The line-up reflected that the Argentine’s past still stung. Titled team, within the possibilities that the injuries and the coronavirus, allowed. And the duel had little history. The high pressure of the rojiblancos ate a Rayo Majadahonda little used to so much demand. The early injury in Giralt’s hand, after a fortuitous stomp by Suárez, disconnected the ‘locals’.
From a high recovery by Carrasco, Cunha’s goal was born. The Brazilian, with increasing weight within the team, forced the loss that led to 0-2. Lemar spotted Lodi’s run and the side crossed it delicately. Before the break there was even time for Luis Suárez to get wet two months later. Carrasco, who was serving 200 games, launched Llorente and he, again as a right-handed winger, raised the periscope and spotted the Uruguayan ‘Pistolero’.
The mattress soliloquy continued. Simeone did not reserve anything and poured more gasoline on the fire. Precisely two of the revulsive, Correa and Griezmann, were associated in a devilish combination for the 0-4 of the French. The bad news was the withdrawal to the changing rooms of the ‘Little Prince’, who did not end the game due to muscle discomfort.

Despite playing at a disadvantage, Simeone had already exhausted the changes, Atlético rounded off a placid night with the ‘little hand’ by Joao Félix. The Portuguese defined with all the quality that he treasures and shows dropper an individual ride.
