Atlético de Madrid is much more than Luis Suárez and the colchoneros will receive Barça with more enthusiasm than ever. The Uruguayan will not play for coronavirus, but they will be Joao Félix, Correa or Marcos Llorente
The Athletic of Madrid receives this Saturday to the FC Barcelona in Wanda Metropolitan without his maximum goleador. Luis Suárez will not be able to confront to his ex team by fault of the coronavirus and will be the most sensitive drop of the colchoneros for this interesting duel. The '9' arrived with many win of revancha, but will have to expect to the second turn, and the Cholo Simeone will have to give with a solution to substitute him.
But the culé that think that the danger of the Atleti without the one of Jump goes to be a lot of minor makes a mistake, since the forward is not neither much less the only weapon that have the rojiblancos. There is a footballer that stands out above the rest in this team and is not precisely the Uruguayan. It treats of a Portuguese of so alone 21 born years in Viseu that calls Joao Félix.
The ex of the Benfica is the offensive leader of the ones of Simeone from the beginning of this campaign and is showing it split after party. The '7' will be a quebredero of head for all the Barcelona defence and will use his grandísima quality, his mobility and his vision of game to try that the Barça leave points in his visit to the Spanish capital. The luso is very in shape in these moments and it will be necessary to loan him more attention that never.
Joao Félix can do it almost all and this is to what goes to have to confront the Barça. It is a totacante that with ball is a delight, but that also moves well without her and that has a big change of rhythm to the hour to look for the disequilibrium. Around him it would have to turn the Athletic, but to his side will have to several players that will do him simpler the work, especially in a day in which it will not be his companion up.
In the centre of the field will be Koke and Saúl Ñíguez, that will facilitate him receive in positions of attack. On the other hand, in bands will be Yannick Ferreira Carrasco, recently recovered of his injury, and Marcos Llorente, the big disclosure of the end of the past course and of this principle of season. The Belgian is a fast extreme, with dribbling and that will complicate the life to Sergi Roberto or Sergiño Dest, whereas the Spanish will use his arrival, intelligence, physicist and speed to hurt by the right.
Correa will accompany to Joao up
Besides, up probably also it will be Ángel Correa, very in shape before the stop. The Argentinian will accompany to Joao Félix and will try to use his speed and desborde in front of the saga blaugrana. With him, Llorente and Carrasco running, and the Portuguese launching, the contras colchoneras will be a tremendo danger that the Barcelona will have to control. It will be a very complicated duel in spite of the absence of Suárez and will carry it to him the one who less errors commit and the one who better know desarticular the arms of the rival.
