Today could be a great day

The leader has an extra ball and if he wins he would lead Real Madrid by eight points. Simeone can match Luis Aragonés as the coach with the most wins at the club.


Today can be a great day, as the Serrat song says. Atlético have reasons to think so. The rojiblanco team plays against Levante one of the two postponed games it has. A full-fledged extra ball. If Simeone's men defeat the Granota team, they will increase their advantage with Real Madrid, second placed, to eight points, an important distance. And he will still have one game less than the Madrid team. Any component of the rojiblanco team, any leader and any fan would have dreamed of being like this. But first, he must defeat a very serious rival, a team that is making history in the Cup, although it cannot disdain the league championship. Levante is in the middle of the table, lives quietly, the decline is relatively far, six points, but it cannot be neglected. Exceptional the work of Paco López at the head of Levante.

Today can be a great day, think about it like this. And that's how Simeone will consider it, in a very special match for him. Nine years after his arrival, he can reach Luis Aragonés as the coach with the most Atlético victories in its history. It makes my hair stand on end just thinking about it. The 'Sabio de Hortaleza' achieved 308 wins and Cholo's goal is to reach that figure when the match ends in Valencia. Luis and Simeone are the two coaches who have marked Atlético the most throughout its history. It is fair that the Argentine is the one to take over from Luis. But Commander Morales, Bardhi, De Frutos and company will want to postpone it for the next match ... which will be curiously against Levante. Roger is between cotton wool and the great challenge of the team is to play the final cup.

Today can be a great day, hard on him. And that's how Atlético will have to do it, because the Granota team is strong at home, where they have only lost two games out of eleven. Of his 27 points he has obtained 17 in his fiefdom. Only Real Madrid and Osasuna were able to defeat them in Valencian lands. The faith of the Levant is also capable of many things.

Today can be a great day where everything is to be discovered. The people of Madrid have been overcoming everything: the departure of Diego Costa, the sanction of Trippier, the cases of coronavirus ... They have put on the overalls in many parties, in Eibar, in Granada ... yet to discover if he will show any trace of doubt in the remainder of the season. Complicated in the case of the group of a Simeone who will make a change against Levante: Vrsaljko will enter, Llorente will advance his position and Kondogbia will stay out. Above, Correa and Luis Suárez. João Félix, newly incorporated after suffering from covid-19, will travel. The doubt is Felipe or Giménez in the rear. And the roof of Koke is yet to be discovered, who will surpass Tomás with the most games played and only Adelardo will be ahead. I said, today could be a great day for Atlético.
