The João Félix factor

No one doubts that the Portuguese will start against Chelsea and Atlético trust his quality to overcome the tie. The messages of encouragement from the club are continuous towards him.


João Félix performed well in the match against Getafe. The Portuguese came out in the second half and Atlético was another team with João Félix entering the field first and then Lemar, Dembélé and Lodi. A team that was close to scoring. The forward did score a goal but it was annulled and on another occasion he shot at goal with great danger. An active João Félix was seen, wanting to have a good game. Atlético is having patience with the young footballer, 21 years old, in his second season in the Madrid entity. Nobody is aware that he is a player with a technical quality above the rest and a footballer who must be decisive in the final stretch of the season.

The dialogue between João Félix and the people of Atlético is constant. Both by the coaching staff and the leaders. The footballer does not lack the affection of all the levels of the club: Simeone, Berta, Miguel Ángel Gil ... Finding the best João Félix continues to be one of Cholo's goals. Against Chelsea, no one doubts that the Portuguese will be in the rojiblanco starting eleven in a match in which Atlético need to win and turn the tie around.

Atletico signed João Félix for matches like this Wednesday, matches against the greats of European football. Simeone will play with the motivation factor to have him in the best conditions against the Premier team.

On the field, João Félix still has a lot to improve, since he is sometimes a bit misplaced, looking for the place where he can do the most damage to his rivals. Luis Suárez is fixed and Correa always performs, scores, gives assists, fights, plays higher or inside ... Cholo appreciates Correa's great work like nobody else.

João Félix, for his part, also sends messages of calm to the club, beyond the anger he showed against Villarreal. He has a contract until 2026 and his room for progression and improvement is enormous. He has scored ten goals and given five assists. They are not great numbers, but neither is his season a failure. It has not yet been as decisive as it could have been, and that it pointed to the beginning of the campaign but it is a rising value. And at Atlético they know it. And comes the match against Chelsea, a game highly anticipated by all. And also by João Félix.
