Atletico Madrid take on the visitors Porto in the round 1 match of UEFA Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, September 15th, at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Atletico in the upcoming match may well show very good football. The team is gradually improving the attacking game. Plus, Antoine Griezmann returned, with whom the team should obviously do better. At home, Atletico is unlikely to allow the opposition to create many chances. The Spanish team have always defended quite well, and in the first match of the tournament, most likely, Los Colcheneros will be extremely concentrated. Atletico has always been distinguished not only by good players in attack and defense, but also by a very high level of efficiency. Even the representatives of the attacking group work out in their own half of the field. This is quite possible to expect now. Atletico will not betray itself, and will try to run over the opponent, among other things. But skill, as it was said, is also a big order.
Porto also has quite solid squad. But this club is below the level of Atletico Madrid. The away match factor in this situation will be quite a serious problem. Since it is difficult to perform well in Spain even for representatives of not the most distant countries. Most likely, the away team will play on counterattacks. The team plays in this manner in international matches. The squad includes players of a fairly high level who are able to run away at high-speed breaks. However, against Atletico it will be quite difficult to do it. As already noted, the Spaniards show themselves excellently in defense, and will in every possible way suppress the attempts of the Portuguese.
Most likely, now we will see a noticeably better football by the hosting team. Atletico is stronger - it's hard to argue with that. And in such a serious group, the hosts have to battle only for three points. Diego Simeone will clearly provide moves in order to defend well on a stable basis. Everything will probably be built around this particular game component. At home, Atletico is strong on the defensive. Still, Porto doesn't have such a formidable attack - even with the great talent of individual. The most logical thing here will be to expect not the brightest, but at the same time effective football by the Spanish team.
