To a complicated duel, important absences are added. Atlético de Madrid will hit Villarreal this Sunday and will not be able to count on Antoine Griezmann who relapsed from his muscular injury against Rayo Majadahonda at the Wanda Metropolitano, as happened this season to Thomas Lemar and Marcos Llorente; a situation that “worries and occupies” Diego Simeone.

“It worries me, it occupies me and we will try to find solutions because, obviously, it is not normal for the relapses to be three of those that were”, remarked the coach, who loses for at least the next three weeks to Griezmann, whose reappearance last Thursday from the muscle injury suffered on December 12 lasted only 19 minutes.

The French striker is one of the four casualties with which Simeone faces the challenge this Sunday at the Estadio de la Cerámica in Vila-real. The other three are Stefan Savic, who has been out for five weeks due to a muscle injury; José María Giménez and Luis Suárez, the latter two due to a penalty for a cycle of five yellow cards.

Atlético de Madrid has been recovering its good streak in matches, to which the Argentine DT indicated that “it is always soon to definitely appreciate something. Yes, good things have been shown in these last two games. The presence of Carrasco on the right, who, although he has always had a tendency to play on the left, on the right generates breadth and depth to take advantage of the strikers we have above all. And then the condition of the team, which is accommodating as it is adjusting well now in the last two games to this performance “.

But I absolutely do not put aside the previous system (5-3-2), which gave us many successes, we were champions and we competed very well. And we have the footballers tomorrow, if Vrsaljko starts as third (right central) to play with Llorente on the one hand and Carrasco on the other “added the ‘Cholo’.

Diego Simeone gave his opinion on what the Villarreal game will mean: “He has a great coach. His team, beyond winning or losing, always competes, plays well, attacks and defends well, is organized, knows how to attack, knows how to defend, causes errors every game, causes you to go out so that they generate spaces. I really like how Villarreal plays ”.
