The main emphasis was on the right side because Filipe Luís had decided to take an early vacation. Easily his worst game in ages for Atlético in terms of defending, both collectively and individually. He didn't even make up for it with his runs and combination play upfront which forced Juanfran to step up big time yesterday. The whole team as a unit started incredibly slow, just like they did against Valencia which ultimately was a huge issue half-way through the first half.
Gabi didn't get two assists, he got one. Juanfran got the other one and he also fixed the penalty. Gabi is the heart and soul of this Atleti-team though because of his positional sense, aggressiveness, intensity and energy.
Arda btw has to step it up again. He's too indecisive and has to be more direct in his approach when he runs at defences.
Koke as brs says has to be given a rest. The international break comes in a good time to re-energize.
