And win again ...

Atlético need to win at the home of a Granada depleted in attack by the losses of Luis Suárez and Soldado. Simeone recovers Hermoso, but loses Giménez in exchange.


And win again. Luis Aragonés, like Simeone's match by match, left his particular vision of what this sport is for the history of Atlético and Spanish football: winning, winning, winning and winning and winning again ... Luis, as El Cholo has been one of the most important people in an Atlético who in Granada must apply the theory of the Wise Man of Hortaleza. The rojiblanco team drew last day against Celta and their rivals took advantage of that puncture, so that both from Chamartín and from Camp Nou they see possible the comeback to the leader (follow the game live on .

A Atlético whose position remains privileged: five points ahead of Madrid (with two games less) and eight points over Barça (with one less). But for others it has already begun to show signs of weakness. And we already know that faith moves mountains. That is why winning in Granada will have a double value: for the points and for the psychological. But he will have to work hard and suffer.

On top of that, every week the Madrid club encounters a new setback. In this it has been confirmed that he will play the Champions League against Chelsea at home in Bucharest. What was missing. In health, at least, there have been no more positives for coronavirus. The list of casualties is still long. Simeone recovers Carrasco, who will start, and takes Hermoso, who with only one training session can enter the eleven because Giménez falls due to injury. The Belgian will act as the right lane, so Marcos Llorente will advance his position, towards where he does the most damage. Kondogbia will start again and Luis Suárez will try to continue his streak at the top. Against Celta he touched two balls and scored two goals.

Without Luis Suárez and Soldado, the focus is on Kenedy

Granada has already managed to get among the notable of our League. Based on work and doing things well, consistently, which is never easy. Diego Martínez's team has 30 points and the European positions within reach again. At home he has played eleven games, with six wins, three draws and two losses. Only Valladolid and Barça managed to win in their fiefdom. Atleti is warned, who will have to improve in defense. Otherwise you will have trouble. Granada have scored 16 goals in those eleven games. Only in two did he not score: Barcelona and Celta.

The spotlights have been taken by two who will not be there today due to injury, Luis Suárez and Soldado, but Kenedy does damage from the end. It is on a roll and Atlético will have a problem there, right now when it seems that it is a team like the rest and not superlative in defense. Granada behind does have more problems. He has a rojiblanco player, Nehuén, and we'll see if he starts. Both teams do damage in the areas, although in the middle there will be battle. LaLiga enters a decisive phase. And winning again is the vitamin that a somewhat diminished Atlético now needs.
