Atletico Madrid dressing room is fighting against the role of favorites
With Diego Simeone, they have always done better when they have the mark of a flaw. So they want it to continue, and that only makes sense.
Atletico aren’t the UCL favorites
Atletico Madrid dressing room is fighting against the role of favorites. With Diego Simeone, they have always done better when they have the mark of a flaw, and they want it to continue, and that only makes sense. A favorable draw, passing by the holders in Liverpool in the next round, surprisingly catapulted Atletico into the favorites. So much so that fans voted that Simeone’s accusations turned out to be the best team to lift the famous trophy, even beating Bayern Munich, Barcelona or Real Madrid. That is surprising. Surprisingly because after the quarterfinals against RB Leipzig. There are three games in which anyone can win the tournament, as Santiago Arias admitted. It is also the RB Leipzig team. This, despite the absence of any real continental pedigree, has already quickly moved past the finalists from 2018/19, Tottenham Hotspur.
Atleti have no players who would threaten PSG team
It seems incredible that people write off the German team, but they are always competing, that’s a guarantee. Surprising, because when you compete against colossal clubs that are accustomed to winning the Champions League. And clubs such as Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich, you cannot be considered the favorite until the start of the match on the service. Also, this team struggled to get into the knockout phase with the results on the last day of the game going in their favor. So they were unable to compete with Real Madrid or Barcelona in LaLiga. Surprisingly, since their triumphant return from the COVID-19 lockdown, Atletico Madrid have no players who would necessarily threaten PSG in the semi-finals if both teams progress. Some seem to forget that Neymar and Kylian Mbappe represent the French club, two of the planet’s greatest players.
That is surprising because the beloved tag never really liked the coaching staff. They enjoyed their most fabulous nights when they were considered the second-best team. That is surprising, in short, because the Atletico have never won a tournament. So yes, the experience is vital, with Los Rojiblancos so close to the trophy on two occasions. The team insists not to fill their backpacks with stones of praise from others because that might make it too heavy to carry.
