The kick-off at the Wanda Metropolitano will be delayed a bit. Only now do both teams enter the field.
But he changed his tactics a bit. Instead of 5-3-2, he now relies on a 4-4-2. Carlos Soler is now back in the starting XI. Left-back Toni Lato is also new to the team as Gayà is suspended against Sevilla following his yellow-red card. In addition, Jaume stands in for Cillessen, who is injured, in goal.
On the other hand, Valencia want to close the gap on the hosts. A win would put them just one point behind Atlético. That’s why coach Bordalás wants to add to the 1-1 draw against Sevilla.
That’s why Simeone has made the switch and brings another striker into play in Luis Suárez. In addition, Giménez replaces Felipe Monteiro in central defense and Lemar comes on for Correa. Herrera, on the other hand, only sits on the bench.
Atlético has been waiting for a win for three games. After two defeats in a row, coach Diego Simeone’s team wants to get back on the road to success. The home fans should also be appeased after they threw stones at their bus after the cup was eliminated. So a win is needed, especially since that is also important in the fight for entry into the Champions League.
Hello and welcome to the league match between Atlético Madrid and Valencia CF. Kick-off is at 9 p.m.
