Atlético won Levante and the rojiblanco team won three consecutive victories in the league championship after beating Osasuna, Betis and the Granota team. It is the second time he has achieved it during the campaign. Curiously, in the first three league days he won all three matches. He beat Getafe, Leganés by the minimum and won Eibar 3-2, so he took nine points out of nine possible. On the fourth day he fell in San Sebastian. Since then he had not linked three straight wins. The win against Levante gives air to a team that continues with options, although it is still far from the head. It is located five points from Barcelona and Real Madrid. He’s the worst Atlético with Simeone on the bench, but he’s still hooked on LaLiga. There are many points, but it is not an insurmountable distance. And put to believe and have faith, there is no one more believer than Atlético. Atlético finishes the first league round in third position, with 35 points, tied with Sevilla. That is, it meets the objective set since the beginning of the campaign. The big challenge of each exercise is to finish in the top four classified and play Champions League every year. Regarding points, it is the worst of Cholo, matched with that of two campaigns ago. In exercise 16-17, Atlético finished the first round with 35 points, although with more victories. Now he has nine and then he got ten. In that exercise it was fourth. He won ten games, drew five and lost four. He scored 34 goals and conceded 16. Atlético have won nine, tied eight and have only lost two of the 19 games they have played in this 2019-20 League. He only fell defeated against Real Sociedad and Barcelona. He has marked 22 goals and conceded 12. Morata is the top scorer of the team, with seven goals. Correa, who was almost out in summer, is being decisive. He has scored three goals and given five assists. The problem of the Madrid team in this first round is the large number of matches they have drawn, eight. His lack of successful scorer has weighed his score. The year that Atlético won the title, 2013-14 season, Atlético had 50 points. In six of the 19 games played he did not score. He didn’t score against Real Sociedad, Celta, Real Madrid, Valladolid, Barcelona and Villarreal. In almost a third of the matches did not mark, something improper of a team of the quality of the rojiblanco. And that is giving your rivals too much advantage. Only in seven games (Eibar, Mallorca, Athletic, Espanyol, Osasuna, Betis and Levante) could he score two or more goals. On the other hand, it remains the same reliable team as always. Atletico has only conceded twelve goals and is the one that has received the least, tied with Real Madrid. In a practically new rear, with Trippier, Felipe and Lodi as headlines (and in many days also as Beautiful in the initial eleven), Atlético barely fits. It is what keeps him alive. His defensive system continues to create many problems for his opponents. Simeone is optimistic.Simeone is optimistic about the immediate future, since he has seen improvement in the game. Waiting for Diego Costa to return (he is expected at the end of February), Atlético combs the market in search of a 9. Simeone asked for it months ago, aware that with something more goal Atlético would be really fighting for the championship. Atlético will now focus on the Spanish Supercup dispute, thinking that their worst moments in LaLiga have passed.
