It's only worth winning again

Villarreal and Atlético seek to escape their bad spells. Suárez is warned of sanction and if he sees a yellow he will miss the derby against Real Madrid.

La Cerámica measures two injured teams (follow the game live on AS.com). Atlético visits Villarreal with the need to reconnect with the path of victory, to once again be the safe and forceful team of a few weeks ago after the two punctures against Levante, which have compressed LaLiga and reduced the mattress on the head and the defeat in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Chelsea. A single goal scored in three games and the feeling that without the success of Luis Suárez and with Llorente away from the area, everything is more difficult.

The first one arrives warned of sanction and a yellow would leave him without a derby against Real Madrid. The second has been suffering a lot playing as a full back or right wing and will have the relief of returning to the middle with the presence of Vrsaljko in the last game before recovering Trippier. The Croatian returns to the team after missing two games and joins the discharge of Héctor Herrera, who has already recovered from the coronavirus. Simeone could bet on two natural players on the lanes, with Vrsaljko on the right and Lodi on the left to return Lemar to playmaker. João Félix and Saúl are the great sacrifices in the starting scheme.

Villarreal, meanwhile, attends the event after certifying their qualification to the quarterfinals of the Europa League with an initial scare against Salzburg. Now, Dynamo Kiev looks into the distance. In LaLiga, the European positions have been complicated with the six consecutive punctures that he accumulates and he also sees it as an obligation to win again at home, something that has not happened in the competition since January 2. That phrase of a Luis Aragonés that Simeone continues without reaching in victories, since he remains at one but the last three punctures have prevented the tie.

The rojiblanco team always suffers a lot when they visit La Cerámica. Simeone has only added two wins in his eight visits as a coach and stopping Gerard Moreno and Alcácer is his great concern after connecting eight consecutive games conceding. The yellow submarine has already scored in the Wanda Metropolitano and opening Asenjo's goal is the other great mystery for Cholo. But there is no room for another puncture, victory is necessary on this night.
