LA LIGA:SEVILLA VS ATLETICO DE MADRID

Atletico Madrid in the space of a month have played so badly that they have seen their lead at the top chopped down from 10 points at one point to 1 point (if Barca wins today against Valladolid). The defensive, low block counterattacking style has been figured out already Diego Simeone. Time to change tactics.Continue reading “LA LIGA:SEVILLA VS ATLETICO DE MADRID”

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE:CHELSEA VS ATLETICO DE MADRID

Chelsea’s counter attacking flair shone through at Stamford Bridge as they reach the last 8 at the expense of Diego Simeone’s men.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE:ATLETICO DE MADRID VS CHELSEA

Look, I do not understand the logic of making a team play away in the so called “home” games. I understand there is a pandemic and there are travel restrictions in certain countries. But it just seems unsporting to make from Spain play a “home” game in Romania. I mean what happened to home townContinue reading “CHAMPIONS LEAGUE:ATLETICO DE MADRID VS CHELSEA”

With one derby ending in a stalemate in England,the earlier one in Madrid ended in favour of the Los Blancos. The Atleti defence which does not give away goals like Santa Claus gives presents was surprisingly leaky.

ATLETICO DE MADRID VS FC BARCELONA

Barca’s inconsistent start to this season’s campaign continued with a loss at the Wanda Metropolitano. Just like Ederson of Man City the keeper made a blunder and came out (way out) of his box to try to cut off the angle. Yannick Carrasco did a Son and passed the ball into the net through TerContinue reading “ATLETICO DE MADRID VS FC BARCELONA”
