After Their Football Match, Diego Simeone Is Under Increased Pressure

Real Madrid slumped to a 2-1 away loss against hosts Granada on Wednesday night. After their football match, Diego Simeone is under increased pressure.

The indefatigable Joao Felix scored an opener for Atletico Madrid in this game and desperately tried to score a second.

But an equally determined Granada eventually frustrated him. The hosts found the winner midway through the second half thanks to Jorge Molina’s goal.

It was Granada’s first win against Atletico since 1973, ending a 25-game winless streak.

This shock 2-1 defeat away at Granada is a part, an extension, of a recent slump in form for Atletico. And despite carrying the Madrid club to last season’s title, the La Liga champions’ coach is facing hounding from above.

Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid have lost four successive league matches for the first time since Simeone took charge in 2011. The Argentine’s role has come under scrutiny from both club supporters and Spanish media in recent times.

Simeone’s judgment is constantly being questioned as Atletico’s usually rock-solid defence has now leaked in 22 goals in 18 games. Furthermore, in this season, the champions have managed to keep only five clean sheets in La Liga during that time.

In contrast, they had conceded only eight goals at the same stage during their 2021-2022 campaign.
