    Las night I assumed that Moya, Savic & Gamez will be on the bench every game -unless if they started- but only the first two are tonight .
    I guess if Simeone needed to replace the RB he will play Savic, and if it’s the LB, Saul can play in that position, that way Simeone has freed one more spot to an attacking player .
    I thought 2 of the 6 of Torres, Vietto, Saul, Raul, Correa & Carrasco won’t make it to the bench, but it’s only Carrasco .
    I love it when El Cholo surprises me .

    The game has a feel of caution to it which is expected but we’re looking good
