Testing week at the
Atlético de Madrid
. The derby against him Real Madrid next Sunday in the Metropolitan Wanda, comes closer and the mattress team has some questions to answer.
There are several days of testing for the starting eleven and it seems that Diego Pablo Simeone, coach of the Athletic, manages various ideas for the team. It also remains to be seen what happens in the case of Thomas
Lemar, whose first training session with the rest of his teammates was this Thursday.
It can be understood that if the Frenchman is physically well (he had some discomfort from the game against Villarreal), may have a starting option in the derby. More than anything because it is a key piece for Simeone.
At the moment, waiting to see more evidence, at this time what is not clear is whether the Cholo is clear, worth the redundancy, who will be the partner of Luis
Suarez in attack.
In the first test of the week he opted for frames
, but not like that in the second one, this Thursday. This time it was Joao
Felix the one who was next to the Uruguayan.
The entrance of the Portuguese attacker by the midfielder Saul
Ñíguez, with the consequent return to the center of frames
Llorente, who played as a forward on Wednesday, was the only variation.
As we say, the companion of Suarez seems to be right now the doubt of Simeone for the derby. Joao comes from marking the Villarreal and his substitution in a game of that importance like the derby would be quite striking.
For the rest, it seems to have much more defined positions. It seems sung around so much of
Carrasco like Kieran
The technician’s test, as noted EFE, was composed of the goalkeeper Jan Oblak; the defenders Kieran Trippier, Stefan Savic, Felipe Monteiro and Mario Hermoso; the extremes Yannick Carrasco and Ángel Correa; the media Marcos Llorente and Koke Resurrection; and the forwards Joao Félix and Luis Suárez, with the elasticity that such a formation provides for any system, both to play with four behind as to do it with five.
