Atlético needs to recover the wall over Oblak’s goal

first_imgOf course, in between the current situation, Liverpool visited the Wanda Metropolitano as one of the teams with a most fearsome attack in the world and he left without finishing goal in the whole game, with a 1-0 red and white advantage for the return. And the best way to recover solvency back before visiting Anfield, it does not fit against Sevilla, a direct rival for the Champions League. A visiting victory would be a very hard blow in the fight for the positions that give access to the maximum European competition next season. The Andalusian team has two points ahead of Atlético and those of Simeone only think of the victory that supposes to surpass the table to Sevilla and to win the golaverage after the tie of the first leg. Leaving the door to zero would be the first sign that something has been done well in the game, in addition to lead the 100th match of Oblak without fitting into the competition. The goal has seen as the possibility of fight Zamora, goalkeeper prize with the best score conceded in the league, and that has taken over the past four seasons, this course has been complicated. The Slovenian has 19 goals received in 26 games (0.73 per game), while Thibaut Courtois has conceded 14 in 23 games at Real Madrid (0.6). The Belgian already took the prize twice during his time at Atlético. A difficult mission for the goal rojiblanco, but not impossible, if Oblak returns to add parties and games with goal to zero. It is not usual to see the Slovenian goal receive a goal during several consecutive games. Since its rise to ownership in 2015, Oblak has become an almost insurmountable wall. In the 179 league games he has played, he has conceded 113 goals (0.63 per game) and has been unbeaten 99 times. Among all competitions his figures as athletic are 243 games played, 164 goals conceded (0.67 per game) and 133 goals to zero. But during this season, where the team has suffered many casualties back (Juanfran, Godín, Lucas, Filipe), had already suffered a streak of seven straight games receiving goal (Alavés, Sevilla, Bayer Leverkusen, Espanyol, Granada, Juventus and Barcelona). Atlético has seen how His strength over Jan Oblak’s goal has weakened in recent weeks. The rojiblanco team has fit in the last three league games, four goals against him that cost him two draws away from home when he had managed to do what he was most aware of the mattress set during this season: see door.Atlético stood 0-1 and 1-2 in Mestalla against Valencia, but the stopped ball cost him two points with goals from Gabriel and Kondogbia (2-2). In Villarreal’s visit to the Metropolitan, Alcácer advanced the yellow submarine with a great shot from outside the area, but Atlético was able to overcome thanks to the goals of Correa, Koke and João Félix. Finally, Espanyol, competition’s colista, marked through a center that Savic introduced on his goal, so much that Saul matched in the second half. last_img read more
