Due to transfer rumors this summer, Joao Felix (Atletico Madrid), who is hot, was excluded from the first leg of the Coupang Play Series against Team K League.
Team K-League, led by coach Hong 메이저사이트 Myung-bo, will play the first leg of the Coupang Play Series against Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 20th.
Team K League opponent Atlético is a strong team representing Spanish La Liga. Along with Real Madrid and Barcelona, La Liga is evaluated as one of the ‘three greats’.
Star players include Jan Oblak, one of the world’s best goalkeepers, ‘one club man’ and captain Koke, and best striker Antoine Griezmann.
An hour before kickoff, the starting rosters for both teams were released.
Team K League went 4-3-3. Lee Chang-geun protected the goal, and Lee Ki-je, Kim Young-kwon, Jeong Tae-wook, and Seol Young-woo formed the back four. Baek Seung-ho, Han Kook-young, and Bae Jun-ho formed the midfield, and Lee Seung-woo, Joo Min-gyu, and Na Sang-ho sortied as the front three tops.
Atletico faced off with a 5-3-2. Ivo Grvic puts on goalkeeper gloves. Cesar Azpilicueta, Stefan Savic, Axel Witzel, Mario Hermoso and Samuel Linu built the back five. Koke, Rodrigo DePaul, and Tomar Lema were placed in midfield, and Antoine Griezmann and Alvaro Morata worked together as two tops.
Felix, who returned to Atletico after a loan spell at Chelsea in the Premier League last season, was completely excluded from the list that day.
Felix is believed to be a strong move this summer as he has been linked with several clubs including Turkiye Galatasaray and Spain’s Barcelona. He stepped on Korean soil on the pre-season tour list, and seemed to increase the possibility of remaining by participating in open training the day before the game, but his exclusion from the list on this day caused a lot of speculation.
However, the absence on this day seems to be due to a simple injury, not because of transfer rumors. Spain’s Marca said, “Atlético will face Team K League in Korea. Azpilicueta, Harvey Galan, and Chalar Sowinjwi will have opportunities to participate. However, Felix finished training early the previous day due to a muscle injury and will not play. Alvaro Morata will replace him.”
