The Spanish football championship now gives fans the best football experience with maximum level of competition for the title and in other matches a serious fight is also expected among the outsiders. All the teams demonstrate excellent soccer scores today, while only Real Madrid managed to lose just once.
Atletico fans are accustomed to seeing such achievements, but Diego Simeone has not succeeded in setting up defensive football in the new season, and the Matress-Makers’ performance is simply disappointing. The reason for this is a change in the lineup, and at the moment there is no coherence in all the lines. Despite this fact, poor team results also depend on a large number of injuries. Now, the following athletes can’t play:
- Diego Costa;
- Victor Vitolo;
- Stefan Savic.
Only recently, the expensive newcomer Joao Felix, who didn’t reveal the potential due to injury, has finally recovered. But everyone who paid attention to today’s soccer scores of Atletico noticed not the most rational gaming decisions of Diego Simeone.
The Argentinean entrusts attacks to Alvaro Morata and moves Felix to the midfield, closer to attack and the winger position. Perhaps, this decision has influenced the results and personal performance of the young Portuguese player.
Other La Liga results
Atletico’s failures didn’t become a disaster because of the not very confident game of its competitors, so the Mattress-makers are still among the contenders for the champion title. El Classico turned out to be blurred and vaguely resembled a match, which is usually spectacular and amazes the audience with an abundance of exciting moments.
Given the current La Liga results and the power balance of teams in the table, perhaps the head coaches decided not to play openly, because a lot of things are at stake. However, Real still fixated the difference by playing the second match in a row with the 0-0 result. After Barcelona, Madrid will be stoped by their principal rival, Athletic Bilbao.
Seville took advantage of the situation and got close to the second place. The competition between the clubs is enormous, which brings only positive emotions when watching those matches that can change the position of the clubs in the standings.
If you look at the La Liga results of the outsiders, then it’s also not clear. Leganes improved its situation a little, while Espanyol is still not okay. The Catalans showed the worst performance and the entire team scored less than Lionel Messi in Barcelona.
The management plans to actively use the winter transfer window opportunities, because it will take the club a lot of effort to stay in the elite division for next year. In addition to La Liga, Espanyol expects to go as far as possible in the Europa League.
