The Argentinian Angel Correa shone in Balaídos, with a double that decided the triumph of Atlético de Madrid against Celta, a new sample that will be the rojiblanca reference in attack together with the Uruguayan Luis Suarez.
After signing his most complete season since landing in Madrid in 2015, being a key piece in the achievement of the league title, the skilled Argentine attacker started the new season with two decisive goals.
2021 is his year. First he conquered LaLiga and later the Copa América with his national team. Simeone gave him 65 minutes to dose it, after a busy season. It was enough for him to score two goals: in the first he hung her from the corner and opened the game; in the second he beat his compatriot Matías Dituro with a powerful cross shot.
Correa was blamed for his lack of effectiveness, and against Celta he showed a remarkable improvement. A statistic gives it away: two shots, two goals. Simeone always defended him, even when he missed clear chances against Levante, Sevilla and Betis. The technician kept him in the team, and ended up being decisive in obtaining the title.
In an Athletic without too much weight in attack waiting for Joao felix Y Rodrigo De Paul, the Argentine has become a reference.
