Simeone’s Athletico Madrid, built around Joao Félix, is starting to hit its top gear. Some parts just seem to be working perfectly, like Ángel Correa, who has emerged as the perfect partner for the young Portuguese forward.
Joao Félix already has five goals in all competitions this season, four of them in the last two games.
It all began against Granada. The Atletico goal-fest saw Félix bag one, assisted by Correa, who scored a brace himself that afternoon.
The other two assists took place against Red Bull Salzburg and Osasuna, both games in which Joao scored twice.
The understanding between the two players is superb. Joao has assumed the leadership role and Ángel is happy to play a key role in creating chances.
