Can Atleti bounce back in their games?

Atletico Madrid is in big trouble in the 2021-22 season after a strong finish in the last run. They have been struggling to keep up with the top clubs and they are yet to get a strong push going.

The defending champs have been sitting in the seventh spot with an up and down pace in their games for the 2021-22 season. The club has been stagnant in their push after winning in their first few games.

Atleti’s success in the past where they won the league title was connected to their ability to run the offence with a strong focus on scoring the goals and poking a lot of holes on the defence. That is yet to be seen in the 2021-22 season and the club needs to work on that area if they plan to at least return to the top spot in La Liga and beat the likes of Sociedad, Madrid and Sevilla.

As long as Atleti keeps their same roster intact, there is a strong chance that the club can bounce back in their games. This is an opportunity that they cannot ignore if they want to win back to back titles.

Atleti needs to spark a strong streak

As Atleti did in the 2020-21 season, the club should work to get a streak going as well. The club has won eight in a row in the past run and it was in the closing moments of the season. That run staved off the Blancos in a crucial stretch and it gave them the title win. This was the strong push that is missing in the current run.

If Atleti can pull it off early, then this means they can outpace the rest of the league and build a strong lead at the top. It is better to add to the lead than to chase points late in the season. This is a spot that the club wants to be in.

The spark should come in their next set of games since they have an easy schedule for at least two to three weeks. This should come in handy for the club if they are going to build a big lead in the season soon.

Add more points and keep the wins going

Atleti needs to mind the points they have in the 2021-22 season. They are just behind by three points from the top spot so this should not be a big worry for the club right now. However, the need to add more points to their tally is still a priority. All of the clubs ahead of Atleti are winning well in their games, so they should keep up.

The champs still have a lot of games left to play so they can still make some big adjustments. Adding players should also be an option.

The club needs to make sure that they can stay ahead of the other three teams in the top four. Atleti has one shot to improve in their games before the second half. While it is still early in the season for Atleti to panic, it would be wise to improve in their next set of games to survive the 2021-22 season.
