Last day of the group stage of the Champions League and we go to one of the Spanish teams that plays it, Atlético de Madrid will face Lokomotiv in the Wanda. We will need the mattresses
Group in which the 2nd and 3rd place are still at stake between Atlético de Madrid, which has the advantage with 7 points, and Leverkusen with 6. The leader is Juve with 13 and the colista the Lokomotiv with 3, which although he can Tying Leverkusen loses the average goal so nothing is played. A priori Atlético is a favorite since it is played against the worst team in the group while the Germans face Juve and, depending on itself, should be the 2nd place for them.
Atlético de Madrid is not in a good moment, much less, it is 6th in the Santander League and does not find anything regular, necessary to compete for league titles. In the last 8 games, just 1 win, 4 draws and 3 losses for them. This has caused him to complicate the pass to the round of 16 and be relegated in the league up to 8 points below Barcelona and Madrid in the league (with 1 match more than both). But I hope they get out of the bad run at any time if they manage to fix their main handicap this season that is the goal. Morata has made a solution to solve but the rest of the team does not finish helping. Another of those who should appear is the young Joao Felix, he started the season with very exciting games but remains unregulated in terms of the goal, in addition to an injury in between. Also that great defensive work has been harmed in the mattresses with multiple injuries in the defensive defense.
This match can be a great turning point for them. Victory at home to his people, move on to eighths and clear some doubts. That is why I think he will try to completely dominate an inferior team and with nothing at stake that does not go through its best moment either. Loko is 5th in their league and comes from 1 win, 2 draws and 7 losses in the 10 recent games. In addition the Russian league makes a winter break until March so, with only this inconsequential match, the squad will have the head more in the holidays than in anything else.
In the first leg we saw an ideal result for our interests with a 0-2 victory in a difficult field and now in Wanda, with the environment surrounding the game I think it will be similar or even better for us.
Therefore, Atlético de Madrid must return to good form if they want to fight for titles this season and I think this match will be a change in the mentality of all getting the pass to the round of 16, so I hope you get a victory by scoring 2 or more goals and keeping the goal at 0 to give us the green.
