It was not yesterday, but we are talking about the same season and that's why it can be surprising: Atlético will visit today from 18.45, a Tigre team that is very different from what he got for date 5 in the tournament. The only frame in the game says it all: it will be for the first foot of the Super League Cup semi-final, a tournament that seems to confirm not only that change with regard to that duel but also a small internal revolution of its rival.
At that time the team Ricardo Zielinski faced a law that dreamed of staying in the first but with a level of play that was not compatible with that dream. 3-0 with a show of three goals Luis Rodríguez (He was still at Atlético) he did nothing but show that hypothesis.
Of the 18 "killers" players who came to Tucumán in September 2018 and stopped suffering that defeat, only six are repeated if we consider the list of concentrates for tomorrow. It is necessary to make it clear that there could have been eight but the damage Walter Montillo and Néstor Moiraghi they prevented it.
Justo Montillo who was the key to that change in the current world of Tigre and who will miss both games in the series. Anyway, Atlético fans can't trust: the bank is Néstor Gorosito, responsible for the radical change of the team. Since joining the club, he has managed 14 games, eight wins and only three losses (plus three draws, of course). It was still not enough for the team to keep the category. Atlético will face a law coming from which many things can be said only for that state, but no one would be correct if we appeal to common places.
Tiger is not discouraged, his game is not bad, he lacks motivation and he is not unattended. On the contrary, in one of the statements that would coincide with a team that lost the category.
In the 14 games, the team scored 25 goals and when they scored before they scored, they always reacted. It is one of its most important virtues, but it can become one of its shortcomings. Tigers rebellion against racing, champion of Super League, River, first team throughout this cup and reversed negative results. But when you have to take the initiative, like today's match, it costs a lot.
"We do not know how to wait. At the disadvantage we react," admits Gerardo Alcoba, another of the basic parts of Tigre but it also gets low.
By local and against Athletic is meant that Tigre should go to the match, but its own protagonists acknowledge that it costs them. It will be about utilizing Atlético. And if he did, never trust it. Because it is a disadvantage and still falls down, it is when his opponent has played best. What is very different from what he met in September.
