The last day arrives. Atlético de Madrid will play in Valladolid La Liga this Saturday, while Real Madrid will play at home against Villarreal waiting for a mattress slip to finish champion in a new session of transistors. Well, this time the mattresses have plenty of reasons to believe in their team.
Atlético de Madrid comes to the game with morale through the roof after the victory against Osasuna. A match in which he managed to turn the score around in the last ten minutes. A blow on the table that suggests that the rojiblancos will fight until the last minute to be champion at José Zorrilla, and that they are prepared for any adversity.
The team will arrive in Pucela after showing a great image in the last three games. The first parts against Barcelona, Real Sociedad and Osasuna are to frame. Surely it will be the same in Valladolid. Five victories in the last seven games endorse it. The sensations are very good.
The Suarez area
Luis Suárez scored the winning goal in the 88th minute against Osasuna. Breaking a scoring drought since March 21. We’ll see if the streak continues … In the important moments of this season it has always appeared. And in Valladolid LaLiga is played.
The bad moment of his rival
Valladolid awaits him, who has lost their last three games against Valencia, Villarreal and Real Sociedad with a balance of nine goals in favor and one against. A moment so delicate that he has won a match of the last 20 that he has played, he only achieved three points against Getafe. Everything suggests that the leader on the last day is not the right rival to react.
Carrasco wants this League
Surely he was the best player in the last three Atlético de Madrid games. And without a doubt he is one of the soccer players of the championship. His assistance to Luis Suárez in the 88th minute made it clear that he will once again leave his soul in that Atlético is champion.
The pucelanos do not depend on themselves
The motivation for Valladolid is salvation. But if with the passing of the minutes they see that Huesca and Elche are winning … their involvement may go down. In the last matches, Valladolid have shown that pressure can …
Marcos Llorente’s campaign
Even though he hasn’t scored in the last three games. Something that with the season that is doing is news. But he has always appeared in the difficult moments of Atlético de Madrid. So if the game gets complicated it may appear again … Their numbers in the absence of a game are to frame …
Simeone has the measure taken
The last Blanquivioleta victory against the colchoneros was in 2009. Since then they have met on eleven occasions with a balance of ten rojiblancas victories and a draw. The only draw was last season in a bad game that ended 0-0. Despite this, the balance remains 24 goals in favor of Atlético and four against.
The death of the ‘Pupas’
Talk of ‘Pupas’ has been stopped years ago. Since the arrival of Simeone, there has been more talk that it is an annoying, violent team or in recent weeks they have even been accused of having invented hydration breaks. But of the ‘Pupas’ there is almost no trace after winning seven titles in the last nine years. Not even the two lost Champions League finals have managed to erase this nickname …
Correa’s step forward
One of the players who has taken a step forward this season has been Correa. The Argentine pulled the car when Luis Suárez, Joao and Lemar were absent. Now he is untouchable at eleven. At José Zorrilla he will once again have a spectacular physical display.
The curse of Real Madrid
Real Madrid have never won a league, reaching the last round as second. Up to ten times it has happened and the leader always ended up winning the championship. In 65-66 it happened with Atlético de Madrid, the rojiblancos had one more point and beat Spanish in Barcelona. Winning LaLiga. Even in 2009-10 they saw Barcelona win a league in Valladolid. The Catalans won 0-4 at José Zorrilla.
The League of 73
Despite the fact that none of the current players in the squad were born and that Cholo was only three years old. The current LaLiga in a way is having many similarities with the one that the colchoneros won in 1973. On that occasion, with three games remaining, they tied at zero at the Camp Nou, up to four teams fought for the League until the final stage of the competition, Last they will play against a team that plays the relegation in the last day. On that occasion they beat Deportivo 3-1 and were champions. This Saturday Valladolid plays.
The number 12
The Atlético de Madrid fans will support the team in Valladolid, just as they have in the last two league games. The songs are reaching the soccer players on the pitch and are extra-motivating them. Against Real Sociedad gave him strength to maintain 2-1 and against Osasuna to overcome the match.
Atleti leaves it for the end
Nine of the ten leagues that Atlético de Madrid have won have been in the last day. So it was to be expected that in 2021 the Cholo’s pupils would not change a tradition of so many years. Only in 76 did he win the League in the penultimate date.
Surely there is another reason to be optimistic for the mattress fans for the League final that awaits the mattress workers.
