Atlético 10, Getafe 0. This is the balance of the last ten visits of the Getafe team to the Atlético de Madrid field. A disastrous balance that is also emphasized by the fact that in none of those games has he been able to violate the mattress defense. However, the current Getafe reaches the Wanda with an impressive service record: a single defeat in the last ten days.
For Atlético this is a capital match. If he doesn’t win it, not only can he end up staying five points behind Barcelona -or what is the same, from the Champions League-, but could end up falling even to eighth place, according to the results of the rest of the meetings. Although it is true that there will still be a lot of room for maneuver ahead, it is clear that the points cannot escape from the Wanda, a stadium that has been celebrating two consecutive wins for his teamthe last one epic against Valencia.
Simeone lose to Wassto Gimenez already Griezmann, but instead retrieves Llorente already Kondogbia and everything indicates that the two will go straight to the starting eleven. The novelty in the call is the presence of Giuliano Simeon, what this week has renewed contract until 2025, and that tonight he could have his first minutes in the First Division. The fact that will debut as a starter will be the Mozambican Reinildo Mandavawhich is called to consolidate on the left wing of the defense.
There will be several victims for the defeat in Camp Nou of the last day. Vrsaljko, Beautiful, Lodi Y Paul’s they fall from eleven and the surprise this week has been to see how carrasco, author of the 0-1 against Barcelona, was not in the starting team either. Perhaps the Belgian drags some annoyance, because he happens to be an essential player for Cholo and also comes from scoring. If he was not in the game, his substitute would be the French Lemarin a worryingly out of shape in the last games.
Thus, the eleven with which Simeone has rehearsed during the week has been the one formed by Oblak, Llorente, Savic, Felipe, Reinildo, Koke, Kondogbia, Correa, Lemar, Luis Suarez Y cunha. If so, the presence output of two center forwardssomething that is not too common in Simeone’s approaches.
Pita From Burgos Bengoetxea, with which Atlético recently lost in Seville with the goal of Ocampos in the discount, and the rojiblancos meet Quique Sanchez Flores, the coach who led them to win a Europa League in Hamburg in 2010. By the way, the statistics against the Madrid coach are not exactly positive: only once has Atlético been able to defeat Quique’s teamswhich instead has taken a booty of five draws and three wins.
