Athletic Madrid won 2 nil.

Torreira was named in the starting line-up for the game and partnered Koke in central midfield, with Angel Correa and Thomas Lemar in the wide positions in a 4-4-2 formation.

It was a decent performance for the Gunners loanee, who was given a 7.4 rating by Whoscored.
Best marks for outfield player.

I watched bits of the game. He looked good, which I expected. He’s very suited to that simeone system. If they start to tick a bit better in the final third which they should do when Joao Felix and Suarez starting playing together then I expect them to win la Liga.

Good day for them yesterday with Barcelona and Real slipping up.
On another note he can make a debut after very little football and Thomas can't.

Yep good point. We always seem to overprotect players.

Torreira's lack of height puts him at a disadvantage in the EPL where the ball is in the air more often than in La Liga. He will do very well in AM and Edu should be asking for a hefty transfer fee for him at the end of the season.
