Koke revitalizes Atlético

first_imgAtlético returned to the path of triumph coinciding with Koke’s return. The captain was lost five games since its last appearance in the Spanish Super Cup, with Barcelona goal included, and the team’s balance had been one draw and four losses, one of them on penalties in the final of the tournament in Arabia. It took Koke five minutes to show his importance in the team giving Correa assistance for the goal that ultimately would give Atlético three points against Granada. He received a throw-in from Saul in the area and left the free ball for the shot of the Argentine against Aaron. His 68th goal pass in the last ten seasons in the League, only improved by Messi (133) and Benzema (75). The captain participated a lot in the game in a position that Simeone has exploded little lately, that of midpoint behind the two strikers, Correa and Vitolo, forming a rhombus in the center of the field. The ‘6’ was located in the upper vertex, with Thomas pivot, Llorente fallen to the right and Saul to the left, something that favored his participation with the ball in the hot meters. In defense he passed the double pivot with Thomas, delaying his position to contribute to the recovery. A facet where it went The best team with nine steals. Koke was omnipresent while his gas lasted, coming into play by falling to the left, the profile he likes most, right to help Llorente and showing each time he had the option to come into play. That participatory and involved soccer player who has not had a substitute during his absence due to injury, someone who offers and is a support for the teammate is more or less successful later. He also pulled gallons to reinstate a lost character in the team, something that led him to see the yellow card for claiming a soldier elbow on Saul and its subsequent recrimination to the rojiblanco player. Koke reprimanded his attitude at nine and ended up admonished, but without letting the tip try to scare a partner. With the passing of the minutes the midfielder began to notice the inactivity, appearing with less continuity in the space of time where Atlético was going back meters and losing weight in the match. Despite this finished with 47 passes completed of 52 attempts (90.4% of success). A player who is capital for Simeone and who has missed the Argentine coach so much during his absence. Koke is back and with him the triumphs returned.last_img
