Atlético entered the match smug. It’s not clear if it was as a result of rotation honest that Simeone organized, or due to his delay in assimilating the coach’s directions to play with a protection of 5 when Celta attacked and 4 when the offense was his. The preliminary sleepiness of the rojiblancos moved the main target to Ivo Grbic in lower than 5 minutes. Reserved Oblak as a precaution, the Croatian goalkeeper twice prevented Coudet’s crew from getting forward. Grbic needed to cowl up a one-on-one with Larsen after a poor measurement by Hermoso on an extended ball. He didn’t sit effectively with the Madrid central defender with the captain’s armband or occupying the middle of the protection, with Witsel moved to his proper, one other novelty, and Reinildo to his left. Kondogbia, De Paul, Lemar and Correa closed the circle of rotations. Compelled by the calendar, on Tuesday Leverkusen and on Sunday, the derby with Madrid, Simeone turned the eleven the wrong way up. For soccer, he was not convincing, for forcefulness, his resolution was profitable.
Even with the murmur within the stands that Grbic had performed Oblak, Hugo Mallo hit a free header from a nook kick. This time the location was the advantage proven by the Croatian, who had a stellar debut within the League. He pointed to the methods he uncovered in pre-season bowling and justified his return from loaning him to Rennes. Signed in the summertime of 2021, his hiring broke with the coverage of on the lookout for a veteran substitute for Oblak who would settle for the bench because the end result of his profession. The sports activities director, the Italian Andrea Berta, seemed for a progressive goalkeeper profile in case the Slovenian determined to go away or suffered a mishap. Grbic was captured underneath the trendy goalkeeper biotype, tall (1.96 m) and quick in motion. Apparently final night time, evidently the pinnacle of the rojiblancos scouts was proper. The solidity that he confirmed within the aerial balls.
From his saves, Atlético discovered Correa’s definitive spark to culminate a fast yours-mine between Nahuel Molina and De Paul for the squad. Correa often at all times seems, however the effectiveness of that Argentine connection was good for his two compatriots for his or her vanity. The aim hit Celta, who appeared to be misplaced in thought along with his neatness with the ball and bought caught after a shot from the Aspas stick. In 5 minutes he had the sport and began shedding it. He didn’t end profiting from his good manners towards an Atlético that didn’t end feeling snug both. He didn’t endure rather more within the first act, however he transmitted insecurity with the ball. He didn’t discover fluid circulations to the despair of Simeone. Solely an enchancment in competition because the crew adjusted to the alternation of techniques relieved the crew earlier than the primary half.
With Correa’s aim forward, Cholo opted for Koke for Lemar at halftime. He feared that the sport would escape him as a result of lack of consistency that was glimpsed in the midst of the sector and gave the Vallecano flight. This left the ball lifeless to De Paul on the fringe of the field for De Paul to increase the lead with a proper foot that went in after touching a defender. The identical factor occurred to Celta as within the first half. He got here out good-looking and De Paul’s aim despatched him to the canvas. Carrasco, dancing to Hugo Mallo within the space after a dizzying run. Veiga closed the hole, however one other simple counter conceded was not spared by Cunha. He had extra targets than Atlético performed, utilized in that means of fixing video games that he has executed so many occasions within the Simeone period.
