A Champions duel

Atleti receives a Villarreal with whom they always suffer. 27,000 rojiblancos fans have come out to be in the stands. Luis Suárez returns.


For the second time in a week, the Atlético fans will live that routine once again conquered, return to the stadium to see their team. Still with restriction, 40% of the capacity, but be. A hobby that last Sunday was able to do what it had been wanting for a year, receive Suárez as he deserves, amid applause, emotion and dozens of u-ru-gua-yos. Today not only that. Today for the first time this season he will start. And against a rival of those who put you in your place, of those who are so hard to win: Villarreal (follow the game live on As.com) .

Three days ago the two were seeded in the Champions League hype. Today they are measured on the lawn. Putting all your doubts in front of you. Because the season has just begun, and the champion has won his two games, yes, but with shadows in the game, without Simeone having been able to prepare for the summer with the men who are really going to be there. Today yes, today they will be. The tests and cholitos are over. They are all ready.

Simeone will get a gala eleven. With Trippier back in place, Llorente and Lemar with Koke, with Hermoso back, with that forward who will accompany Suárez and has Haaland numbers. Strap. Nine goals in eleven games. Everything that did not go in before, now does not come out. The Argentine is the greatest certainty in these moments of Cholo. As much as Emery knows that Gerard Moreno, the best Spanish striker lately, has a pending account with Atleti: he has never scored on him.Gerard Moreno and the challenges

And he marks all the greats, he always marks, he is differential. The season has not started well, still without a top speed. It is in the facet of the goals where Emery accumulates more doubts: zero leads, zero in two games. Never in his Primera history did he start a season without scoring in the first three matchdays.

But it is that the summer was conditioned by the COVID, three suspended games. But it is that Parejo is injured, and it is his Koke, and Trigueros is not the same. Moi has discomfort and until the end he will not know if he plays or not, like Danjuma, which is the doubt, if he enters or Emery continues with the eleven type: to win the champion again. It wouldn't be the first time.
