PART ONE | THE ATLÉTICO DE MADRID STARTS - GIRONA OF THE LEAGUE IN THE METROPOLITAN
The players of this
Atlético de Madrid - Girona to the Metropolitan Wanda.
The Galician referee, Iglesias Villanueva, is in charge of refereeing this match in the Metropolitano between
Atlético - Girona.
A Girona arrives at the Metropolitan Wanda today, who was a hangman in Copa, whom Atleti never managed to win yet.
Atlético de Madrid and Girona they have five consecutive matches tied: 2-2 (August 19, 2017), 1-1 (January 20, 2018), 1-1 (December 2, 2018), 1-1 (January 9, 2019) and 3-3 (January 16, 2019). The last two corresponded to the elimination of Copa del Rey this season, in which Atletico Madrid was eliminated.
After overcoming a ten-day streak without winning, the Catalan club reactivated in time to avoid serious problems and right now occupies the thirteenth position with a six-point income on the decline, so he still has to 'row' on this straight end of season to ensure a third consecutive year in first.
However, the most important drop is that of
Girona, who can not count on a muscle overload with Cristhian Stuani, third highest scorer of the championship (17) only behind the Barça players Leo Messi and Luis Suarez, and was key in the assault butler Wanda Metropolitan.
Diego Costa, author of a great goal in Vitoria, again suffered physical problems and will not be before the redheads, like Thomas Lemar and Santiago Arias. In exchange, Simeone recovers Rodrigo Hernández, once his sanction has been completed.
Atlético de Madrid - Girona: The last win in the field of Alavés (0-4) relieved the situation of the team 'mattress', also by the news that came from the offices, with the confirmation that Lucas Hernandez will not wear the red and white shirt after signing for the Bayern and go through the operating room to solve their knee problems.
Griezmann will be leading the attack rojiblanco with Morata, in a key game for their numbers. If he does not score, 7 will equal his worst run as Atletico
Atlético de Madrid - Girona: The tie in the round of eighth finals (3-3), with a goal 'in extremis' by Borja García, left Atlético out of the first title of the season. Then came the Turin debacle and Diego Pablo Simeone is still immersed in the mission of strengthening the morale of its staff.
In order to keep his lifeline intact, the Atletico team knows that it is obliged to break its bad faith on Tuesday.
Girona, a team that has never managed to win since it broke into the top category of Spanish football and, to top it all, was its executioner in the current Copa del Rey.
Atlético de Madrid - Girona: With nine games to go, Atletico continues to ten points from Barça and at the expense of the key duel that awaits next Saturday at the Camp Nou, where a local victory would liquidate the title, but a visiting triumph would open the fight and inject emotion into the last journeys.
We already know the
ALIGNMENT OF THE GIRONA: Iraizoz, Pedro Porro, Bernardo, Alcalá, Muniesa, Pere Pons, Aleix Garcia, Douglas, Borja García, Portu and Doumbia.
We already know the
ALIGNMENT OF THE ATHLETIC: Oblak; Arias, Giménez, Godín, Filipe; Koke, Rodrigo, Thomas, Saúl; Griezmann and Morata.
