Suárez, Savic and Saúl, on yellow alert in full Tourmalet

The Uruguayan and the Elchean saw their fourth yellow in Granada and the Montenegrin the ninth. After the two games against Levante, Villarreal and Real Madrid arrive.


Atletico took a very merit victory in Granada. Devastated by casualties and visiting a difficult stadium, he was able to take all three points thanks to goals from Llorente and Ángel Correa. To face Levante, he recovers João Félix, Giménez and Vitolo, and Simeone can make a call with 18 players from the first team.

Great news for the coach, but there was also a less positive section in the last game. In Granada, Mateu Lahoz showed five yellow cards, all of them to the Atlético players, where several arrived after protests, since there was no violent game or a high number of fouls (the Valencian referee indicated 14 of the locals and 20 of the visitors). Luis Suárez and Saúl in the first half and Savic, Koke and Carrasco in the second were the 'graced' with a card.

Yellow ones that place Atlético's players on the razor's edge. In the case of Suárez and Saúl, it was the fourth card in the League. In Savic's the ninth. Koke for his part adds seven and Carrasco three. Therefore, Atlético visit Levante with three warned players. If Suárez, Saúl or Savic see the yellow in the Ciutat de València, they will have to complete a penalty cycle and will not be against Levante on Saturday at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Looking a little further, going from game to game, after the double commitment against Levante, Atlético will have to visit Villarreal, a stadium that is always very complicated for the rojiblancos. And then the derby against Real Madrid appears. Four games of maximum complication for Atlético and where three of their basic pieces are one card away from necessarily having to miss a match.
