first_img01/09/2020 – 21:58 | 22:43 – 9/01/20 Those of Simeone trace a match (2-3) that had deservedly lostThe culé team disappears in the final stretch of an exciting matchThe goals of Morata and Correa in the end cite the rojiblancos with Madrid Instead of where women are degraded by the mere fact of being women and thousands of kilometers away from the fans of both teams, the semi-final of the Spanish Super Cup between Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid reeked of one more match among all those who play for a title in which you risk more than you earn. However, what happened in Jeddah was an ode to the inexplicable from which the rojiblancos won, with a 2-3 that takes them to the final against Real Madrid.Everything was based on the survival instinct. The one that the Athletic one possesses in enormous quantities and the one that the Barcelona loses between the hands. Only in this way is it understood that it is the mattresses and not the culés who are at the end of Sunday. Atletico lacked everything for 80 minutes, but he did it dodging death sentences. Some were stopped by Oblak and others stopped by the VAR. Later, the faint of Barça took advantage of the Simeone squad with an unusual faith and a decisive final arreón, led by Vitolo’s fresh legs.In spite of everything, the party must leave a very negative reading for those of Simeone. He was totally dominated by Barcelona, ​​with and without the ball. Locked up in his field, he had to endure the precise circulation of rival ball and the physical phenomenon that is an Arturo Vidal that alone is worth as an army. The center of the rojiblanco field was deactivated, with Thomas, Saúl and Héctor Herrera collected errors at full hands and an imperial Busquets in the management of the soccer culé and also in the recovery after loss. Messi was soon awake, testing from the front on a couple of occasions, without danger. Savic and Felipe, co-managed, were able to draw two services of Griezmann rights to the head of Luis Suárez in the last breath. The clearest was for the Frenchman, who relied too much on the unproven humanity of Oblak. The Slovenian, in hand to hand, took out his arm and denied his ex-partner as much as the entire stadium took the goal for granted. On the athletic side, a foul shot by Héctor Herrera and many, many doubts. Photo: EFE To try to scare them, the ‘Cholo’ put Koke by the Mexican, and in the first surprise of the night, the change was successful at 18 seconds: those that took the ‘6’ to take advantage of Correa’s filtered pass to beat to Net. The joy did not last long for Atlético, who in five minutes suffered the peck of Messi, in a right that took place after a rejection and with the passivity of Thomas. The result better reflected what was seen on the grass, and the feelings also endorsed it: Barcelona played and played as it had done until then … but Oblak had other plans. The goalkeeper took a blow to Messi and a new Vaseline to Griezmann. He could not do anything when the Argentine, with Saul covering him with his eyes, broke the hip of the ‘8’ and put it to keep. This time it was the VAR who entered to whistle a previous hand. But even Oblak has limits. With Lodi to see them coming, Suarez came alone on the second stick to shoot with his head. The elsoveno took it as he could, but in the clearance he could not correct the slowness of Felipe, who could only see how Griezmann also traced with the head. Already with the result in favor, Barcelona maniató and mistreated Atlético. But without killing him. Oblak did another miracle before the shot of Luis Suarez, Messi did not adjust well to the long stick, the VAR annulled (well) a goal from Piqué out of Vidal’s game … and, suddenly, something creaked. Fainting of BarcelonaIt didn’t ring, it wasn’t noticeable until the first loss came. Barcelona dissolved like a sugar bowl in a matter of seconds, from one moment to another. The transformation coincided with the entry into the Vitolo field, which provided Atlético with speed and poison in the final meters. The rojiblancos smelled the blood and decided to really push, and the revolution began. It was the Canary who, after a loss of Griezmann, stood alone before Neto and took the penalty. Morata did not forgive and, faced with the disbelief of everyone, marked the tie. It was ten minutes to go and the best was yet to come. After an incomprehensible action of the VAR when not indicating hand of Piqué within the area, the Athletic one continued pressing. Thus came a new loss in which Morata left Correa in his hand in front of Neto. The Argentine, true to his style, defined badly, fatally, but the goalkeeper’s rejection went straight to the net. Barça only had a spontaneous reaction, a steamer based on balls to the pot. A mirage. Marcos Llorente was about to make the 2-4 with a slalom to the goal with a shot that Neto cleared with trouble. Correa’s goal had been final. To end a Barcelona with feet of clay. To send an Atletico to the final of the Super Cup that has already exhausted all the topics on resistance.
