Atletico Madrid’s plan for each match is usually to play their strongest XI and defeat win in a physically powerful way. Still, such methods can be changed in anticipation of the upcoming meeting of LaLiga with Alaves. With at least four away players in danger of suspension. Koke, Marcos Llorente, Alvaro Morata, and Stefan Savic are all one caution away from a one-match ban. Which will allow them to avoid the expected clash with the LaLiga leaders Barcelona. They are the four fundamental players for Diego Simeone. Especially since Llorente showed his worth as a center forward, while Koke has yet to taste defeat in 2020.

Simeone had previously championed the importance of winning every match this season to qualify for the Champions League. He faces a dilemma regarding the rest of these key players against Alaves and the risk of losing additional points. Most likely, Llorente will be used on the right for now. And his work with the ball could cause real problems for the Blaugrana on their left side. So he would be a severe blunder to Simeone if he were removed. Savic cannot allow him to be left with Felipe absent at that moment, and he was the team’s best defender against Levante, the player who is needed in Catalonia.
