Liga BBVA | J14 |Levante vs Club Atlético de Madrid

Atletico take on Levante in the 14th match day of Liga BBVA. After a good showing in their last away match Atletico squandered a good position in their last 2 matches, both at home. The loss to Espanyol at home was bad but the misery was compunded when they lost to Aris with the same score of 2-3 leaving them at the brink of elimination of the Europa League which they won last season.

De Gea and Dominguez were at spotlight in the mid week match for all the wrong reasons as their mistakes allowed the opponent to score the unexpected victory and hand a shock to the Atletico supporters.

Saturday' opponent Levante is sitting 2 places above the relegation spot with 10 points and Atleti would need to pull their socks up and get all the 3 points in this away match to stop this mini slide. Aguero, who obtained Spanish citizenship this week, is lucky enough to avoid any suspension after kicking Luis Garcia last week.

The following players are called up by Quique:
Goalkeepers
13 De Gea
27 Joel

Defenders
2 Valera
3 Antonio López
14 Filipe Luis
15 Godín
17 Ujfalusi
18 Domínguez
21 Perea

Midfielders
4 Mario Suárez
6 Camacho
8 Raúl García
11 Fran Mérida
12 Assunçao
19 Reyes
20 Simão

Strikers
7 Forlán
10 Agüero
22 Diego Costa

I am not expecting any major change or revolution with the line up except that Assuncao should reclaim his place after missing out on the last 3 matches. I believe he was missed in the last 2 matches as his presence provides good cover to the defensive line. Aguero is on a nice scoring spree and one can expect goals to be added to his tally.

The match is at 1800 CET.

The team travelled five hours by bus to Valencia which isn't a good sign as they also played a game on Wednesday.

As for the starting line-up; I don't expect too much changes myself, probably Filipe in Antonio's spot and perhaps Perea instead of Domínguez while Paulo takes Tiago's place in midfield. The rest should be intact, we're not playing bad, we're just finishing horribly and there isn't any mid-week game.

Aupa Atleti !!!!

Yo me voy al Manzanares

los que gustan del futbol de emocion
Porque luchan como hermanos
defendiendo su colores
en un juego noble y sano
derrochando coraje y corazon
Atleti, Atleti, Atletico de Madrid...

Real =

Levante up 1-0 at half time. I did not watch the first half except for the last minute chance for Forlan.

4 minutes into the second half and I can see how bad the team plays. The team is playing in a withdrawn mode and none of the passes from either defence or midfiled is connecting to the forwards.

This is turning out to be an outright bad display. I think something is not right with the players as nobody is putting up any fight for this match.

Do you think that it's possible QQ could get sacked? I know it's only two games, but...

He won't get sacked yet, most likely in the next two if he manages to lose them as well.

The "showing" tonight was simply ridicolous, shithouse. As simple as that. The first shot on goal came on additional time in the first half while the players looked tired and unfocused.

Again the same problem; no one knows how to defend corner kicks. It's starting to look clownish, like it did under Abel Resino.

Btw, the second goal..I just don't know how you manage to fuck up so massively.

I was amused to see the team awakening in the last 5 minutes and nothing was done earlier in the match. Either the team is physically not fit or it has to do something with the mind.
