Starting XIs

Atlético: Oblak, Juanfran, Godín, Giménez, Gámez, Gabi, Tiago, Koke, Arda, Raúl Jiménez, Fernando Torres



  • I’m excited to see Raúl Jiménez given the opportunity to start up front. It let’s Griezmann have a rest and I guess Mandzukic is injured more than we thought…

  • Kris

    It’ll be very interesting to see both Oblak and Jimenez start on opposite sides of the field. I love this Simeone. Very BOLD. It just would have been better if we had Saul and Oliver available for today after a very exhausting performance from Arda and Like. Let’s see what Jimenez and Torres can provide us today. Just asking for Torres to stop making that very predictable turn with the ball. Aupa Atleti!

  • I hoped and expected a start for Jimenez after an exhausting game vs Bayer and after the start of Cani in the most important game of the season so far, the real Simeone is back, the bold one as Kris said

    But I’m surprised that Griezmann is on the bench while Arda is the one who is starting, the Turk usually needs more time than all his teammates to recover after such demanding games .. I wish he doesn’t pick an injury

    And I would have loved to see Hector on the bench instead of having both Siqueria and Ansaldi, he should have taken the place of one of them

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    Woooo. Excited to see how we will play with this line up

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    Lovely goal we look so sharp

  • Kris

    Wow I like Jimenez a lot so far.

  • Abdil Egriøz

    Nice to see all the chances we’re creating and what a clever assist by Jimenez that was. Without the clumpsy looking situation in our own box, that made our defense look a bit bad it has been very good in the direct play!

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    Thank you for finally giving Jimenez a start Cholo

  • Brad

    I think he got the work ethic message

  • Kris

    There’s still no killer instinct in front of goal though..

  • Kris

    Scoreline could have been wider, but the performance overall was good. I liked it. Just think, we should be burying the chances we have.

  • I think he never missed it .. I think Simeone is the one who got his cojones back, or maybe he did it only because we had a lot of absences
