Pizjuán, cotton proof

Sevilla receives this afternoon (18:30 hours, M + League) to an Atlético at par in the table and with doubts. Lopetegui and Simeone share problem: lack of goal.


The future goes through Sánchez Pizjuán today (follow the match live on As.com). Atlético arrives at the house of Sevilla tied for points, 20 both, and equal in the table: fifth Atlético, sixth Sevilla. It is not casual. Lopetegui and Simeone live almost parallel paths in their teams since the season began. The weekday left more doubts than certainties and many notes in the coaches' notebooks. Especially in the Argentine.

Because the doubts of this Athletic in reconstruction are not finished. All the smiles that left the victory against Athletic were frozen in Vitoria. Losing 45 minutes, signings that do not finish starting (Llorente, Herrera) and that stone in the ankle that weights and that Simeone can not get loose: the lack of goal. Only 11, in 11 games. His worst record ever, as in 71-72 (finished 4th), 04-05 (11th) and 05-06 (10th). And all the years that in just a few months have fallen to Costa. Today, against his favorite rival, 11 goals, he will be substitute. In its place will be Correa, with Morata, team pichichi (four goals). Three assists have given the Argentine in the last two games. The rest, the fixed ones. Thomas, Koke, Saul and Lemar. Vitolo returns to the Pizjuán that he abandoned by Atleti without hardly counting. He was injured and disappeared for Cholo, although he is already back.

The lack of goal from Lopetegui

The problem of the goal sounds to Lopetegui: 14 leads. De Jong has one, Nolito two and Chicharito three. It is Ocampos, the best signing of the last revolution of Monchi in Seville, for its intensity and verticality, also in the goal. Cuatro leads, pichichi in this Sevilla by Óliver Torres.

And if goals are missing above, back close the losses. Reguilón, another of the men of this Seville, until today will not know if it will arrive or not. Yesterday he was part of the session normally. Escudero, his substitute, insurance does not arrive. Koundé and Diego Carlos are the only centrals. The second, basic piece. The solidity of this Sevilla de Lopetegui begins in his boots. The weekday and the draw of Valencia in isolated play left doubts as well. Today he receives a direct rival. Cotton test A match of those who can tell you what to really aspire to.
