Majorca424018 Alaves423419 The arrival of Quique Setién to the Barcelona bench has reopened a old debate about the game style. The Cantabrian technician, like Guardiola, It’s one of the followers of Cruyff’s ideology, Prophet of possession. But The defeat of the Catalans against Valencia has increased criticism of this style.In the 21 days spent in LaLiga Santander, the teams that have had the most ball have won only one in three matches. In 62.85% of the games, teams with less possession managed to score. In 72 they took all three points and in 60 they tied.The style of the tiqui-taca, so well received in the last decade (Up to eleven teams were characterized in the 2011-12 season for embracing the possession game, while now only seven remain) is in doubt with the irruption of teams like Getafe, which has taken from Atlético the fourth place, which gives a ticket for the next edition of the Champions League.

The goal in Atlético is a thing of Ángel Correa, leader and talisman

first_imgThe last goal before this Saturday, after staying zero against Leganés and Real Madrid, was Against Cultural: Correa also scored it. The previous one, after two other zeros in front of Eibar and Madrid (Super Cup), was 2-3 at Barça: Correa’s work again. Within the last ten of Atlético has also marked to the east, which was the first of 2020, and to Betis, Just entered the field. That afternoon gave him time to give an assistance to Morata. Also gave goal passes to Saul, against Osasuna, and to Koke, against Barça.Correa’s goals also have an added value for the team: in these five of the streak, the game was tied at the time of the goal. Against Barça he went 2-2 and in the rest of the cases, 0-0. The other target of the Argentine, who has been six in the course, was 1-1 at Espanyol, the first of that comeback (finished 3-1). So far in 2020, without going too far, Atlético has only three wins and in all of them it marked the 10 rojiblanco. Atlético starts in Oblak and, in the most recent stage, It ends in Correa. One does saving stops and the other, decisive goals. The Argentine has become leader of the attack when perhaps he was no longer expected, accustomed to a role of revulsive that had been working, although he was not satisfied. But now A red and white victory is not conceived without their participation. And almost not a goal, because of the last 10 of the team has scored half; and of those who have not, has given assistance in three. It is essential, now more than ever, and without Morata, Diego Costa and João Félix, he has thrown the team behind him.Against Granada, in a match where Atleti lacked lucidity, Correa appeared in the two plays of real danger of the team. In 6 ‘he scored 1-0 at Koke’s pass; in the second half, in a counter, he served as an assist to Saul, whose volley crashed into Aaron. And even almost provokes a Soldier penalty (for Iturralde, AS referee, Soto Grado had to whistle it). This time he had to start as striker with Vitolo, although then he placed himself on the right and had to do a dirtier job that led to him. Simeone extolled the player’s effort: “Beyond the goal, to play better or worse, it will never stop putting heart and we need that.” So they are six goals and as many assists for Angel, the most decisive player in the Atleti attack with Morata, who adds two passes to his ten goals. Without 9, Correa had to be the battering ram, a situation that is increasingly common. The Atleti returned to onecerism and, although Oblak does not yield its share of prominence, in attack he takes the gallons Correa.Correa is a talisman if he scores in the LeagueCorrea’s goals are often accompanied by good news for Atlético. As happened on Saturday against Granada, That mark the Argentine in League is synonymous with victory rojiblanca. He has marked 24 points in the competition in as many games and the team did not lose any: 20 wins and four draws. In Copa, for example, it was not like this: Correa scored in León, but Atlético ended up coming back and removed.last_img read more
