cannot forget that, at the most difficult moment, he jumped Joao Flix from the bank to change the game. The last battle is not the time to debate, but the Atlético is in it with all its banners raised thanks to those who represent quality and punch in its purest states. The title is going to need both.

Between quality and the end

For Madrid, the biggest advantage is the alleged disinterest of its rival, concentrated in the first final in its history, the following week in the Europa League. However, the team of Unai emery deserves to be taken into consideration in any circumstance. Their starters have football and their substitutes have it, because they grow with the food of the game.

Since they know that their great objective is Europe, they have won in the field of the needy Valladolid and have beaten nothing less than Sevilla. If something is not going to have in Valdebebas it is ballast in the legs. LaLiga maintains the appointments on Sunday, at 6:00 p.m., although Villarreal interests recommend moving the day forward to Saturday. Send the television, which does not want Eurovision as a rival.

Zidane to appear again with what he has, but, at this point, it no longer seems vital. The key will be in the management of emotions, especially for Atltico, which is the one that defends its advantage and does so against a Valladolid that struggles to preserve the category. Those of Sergio GonzlezHowever, they must take risks, since they are served by something other than victory. The Attic will have spaces.

The first goal

In intensity, however, there will be no comparison between the two shocks. The first of the two applicants to get ahead on the scoreboard will put a lot of pressure on the second. Madrid did it in San Mams, but Atltico managed to overcome it, even despite Osasuna’s goal.

Going through that trance made Simeone’s men feel like champions, although this has not ended. The League lacks the last shout, although the best and the highest paid in the world can no longer give it. The suspense of the League will be followed by the suspense about the continuity of Messi, Sergio Ramos and Zidane. I said, a thriller.
