    For the first time I see Savic that much BAD!

    besides some of the more apparent mistakes (Correa, Godic), I thought we would control the midfield more at this stage.

    Dear Simeone
    Football is not starting with 4 DMs home against Alaves nor start with 4 forwards away against Sevilla…. please tailor your approach!!

  • Zinni DUDU

    Well Sevilla is a great team and loosing against them in their stadium is not a big shame.
    For me Correa ist not a winger so playing him on the right wing is not maybe the right way; for this position Gaitan should be preferred. I think Correa likes to play as a second striker (the griezmann role). Taking of Carrasco for Tiago in Minute 57 was for me to early, becauce he was our guy in the last few games and our best player in october.
    And I would also agree “atleti lover” playing against a strong and fighting team like Sevilla needs a stronger midfield so Saul or Tiago (i would prefer Saul).

    I´m also now affraid that cholo will give up completly on his ofensiv philosophie of the last few games and will start playing with 4 midfielders:(
