Atlético: Oblak; Juanfran, Godín, Giménez, Siqueira; Tiago, Koke, Saul, Griezmann; Vietto, Jackson

  • Griezmann Vietto and Jackson has got me all excited!

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    Saul’s long range efforts are getting on my nerves and besides a shaky couple of minutes at the end we look pretty good

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    Not liking the way Saul is playing today

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    Simeone gets on my nerves with this… why tske off Vietto for Gabi? Especially when Saul is havina stinker

  • AaX

    We can see very well what taking pace (Vietto) out for the team and replaced by a def. mid. LESS THREATENING ATLETICO ! And the opponent increase their attack. Bring in Correa. No need to always have Tiago playing full game , Nor theres really the need to get defensive here. Come on Simeone have some ba**s !
