Returns Joao Félix. After overcoming a slight sprained knee and serving a sanction in Bilbao last Sunday, the Portuguese, who is ready, will reappear this Wednesday with el Atlético de Madrid in the encounter that will measure Osasuna in El Sadar and which will start at 10 pm.
A beacon of light for a team, the rojiblanco, who before Athletic showed the problems that he had been presenting throughout the season, especially far from the Metropolitan. One of those detected, and that continues over time, is the lack of goal. Atlético had clear chances at San Mamés (especially one of Carrasco and another of Arias), but only succeeded on one occasion with the goal of Unai Simon (Diego Costa) and returned to Madrid with a single point in his locker.
In this sense, the return of Joao Félix It can be very useful for Atlético. The Portuguese player is one of the most decisive footballers in the mattress team and although he is not shining as expected, he is differential. Further, Joao he seemed to have picked up speed together before the break, with his goals against Villarreal and Sevilla and his presence in Liverpool, where he appeared on Atlético’s first goal giving Llorente the pass before the Madrid player finished with a great shot. It was an improved version that now has to be continued.
Joao He has played 28 games this year, 24 of them as a starter, in which he has achieved six goals and three assists. He was injured about a month ago, but the knee sprain he suffered was low grade and last week he already trained with the group as normal.
In training the Portuguese are being seen at a very good level, eager to be back on the pitch. Sensations that must be confirmed on Wednesday in El Sadar, before Osasuna. Atlético needs you. And Joao wants to take the step forward.
