Correa entered in the 58th minute of the match against Feyenoord and had his first preseason minutes. The Argentine joined the rojiblanca discipline on day 2 and Cholo wanted to give him a little more than half an hour before the start of the League. He replaced Giuliano, as willful as ever, although less showy than in other games.
Correa fought, fought, he found himself very alone at the attack point, but that mattered little to the Atlético striker, who begins this exercise as the past ended: scoring goals. His was Atlético’s goal against Feyenoord. He had a first chance, but his pitch went very weak. And he did not fail in the second, when he was alone in front of the rival goal after an assist from Arias. Then he got his team out of trouble and scored the tie, broken on the last play of the clash. Moments before the goal, Camello had not taken the opportunity to score, assisted by Correa.
Possible ownership in Vigo
The Argentine is a blessing for Cholo, who could put him on top in his debut against Celta. The coach has problems in attack, since Luis Suárez has barely had a week of training and Simeone does not want to force him in these first matches. And he could trust everything to the Correa-Marcos Llorente duo, with Giuliano as an alternative. Atlético is not very much on goal, very failing in this sense in the first half against Feyenoord, and Correa gives him an energy and a spark in offensive tasks that his team needs.
The player has an important weight in the team, he feels valued by his teammates and it shows even in friendly matches. At the moment, he has a week to acquire a little more physical tone for the Vigo league clash. But that Correa continues to see the door is one of the best news Atlético in the meeting in the Netherlands.
