3 Academy prospects Paris Saint-Germain didn’t capitalize03 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
Paris Saint-Germain has an history of wasting their youth talent. Who are they?
Atletico Madrid plays tonight against Lokomotiv Moscow at Wanda Metropolitano and the Spaniards are forced to win to qualify for the next round of the Champions League without troubles. The Madrid side are in second place of the group D and have seven points, one more than the Germans of Bayer Leverkusen, which hosts the already qualified Juventus. In case of not qualifying, Atlético repeat the result of the 2017/18 season. That year the Spanish team fell to the Europa League... and who remembers what happened next?
Having reached the final in 2015/16 and the semi-final the following year, Atletico Madrid defeated all expectations in the 2017/18 Champions League campaign. The Colchoneros joined a group with Roma, Chelsea, and Karabakh and were unable to beat the Italian and English competition, scoring just one win in six games (four draws and one defeat).
The poor performance in the Champions League was corrected in a near-perfect Europa League campaign with seven wins, one draw and one defeat. Along the way were Copenhagen, Lokomotiv, Sporting Lisbon, Arsenal and Marseille in the final. In the team guided by the same Simeone shone names like Griezmann, Godim or Gabi and none of them is part of the current Atletico.
