Sevilla vs Atlético has not disappointed anyone. Both teams have given everything and have given us a great match, but it has been the colchoneros, and specifically Simeone, who have won the game. The Argentine coach decided to play with two strikers like Cunha and Morata, knowing that the match would be very physical and there would be few chances. Meanwhile, Sevilla were sorely missing a great scorer who could finish the chances they had.
Simeone had been highly questioned after the latest results, some fans even called for his resignation, so today’s match was vital for the Argentine and he showed that he can’t handle the pressure. The position of coach is complicated because he depends largely on third parties, but his strength is in his ability to motivate the group and read the games and today that factor was differential.
The match against Sevilla was even, the locals in fact controlled possession and came out plugged in, but Atlético did not give in and struck as well. Morata had the first goal in his hands but wasted a great cross, so it was Marcos Llorente who put the rojiblancos ahead in the 29th minute after a good collective play.
Already in the second half and with Sevilla’s physique more diminished, he brought in players with good footing such as Joao Félix and Griezmann, who were able to look fresh in the face of the rival’s loss of intensity. This caused Morata to score the definitive goal that ensured the victory and the position of Simeone, who gained an extra life thanks to his great reading of the game.
