The Mexican completed his first league game since December 5, 2020. He paused, started, recovered and improved a Koke in his best performance in time.


Herrera transformed the game of Atletico Madrid

The rojiblanco team had several games without being able to become strong in the middle, without generating football, suffering every pressure from the rival and raffling balls without controlling the times of the matches. The mattress attacks went through long balls to the bands for an individual solution from the extremes and in defense the rivals arrived very loose from the second line. However, with De Paul suspended, Simeone gave Hector Herrera a chance in the engine room and the Mexican showed that he is ready for more minutes. Together with Koke, the ’16’ became strong against Osasuna, calmed down Atletico’s game whenever he had the opportunity and was a constant support for any teammate, giving clarity to possession. Herrera finished with 47 successful passes, by far the most on the team (Koke ​​followed with 36).


The midfielder changed how Atletico dominated Osasuna

If the Mexican player seems like a more offensive court player, last season he already made it clear that he adapts perfectly to that pivot. Against Osasuna he was measured in 19 duels, the one that more than Atleti, left five innings and nine recoveries, again the best of the team in this facet tied with Koke. And it is that the captain was the most from the entry of Herrera in eleven. He was seen as more comfortable, loose to advance meters in the pressure, with a partner with whom to combine at ground level and, after the entry of Kondogbia and Javi Serrano, he rounded off his best performance in a long time with the assist of the goal of the Correa’s ruling. Atletico Madrid is trying to keep up with the main opponents – Sevilla, Real Madrid and Real Betis.
