Attilico de MadridTOEl Atltico, without Diego, looks to the runner-up against Celta at risk of relegation
"It's a nice moment to see where the people are, for everyone: players, leaders, us, the technical staff, fans ... to look where we are".Where some see a decaffeinated end of course and a discrete season,Simeone, always Simeone, returns to step out so that absolutely no one loses perspective. Winning all Costa, without and by the demonized Diego, is still the priority of an Attico who, having evaporated the dream of fighting the title of the League, will betray his own values if he loses his arms when he plans the possibility of reissuing a runner-up that , beyond the last course, has only won eight times, the last in the campaign 90-91.
A European title like the Supercopa - for the eternal rival, besides - and a second place in LaLiga could never be considered a failurefor a club that has won seven of the 30 titles of his palmars by the hand of Cholo, even though Girona was the executioner of the Cup or that the illusion to lift the hitherto unattainable Champions in the Metropolitan vanished in the quarterfinals. Hence the call to always keep in mind what the origins have been.
Something that is not laughed withthe growth experienced since Simeone placed the entity at a height where it had never been managed. Hence, the message has multiple recipients. Starting with his players, especially those like Vitolo who still have seven games to claim and demonstrate that their continuity in the project next season will not be under suspicion of not having been immersed in a calvary of injuries. Also facing a test are leaders who are destined to consummate a facelift in the squad during the next summer without the potential being resented. Even to touch measure the response of a perhaps quizzed matador to the successes of the last years.
In case there is any doubt of the meritorious rojiblanco walk, Simeone starts the first of the seven finals in which the ticket is played to the next Spanish Super Cup with what has been a constant for injuries, mainly, and penalties:today he will only have 14 professional players at his disposal, including the hitherto undisclosed Nehun Prez.
Nor is it more halagea la situation of Celtic. With 32 points, seven of them achieved in the last three games, faces the challenge of continuing to add and be able to approach the (longed for) goal of permanence in First. The problem is that we must do it without the great artifice of awakening, a Iago Aspas to which the cards force to rest. Neither is the Dutch center Wesley Hoedt, only available discarded from the list of 19 after his mediocre performance against Huesca.
At the bottom of the franchise player joins thatCelta does not win a league match outside Balados since he did it last December at the Villarreal field. Since then, defeats and two only draws in the visits to Alavs and Huesca, something that does not suppose the best endorsement at the time of presenting before the best place of the championship.
