The Nasrid team, for its part, has lived the opposite: he let the victory slip away against Valencia and Barcelona and still does not know what it is to win at this start of the season at the hands of Robert Moreno, who has come to Los Cármenes to replace Diego Martínez, the head of the best stage in the club’s history.
Different objectives for both teams
Atlético de Madrid has started the 2021/22 season with the great objective of maintaining hegemony in LaLiga in the face of the threat of Real Madrid, Barcelona or Seville and taking another step forward in the Champions League: After losing two finals in 2014 and 2016, the rojiblancos dream of winning the title for the first time in their history.
Granada, meanwhile, has started a new stage with Robert Moreno at the helm and the reality is that the team has lost potential to repeat the feat of finishing in European positions.. Permanence is taken for granted and the great objective is to finish in the first half of the table and for this, players like Monchu, Rubén Rochina or Luís Maximiano.
