It’s a must win game for Cholo’s men, but the visitors have enjoyed a successful start to the season with two wins and a draw so far, and proved tough opponents for Atleti last year.

    Now this is what i meant…. Great first half because we are currently playing the players in the positions which would benefit our side in games like these. Well done Cholo this is all I’ve been asking for

    Well done by the entire team and by Simeone with a change in tactics FINALLY. My only issue was the Carrasco sub at half time for Augusto, that really had us look a bit less in control for a while
