Koke and twelve more – AS.com

first_imgToday Simeone goes out with Koke and ten more. Or better: Koke and twelve other first team field players, what does he have. Thirteen and two goalkeepers. Complete the list three soccer players of B. The injuries again, all accumulated in the same section of the season. Seven (Trippier, Arias, Giménez, Herrera, João, Morata and Costa) plus Felipe, down by penalty. And in front of Granada, another one of those teams that Cholo has a hard time winning, so identical: intense and with a lot of pressure, to wait back and the ball stopped. But today is of mortal necessity. Win back. Atletico is out of the Champions League positions, it is 6th, and in two games who is Liverpool.A Granada Cup semifinalistToday a Cup semifinalist Granada does and maybe with his head there, more in the game during the week than this one on Saturday. Diego Martínez, who in the first round already started a draw to Atleti in Los Cármenes, will make rotations, such as Foulquier by Neva on the side. The loss of Gonalons, overload, is important. He already lacks Montoro. In the center will enter Eteki or maybe Azeez. Above, Soldier, reinforced by his two goals in the Valencia Cup, and his forward-feeling of the season, Carlos Fernández.Follow Vrsaljko, come back Beautiful that whenever he played he did well, Simeone doubted between two men: if you start Saponjic at the top or that Correa and Llorente play above do it in the middle. I’ll bet on the latter, it seems. In this match where he already walks without a net. But with Koke back. The days are finally over without him. And Koke in the field improves everything. The torture of days without Koke is over. Those full of blows. With defeats, frustrations, the parties whose points stopped counting three by three. Without Koke, Atlético has not won in a month, the Copa del Rey was left in León and the Spanish Super Cup on penalties against Madrid. Without Koke, defeat at Ipurua, defeat at the Bernabéu and draw with Leganés at the Metropolitan. Without Koke deepens the lack of goal (two in five games) and preparation in the center.But today Koke returns, the captain to his place and the bracelet to his arm. When it may not be noticed, even if it is always the one that runs the most, the one that wears the most, but alas when he is not there, there is no footballer whose absence is accused more. There are the numbers. And they scream.last_img read more
