After a good run, Atletico Madrid lost important points. Although the team is in the first position of La Liga, experts believe that Barca and RM still have chances for championship.
Good attacking line from Diego Simeone
First of all, Luis Suarez is in perfect form. He can’t stop scoring and he proved that age is just a number yesterday night. Atletico Madrid’s striker scored two goals against Celta Vigo but it was not enough. Diego Simeone started the match with a very interesting line-up. Luis Suarez was not the only striker in the penalty area. He was partnering up with another striker – Correa. Two strikers were doing everything to press on defense of Celta Vigo. Lodi and Lorrente were playing as the wingers on the opposite wings. Saul and Koke were playing from the deep midfield and still, they were close to Correa and Luis Suarez. There was only one midfield left – Kondogbia. His main goal was helping three defenders of Atletico Madrid. It was a very interesting line-up as Simeone never risked before with that strategy, especially at home stadium.
Two goals from Luis Suarez was not enough
Atletico Madrid was in need of three points. Suarez’ team won eight matches in a row in La Liga tournament. After a loss from Real Madrid, Atletico was in a perfect run. What happened with the team on Monday night? Fans are still questioning the strategy Diego Simeone used to play against Celta Vigo.
Santi Mina opened the score-line in the first half. He scored a goal in the 13th minute and gave a lead to Celta. Luis Suarez scored an equalizer at the end of the first half. Atletico Madrid was trying hard in the first half and they could score a goal in the last minute of the first half. The coach of Atletico tried to change everything in the dressing room. He made two replacements and Atletico attacked differently. Luis Suarez scored his second goal in the 50th minute. After Luis’ brace, Atletico have not attacked properly and maybe it was a problem of mental concentration. Madrid players believed that three points were already in their pocket. Unfortunately to Atletico fans, Ferreyra scored a late goal. Celta Vigo took a point from Madrid.
