Atlético has João Félix back, who has overcome a muscle injury He returned to a call and could have minutes to receive Villarreal in the Wanda Metropolitano. A rival who keeps a bittersweet memory of Portuguese. Also in the visit to the team of Calleja had recently emerged from an injury, although in Ceramics it was a sprained ankle that had had him off the pitch for a month. João Felix played the 90 minutes of a game for the first time after his injury after having gradually entered the team with 15 minutes in Granada, 36 in Turin and 66 against Barcelona, varying his position between the front and as a right inside. But against Villarreal he went on to play as second striker, his favorite position and where he settled after his good role in Castellón. Two of his attempts went to goal, but they crashed in Sergio Asenjo, one of them deflecting with the fingertips the shot from outside the area of the young pearl mattress so that the ball ended up crashing with the stick. But in addition, João Félix enjoyed a hand-in-hand with Asenjo after a large inside pass from Saul where his attempt at Vaseline marched over the goal. The ‘7’ also showed his version as an assistant, player with last pass, but in that facet it was his teammates who had no success. Koke in the first instance and Lodi in the second. In the night of today João Félix could take it out and celebrate his return to the playing fields, getting what he had so close in the first leg, the goal. The Portuguese has lost four games during his injury: the derby against Real Madrid (1-0 defeat), the victory against Granada (1-0), the draw against Valencia (2-2) and the victory against Liverpool (1-0). The plan of the coaching staff goes through gradually recovering João Félix to arrive in the best conditions to the match against Sevilla (March 7) and Anfield (March 11), two of the great mattress appointments of the rest of the season, the first in the fight for the Champions League positions and the second to try to certify the result of the first leg and advance to the fourth in the continental competition. The Portuguese was the rojiblanco player more unbalanced in attack, incisive, vertical, screener, but he was also infected by the lack of aim that has accompanied the team all season. Total, João Felix finished nine times, half of the team’s 18 (Saul made four) to become Atlético player with more shots away from home without scoring At least since 2003.
