The rojiblanco team has accustomed its fans to show a face as a local and a very different one when playing as a visitor, where the last sample arrived in Ipurua in his 2-0 defeat against Eibar. Not counting the matches in neutral field, with the Spanish Supercup in Arabia or the European Supercup in Tallinn in 2018, in what course of course Atletico has played 13 games away from home and has only been able to win in four. He did it in Butarque before the Leganés (0-1), in Mallorca (0-2), in Moscow against Lokomotiv (0-2) and in Benito Villamarín against Betis (1-2). However, the team version has tended to be gray, tying five games (Valladolid, Alavés, Sevilla and Granada) and falling defeated in four others, two of them in the Champions League, against Bayer Leverkusen (2-1) and Juventus (1-0). The others were against Real Sociedad (2-0) and Eibar (2-0) for a balance of 11 goals in favor and 11 against (less than one per game in each case). Atlético as a visitorcenter_img But the problem as a visitor comes from afar. In the whole last season Simeone’s team won nine games of 25 (Monaco, Getafe, Sant Andreu, Valladolid, Huesca, Real Sociedad, Alavés and Eibar), so that the balance in the last year and a half is 13 wins in 41 visitor meetings. In 2018-19, the nine wins were accompanied by nine draws and seven defeats (Celtic, Borusia Dortmund, Betis, Juventus, Athletic, Barcelona and Espanyol). Mainly painful was the match in Turin, where Atlético was traveling with a 2-0 in favor of the first leg and fell 3-0 with a Cristiano hat-trick in a completely inoperative encounter of the worst Athletic in a long time. The course was over with 27 goals scored and 28 received. Total1314eleven3839 The team decays without its people on top, without that focus of encouragement that the mattress hobby in the Metropolitan Wanda supposes. Many of his problems outside are due to go wrong in the matches, to the team lacks the necessary intensity to measure ultramotivated rivals like Eibar last Saturday. Many early times lost, without performance and without results that suppose a very important slab to fight for LaLiga and that have been decisive in the Champions League, where in the last season the elimination was forged and this course for the moment has cost the second place of the group, in the end very influential after the draw left Liverpool. In the historic 2013-14 season, Atlético won 19 of the 31 games he played as a visitor (54.3%), figure that contrasts with 31.7% of the successes harvested in the last year and a half. Atlético visit in the coming months Santiago Bernabéu, Camp Nou and Mestalla in Liga and Anfield in Champions, so you should put the batteries away from home and start competing from the first moment for the games, since nobody gives anything away. The next visitor appointment, on Thursday before the Cultural Leonesa in a Copa del Rey single game where there are many illusions and there is no failure option, since a prick sends you home.last_img read more
