Even his fatal visit to Vitoria, Atlético had lived accustomed to avoiding his tragic destiny with sweet and sharpened last-minute lounges. With dessert feats that until not long ago he used to suffer in his own meats. He had turned the adrenaline routine routines. That Mandi with the team almost without life. Or the whiplash of Lemar, after an addition of 10 minutes before Espanyol. Or, without going so far, the shock-up before Getafe, with the double of Luis Suárez.
Last minute handles for sins committed when the team seems to have the head elsewhere. Before the Alavés, the slip was Savic. This time nobody, not even Simeone, with the classic coup stroke of him, was able to rebelliate the afternoon. Rojiblancos show some new sins in this start of season.
"There are bad moments during the season and possibly going through one of those moments of difficulty," Simeone recognized, after the first defeat of the season. The first slip in League after 11 matches followed without knowing the defeat. Thanks to that streak, they tied the title a few months ago.
In this harsh dawn of athletic, we have seen improper errors of a traditionally armored staple. For example, on that night before the Villarreal, which led to the involuntary Head of Savior of Mandi. Savic and Giménez became a mess in the 0-1 and trigueros ended up penalizing them. Cracks has been in a large part of the matches of this course. Included at 0-0 before Athletic, last week, where Villalibre and Iñaki Williams became cited with Oblak. It does not matter who was going to command the wall or that there were two or three centrals. "I do not think it's because of the system, it can be for concentration," Simeone insisted.
For the reason it is, the rojiblancos have embedded six goals in their first seven stages. Last season, they had only received two. "We have embedded the goal very fast, for a ruling ours and is happening too much, we have to enter the party with more personality," did Oblak claimed, little accustomed to these figures against and negative protagonist at the same time he received his team before him Getafe.
And it is that Atlético has been solving its ailments behind with drops of epic. In Mendizorroza, however, it was not enough to use all the dynamite cartridges. Those of Simeone only launched once between the three sticks. Of the 17 goals at this point of last year's competition, at nine of this. And all despite the arrival of Griezmann, called to complete the team's scoring level leap. For now, nothing further away. On the contrary. His team has been unable to march with him on the lawn. In total, 305 minutes distributed in five meetings. At the moment, Antoine is no solution.Updated Date: 25 September 2021, 16:19
