The Atlético de Madrid reinforces his attack with the return of the Uruguayan forward Luis Suarez, already recovered from the coronavirus, to receive this Saturday Real Valladolid,Real Valladolid a rival that fights in the lower zone of the table for one more season, but has improved significantly in recent weeks after a poor start.
Suárez was infected in the last international break with Uruguay, just like his teammate Lucas Torreira, and his team has clearly noticed it, to the point that they have barely managed to score three goals in their last four games. However, his proverbial defensive strength has kept him from defeat.
The striker has already returned to training with his teammates and this Saturday he could share the point of the attack with Joao Félix, who will surely appreciate the presence of a more classic ‘9’ to exploit his characteristics. It is also possible that Diego Simeone will start with Suárez on the bench and dose his return in view of the very important week that he awaits later.
And is that Atlético his European future will be played to a card on Wednesday in Salzburg, where he will seek the knockout stages of the Champions League, and the following weekend he will be measured with the Real Madrid in a derby in which he can leave his neighbor very “touched” in the fight for the national title.
For its part, Valladolid arrives at its best moment of the season, after a bad start that even made them fear for the position of their coach Sergio González, since the Pucelano team fell to the red lantern after not adding a victory in the first eight days.
However, the team has reacted in time to calm the situation of its coach and has added seven points from the last nine possible after beating Athletic and Pomegranate and draw in the last game against Levante. These results have allowed him to leave the relegation zone, although he is tied on points with Celta, who are third to last.
Levante and Getafe fight to smile again
The I raised and the Getafe will confront this Saturday in the Ciutat de València their need to add three points again and end their respective losing streaks, in a match corresponding to the twelfth day of The league Santander.
The ‘granotas’ and the ‘azulones’ will see their faces plunged into a bad moment and without much time without finishing a game with a smile, much greater in the case of Paco López’s, who have only won one game this year , in El Sadar and for more than two months. Those of José Bordalás are not fine either, precisely since they managed to beat Getafe 1-0 on October 17.
From those respective successes, the Valencian team has only been able to add five of the next 24, all of them in the form of five consecutive draws to a goal that have prevented him from leaving the descent that he continues to occupy and hopes to leave, while the Madrid has scratched three of the next fifteen and needs the victory to not disengage from the upper zone of the classification, although it has not done it in the fief of Orriols in the last three years.
The locals have good and bad news, Since the return of goalkeeper Aitor Fernández joins the muscular injury of an important man in the spinal cord as Campaña in a team that could play with three centrals, while the visitors seem to finally be able to count on Damián Suárez and Maksimovic for an eleven where Ángel, el ‘Cucho’ Hernández and Jaime Mata could meet.
