Joao aims to substitute in the derby

Diego Simeone, coach of the Atlético de Madrid, is already preparing his eleven for Sunday’s derby against him Real Madrid with Joao Félix out of the team, according to the first tests of the technician, who already has Yannick Carrasco Y Kieran trippier, direct to the ownership in the session of this Wednesday.

Jan Oblak, in goal; Stefan Savic and Felipe Monteiro, in the center of defense; Beautiful mario, on the left side; Koke Resurrection Y Saúl Ñíguez, in the middle center; Angel Correa, on the right wing; Y Luis Suárez and Marcos Llorente, up front, complete today’s likely lineup for the derby.

Joao Félix does not appear in it, scorer in the 0-2 at Villarreal last Sunday, when he was also a substitute, and who was not part of the probable starting line-up in any of the exercises organized by the coaching staff in the morning session at the Ciudad Deportiva de Majadahonda, with what that presupposes, even if nothing else was the first rehearsal and there are still four days left for the crash.

At the front, while, Marcos Llorente rises his position, which he formed with Luis Suárez in the theoretical attack that he plans to start Simeone in the derby, while Ángel Correa played on the right wing, with Koke Resurrección and Saúl Ñíguez in the middle and with Carrasco on the far left, after three loss games.

The Belgian international returned to training on Wednesday, having recovered from a post-traumatic injury to the muscles of his left leg. So did Kieran trippier, after the individualized and specific sessions that he has done during the last week and a half for his return to competition.

The English full-back is now available to play, once the ten-week sanction imposed by the English Federation (a total of eleven crashes for that reason has been lost), which ended last Sunday, Trippier goes straight back to eleven on the right side.

On the left side will be Mario Hermoso, with Stefan Savic and Felipe Monteiro as centrals. In that demarcation, José María Giménez, that he has missed the last two games due to a muscle injury and that he is a probable loss in Sunday’s game, to which Thomas Lemar could reach, which recovers from a blow.


The French footballer trained this Wednesday on the sidelines due to the discomfort derived from the trauma suffered during the visit to the La Cerámica stadium and which caused his replacement “as a precaution” at halftime. It is doubt for the derby. In the case of being fit, it could start and alter the eleven tested this Wednesday by Simeone.
