To Granada with the post

Simeone only has 14 first-team field players. João Félix returns, but he will be substitute. El Cholo loses Costa and Savic.


After the break, the curves. Because they are closed to Atleti in eight days. If Turin is Tuesday and Barça on Sunday at the Metropolitan, the trip starts today in Granada (follow the match live on Visit Atlético to one of LaLiga's revelation teams and he does it without a coat: he only has 14 field players from the first team. Again. Like so many in recent years. Begins to be but

To the already safe casualties of Thomas and Saul, by sanction, and Giménez, one month out by injury, the break added two more. On the one hand Savic, who on Tuesday relapsed from his injury after returning with the group. On another coast, and this one hurts: the cervical hernia forced him to go through the operating room. For many months Cholo is left with only one center forward, Morata, who is in the best streak of his life, six games in a row, but can no longer catch a cold. Saponjic, the other, is as if he were not there: he has not entered this list that the Cholo has had to complete with three youth players.

One is Toni Moya, half Saul, who can play central, and pray the Cholo not to need it: healthy only has Felipe and Beautiful, headlines today and a priori all curves. Another is novelty: Darío Poveda, scorer of B. He has eight in eight games and could have minutes, like João Félix.

Because the return of the Portuguese before Juve and Messi is the good news of Atleti in Granada. Does not point to holder. Yes Llorente and Herrera, a couple in the center almost unpublished and hungry for redemption: they only played together in Vitoria and it was a disaster. Vitolo is not usually it: he returned to eleven before Espanyol and Atleti won, although he did not just frighten the doubts. Today he will wear a striker to accompany Morata. It always has intention.

How Diego Martínez could wear mirrors in his vest. The miracle of his Granada, back to Primera 19-20, has much of the Cholo Method. Standing ball, strong pressure and intensity. And players who die. Vertical Soldier up, Doors in the band and Duarte back. The last two are key in the successes of a Granada that has three games without winning. The doubt is Azeez or Fede Vico. Thus they won Barça, they pressed Madrid, which for them the whole season is a curve.
