Atletico Are Our First Real Test

For the first time this season we will be facing a real test against our strength as we fight for our second piece of silverware.

The Spanish Supercup game against Atletico Madrid will not be easy, and you can be certain that Diego Simeone’s men will be doing everything in their power to show that their La Liga victory was no fluke.

We eventually got the better of them in last season’s Champions League final, and while our team has been strengthened, they lost a few key players like Diego Costa and Filipe Luis. However, they have strengthened their quality and depth with the signings of, amongst others, Mario Mandzukic and Antoine Griezmann.

Beyond this, Diego Simeone is a master tactician and is very good at getting his team to operate as a unit. So, we will have our work cut out for us and, hopefully, Cristiano Ronaldo and company will be able to perform at their best and show that we mean business.

A win is expected, and hopefully we can carry a good result into the second leg.
