Jutglà cracks Atletico


The small Catalan striker leads with an assist and a goal Bruges' destruction of Simeone's team (2-0), who was not forceful either in the areas or with the ball

PreviousLive Chronicle

”Jutglà, Jutglà”, reverberated sharply in the stands of the Jan Breydel stadium in Bruges.

The small striker captured Barcelona destroyed Atlético with two fine actions that greatly compromised the classification of Simeone's team and almost ruled him out to lead the group to nothing that the Belgian team adds a victory and a draw.

He will say that current called


, not without reason, that the forcefulness in the two areas gave victory to Bruges.

But between both areas there is also another forcefulness, that of the ball, that of having a good time and in that, Simeone's footballers left much to be desired during various sections of the match.

He did not give Atlético ten drinking minutes in which he could get ahead on the scoreboard.

He was punished for his mistakes in both areas, but also because he was a horror with the ball, which the coach's proposal wants little from him and this time, moreover, badly.

Yellow cards Odoi (min. 36), Raphael Onyedika Nwadike (min. 45), Reinildo Mandava (min. 52), Savic (min. 60), Tajon Buchanan (min. 69), Mignolet (min. 74) and Abakar Sylla (min. 87)

In the eighties neighborhood hierarchy, dressing in the colors of the Netherlands implied handling the ball at least handsomely to avoid mocking mockery.

Nothing to do with what Simeone's players offered at the start of the game.

A barrage of bad passes and lost balls that gave Bruges the government of the game.

Bold, respecting the same story with which his fans come enthusiastically to European nights, the Belgian champion began to the sound of Canadian Buchanan's waist dances.

Reinildo had to digest them and Oblak listened to the whistle of his centers that found no finisher.

Planted with a short team in their own field, on guard to punish any mistake, Atlético weathered Bruges' impressive exit as best they could, who turned their pressure into individual pursuits that bogged down their shrunken rival.

It took Simeone's team to stabilize and to accommodate Griezmann's position as inside right.

The Frenchman's second start so far this season was at the expense of Saúl and Carrasco de Cunha, who had submitted his candidacy to keep the title in Seville.

The Belgian's form questions whether the opportunity came to him by playing on clay.

The team is not here to allow itself to be managed by its coach with such winks.

It was Griezmann who understood that the ball had to be circulated from side to side to dismantle Bruges' pressure and find some weakness.

From the first string of decent passes Atlético managed to rush Mignolet with a shot from Carrasco.

And discovering that behind the lanky Sylia there was a desert, first Griezmann and then Morata demanded Mignolet.

The one of the Spanish scorer was a heads up won by the Belgian goalkeeper.

Atlético's uprising was broken by Marcos Llorente's muscle injury, replaced by Correa.

Bruges reappeared and began their stellar night Jutglà.

So far he had intervened little.

His first appearance was to sneak between Savic and Giménez with a wall.

He sat Molina down and, leaning over, passed Sowach back to push him into an empty net.

Simeone: "We lacked forcefulness in both areas"

The punch that Atlético had not had, was that of Bruges, who went into the break with an advantage on the scoreboard and the feeling of having been more ambitious in their proposal.

The interval brought other bad news.

Simeone's footballers break day after day.

Giménez relapsed from his muscular discomfort.

His umpteenth injury forced the Argentine coach to bring in Kondogbia and return Witsel to the center of defense.

Confidence in Hermoso and Felipe seems to be at a minimum.

It did not matter, Jutglà once again slashed Atlético's defense down the middle with a volley to which Oblak responded with a prodigious hand.

He did not spare the second.

Another knife in the defensive axis of Atlético.



, this one very futsal in which Buchanan left the ball in his face so that he could beat Oblak from a corner.

Stricken with pride and need, Griezmann led Atlético's attempt to get back into the game.

A penalty committed on Cunha could open the duel.

Like the one he had in the Champions League final in Milan, he threw it to break and the destination was the same, the crossbar.

It was not the day of the Simeone team, who left João Félix for the final ten minutes as the last change.

Too late.

The disaster had happened before.
