He Atlético de Madrid
He returned to training this Thursday after last night’s draw against the Huesca (0-0) with the headlines of that duel in the gym and the insistence on shots on goal with the players who were not from the game in The Alcoraz, two days after receiving the Villarreal in the Metropolitan.
In search of do not repeat a match without scoring like that of Huesca
, which came after having thrashed the Pomegranate (6-1) in the league premiere, forwards like Diego Costa, the Argentinian Angel Correa or the youth squad Victor Mollejo they honed their aim in drills with figures nailed to the grass to emulate the rival defense.
It was one of the exercises of a session with all the footballers who were not starters in The Alcoraz, except for the Uruguayan José María Giménez, who is in home isolation after testing positive for COVID-19 from last week, and the Croatian Sime Vrsaljko, who stepped on grass to continue recovering from his contracture.
In it were players who had rotation in the Aragonese visit, such as the captain Jorge ‘Koke’ Resurrection or the central Montenegrin Stefan savic, but that they will probably return to the starting eleven for Saturday’s game against him Villarreal (16.00 hours).
The rojiblanco team will receive a rival who usually poses difficulties for them – they have beaten them 5 times out of 16 duels in the ‘era Diego Pablo Simeone ’, although the Athletic has prevailed in the last two duels against the yellow in the Wanda Metropolitano- and that comes from recovering from the win against him Barcelona (4-0) winning a 3-1 at Alaves.
