Anfield remains Atletico’s last chance to lift a trophy this season
Whilst Atletico Madrid’s domestic campaign has flattered to deceive, the club now faces a trip to Anfield which remains their final chance to win a trophy in the 2019/20 campaign.
Los Colchoneros hold a slender 1-0 advantage from the first leg, courtesy of Saul Niguez’s early goal, but stopping Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side from scoring at Anfield will be one of the toughest challenges the Argentine coach has ever faced.
Winning trophies has been something that Simeone has done with regularity and consummate ease since arriving back at the Estadio Vicente Calderon as coach.
He has reshaped the club and secured a famous LaLiga Santander triumph, as well as reaching two Champions League finals.
The former Inter midfielder won the Europa League within six months of taking change, and we’re now looking at a trophy haul of seven throughout his time in charge.
Yet, 2019/20 has been different, there have been on-pitch struggles as the team has looked to move into the post-Griezmann era.
Joao Felix is very much a work-in-progress, whilst injuries have decimated Simeone’s forward line throughout the season.
In LaLiga Santander they have fallen way short of Real Madrid and Barcelona, with an awful away record, and they were eliminated from the Copa del Rey by lowly Cultural Leonesa.
The Champions League is all that is left on the table for Los Rojiblancos, although this does remain the trophy which eludes Simeone.
Liverpool are likely to secure their Premier League crown in the next two domestic matches, and represent a huge challenge to the Spanish club, although one they thrive under.
Simeone’s teams are at their best when being forced to defend, they do it so well and are so incredibly organised that some of their greatest moments under the former River Plate coach have come in such scenarios.
Bayern Munich and Barcelona can both attest to this, and Simeone will be hoping to add the famous name of Liverpool to this list, especially at a time when they are widely considered the best football team in the world.
