Simeone turns the eleven and rehearses with João Félix-Luis Suárez

The Atlético coach outlines the team that will go against Real Madrid. With respect to yesterday's test, the Portuguese enters for Saúl. Lemar is now available too.


There are three days left for Atlético-Real Madrid and Simeone continues to test in the eleven. This Wednesday, the novelty was that he hinted that the team can return to the 4-4-2 start. In the last session, he also tried João Félix in attack, a change of plan compared to the previous training session. That of the Portuguese, after his intermittence in recent weeks and his goal celebrated with anger at Villarreal, is the great unknown of the rojiblanca lineup.

In reality, the only change from one essay to another has been João Félix's entry for Saúl, a swap that varies greatly. Marcos Llorente's versatility allows Cholo to make these movements, and even tweak the system during the game. According to this last essay, the 14 would form in the center with Koke. The eleven in question would be with Oblak; Trippier, Savic, Felipe, Hermoso; Correa, Llorente, Koke, Carrasco; Luis Suárez and João Félix, in a 4-4-2 that could mutate without problem in a scheme with defense of three centrals.

There are still two sessions in which Simeone will continue testing, with the idea of playing several games within 90 minutes of the derby. It is already common for the coach to change systems during the matches, he did it in the first round in Valdebebas, and the presence of Carrasco, Llorente, Correa, Hermoso, etc. helps him to do so. Also that of Lemar, who has trained without problems with the group and could also be an option for the eleven. Giménez is the only casualty.
