Despite the presence of Luis Suárez, Atlético Madrid cannot beat Huesca



Diego Simeone’s team is going for their second consecutive victory against a newly promoted who needs to win to get out of the bottom zone. Televisa DirecTV Sports.

There is no pause for Atlético de Madrid, which, three days after the perfect debut with Granada 6-1, measures its ambition and its reality in Huesca, where it goes with all the potential that Luis Suárez, Joao Félix and Diego Costa.

However, of their 19 away games throughout the last league, Atlético won only six. He only lost three but accumulated ten draws, several of them due to speculation or lack of ambition. The balance of points was inappropriate for his level: 28 out of 57. He did not add even half. And 14 of them got them after the break.

In 2018-19, Atlético was left without options to compete for the League because it was a minor visitor, who did not even reach half of the points in a dispute outside their stadium. Also 28 of 57. That is, of his last 38 outings in the league, he only won thirteen.

The mattress set must show a plus to not only win at home but outside of it. This will be a development of the tournament that will demand much more from the Madrid team, but it has a team and players for it, even more with the signing of Luis Suárez.

The presentation of the Uruguayan was formidable. Two goals and an assist in 20 minutes, when he came in from the bench for Diego Costa. In Huesca, foreseeably, the roles will change: the holder will be the Uruguayan attacker and the substitute the Hispanic-Brazilian, who declared himself available to the club to stay or leave in this transfer period, while Edinson Cavani still appears as a possibility.

“Costa and Suárez can also start together. Or Costa or Suárez starting. In the 90 minutes I imagine that they will play together or separately, ” Simeone doubted about the ‘9’ in Huesca, where the other forward position will be for Joao Félix, finally reaffirmed at 6-1 at Granada as what it is: a phenomenal footballer.

Opposite, the Sociedad Deportiva Huesca wants to prolong the improvement and good image that it left last day at Mestalla, against Valencia, surprising Atlético de Madrid.

The Alto Aragonese team has given good sensations away from home in the games they played against Villarreal and Valencia, which both ended in a draw, and now they want to capture it with a victory at El Alcoraz to climb positions in the standings, although they will face one of the contenders for the league title.

The Huesca team hopes to add their first win of the season to be able to climb positions and not be relegated to the lower zone, although they are aware of the condition of favorite of the mattress team against which it will be important not to lose the ball at the beginning of the plays since the whole of the ‘Cholo’ Simeone has a great danger when he steals balls in the vicinity of the area.
