Atlético - Rayo: The day in which Simeone can give the alternative to… Simeone

Atlético de Madrid is already traveling to Riyadh, where it will arrive at night, to play against Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid and Athletic in the Spanish Super Cup, the first title of the season. Savic He has not recovered from the muscle break he suffered against Mallorca on December 12 and is not part of an expedition in which he is not Griezmann, although in his case it was expected. The good news is that no new case of covid has appeared among the rest of the players.

24 footballers form the rojiblanca expedition, including six team players, the goalkeeper Christian Gómez, the defender Joan Rojas, the media Alberto Moreno Y Javi serrano and the forwards Giuliano Simeone Y Carlos Martin and the 18 that remain available with a professional file except made of Saponjic, which is also injured.

Totally ruled out of the fight for the League title, The Super Cup is presented as a band-aid to cover part of the gigantic red-and-white wound in a season in which the team is far below expectations, but in which you still have the option of being champions in three competitions. Two years ago Atlético fell in the final of the Super Cup against Real Madrid on penalties, and that is a pending subject in this edition of 2022. The first game of the rojiblancos will be on Thursday at eight o’clock in the afternoon against Athletic Bilbao, with whom they have not been able – a defeat and a draw – in their last two league matches.

Apparently in the last training it seems that Simeone is determined to bet on the duo formed by Joao Y Correa in attack, which would mean the substitution of Luis Suarez, who could not play in Villarreal due to suspension, and the Brazilian Mattheus Cunha. Thus, the eleven would be the one formed by Oblak, Llorente, Giménez, Felipe, Hermoso, Carrasco, Koke, Kondogbia, Lemar, Correa Y Joao.

Atlético will bet on the Super Cup as it will also bet on the Copa del Rey, caware that they are the two simplest ways that he has at his disposal to justify his bad season, since being realistic it seems impossible to fight for the Champions League and in the League it is absolutely the same to be second than fourth, since the only objective right now is plausible -and inalienable- is to be classified among the first four to secure the Champions League 22-23.
