Muscle Injuries Common in Atlético de Madrid

Muscle Injuries Common in Atlético de Madrid

Muscle injuries are becoming, in recent weeks, the true cross of Atlético. Giménez, Savic, Cunha, Marcos Llorente … and Lemar. Ailments, mostly in the thigh, which are penalizing the rojiblancos both in defense (Simeone was forced to return to the defense of four against Real Sociedad) and in the spinal cord, where the Frenchman’s last injury makes him jump for the airs the engine room.
And is that Lemar is the latest victim of a plague in which the Frenchman was already immersed after falling in front of Porto. He missed three duels and a few weeks later he suffered again, now against Real Sociedad, an ailment that will keep him out for several weeks. A fundamental loss once the French international has become a holder for Simeone.

A fundamental loss once the French international has become a holder for Simeone.
In fact, the core that started as untouchable at the beginning of this season was made up of Lemar, Koke … and Marcos Llorente. Precisely the 14 is the other half that has fallen, and in its case relapsed, to be low the next parties. From Madrid and the current importance of him in the Simeone team, everything is told. Although his numbers this year are not those of last year, Llorente is still vital as an interior, winger or even right-back.
Hence, Atlético has broken down the middle. Hence, it is the turn of other footballers who, like De Paul, acquire vital importance. The Argentine has not quite reached the level of his or Udinese’s selection, but he is a vital player now with Lemar and Llorente out due to injury. So should Kondogbia and Herrera, two media that Simeone trusts to solve the problem in midfield.
A drama in the Anfield final
In just a week, Atlético will face a final in Liverpool. The defeat at home against Klopp’s men compromises the classification to the second round, but Cholo’s men will almost certainly go to Anfield without Lemar, Llorente and the suspended Savic and Griezmann. Four pillars that the Argentine will not be able to count on for a duel that seems vital.
