The rojiblanco team visits Mendizorroza this Saturday for the seventh day of LaLiga. With 14 points out of 21 possible, he will continue to hunt for a Real Madrid that has 16 at the top of the table.
Diego Pablo Simeone will not be able to count on Jorge “Koke” Resurrección, Thomas Lemar or Joao Félix for the fight against the bottom player, who only adds defeats at the start of the season. We believe that the Argentine will opt again for a 1-3-1-4-2, after suffering a lot in Getafe, and that the chosen ones will be the following:
The Slovenian goalkeeper is the undisputed starter under sticks except for injury, penalty or force majeure. He has played every minute so far this season and has even worn the bracelet in the last two, being one more incentive to believe in his presence at the start.
The Madrid defender was the victim in the change of system (1-4-4-2) in Getafe, playing for about half an hour when he was starting. Logic invites us to think that Diego Pablo Simeone will not repeat despite the victory and that we will see him again from the beginning.
The Uruguayan center-back has been a starter in all the games he has played this season, missing the visit to RCD Espanyol, where he spent the entire match on the bench. It would be surprising if he did not play from the beginning in Mendizorroza.
The Montenegrin defender has played every minute in LaLiga, resting in the Champions League against Porto. Diego Pablo Simeone’s confidence in him has been showing for a long time.
The injuries of Jorge “Koke” Resurrección and Geoffrey Kondogbia allowed the Mexican to have a hole as a pivot, something that we believe will continue as long as the Madrid player is absent and the Franco-Central African regains his rhythm.
The Belgian attacker has played as a center forward, left winger and lane on that same side. In the case of correcting our hypothesis, we believe that the Argentine coach will choose him on the left-handed flank as a lane to open and stretch the team.
The Madrid midfielder has played as a right lane and in more advanced and positional positions in the midfield. We believe that it will act as a surprise factor behind the two forwards, trying to come from the second row.
The Argentine midfielder comes from being a substitute in Getafe and giving the team another face since he left the bench. If we add that he was a substitute and missed a match between the most recent, we conclude that he is fresh to start.
The winger and right winger adds four consecutive titles in LaLiga after starting the course from the bench. We believe that Diego Pablo Simeone will continue to give him continuity so that he creates danger from the side thanks to his precision.
The French attacker has started all three LaLiga games with Atlético de Madrid since he returned. They have yet to score again with the red-and-white elastic, something that they have not yet been able to do.
The Uruguayan striker comes from giving the victory with two goals in the final stretch of the stake in Getafe and started from the bench in Bilbao, with which are reasons enough to believe that he will start from the beginning between the break and the reward.
