Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone expects Luis Suarez to take charge today against Osasuna.
Simeone spoke to the press ahead of the game, where he insists his side must continue to take things step by step.
Much has been made of the fact that Luis Suarez has not scored in five LaLiga games, but Simeone believes the Uruguayan will find his form in what is a crucial part of the campaign, given the type of player he is.
“We hope that when Joao Felix is involved, he will give us what he can and show how important he is. The team needs him,” Simeone said.
“As for Luis, we are now entering Suarez territory. It is the ideal time for a footballer like him to find the solutions to what we might encounter. He’s used to this kind of game.”
Beyond the obvious anticipation of clinching LaLiga Santander, Simeone is just focused on the next game.
“We continue in the same way, as always,” he said.
“We are concerned with the match against Osasuna, a team that always compete and will do so tomorrow as well.
“We are going to try to come through our match, which is the most important thing. I see the team with excitement and enthusiasm.”

Manchester United Reject Signing Neymar
Manchester United reportedly decided against signing Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar in a swap deal with former midfielder Paul Pogba back in 2019, Express UK reports.
Neymar has continued to be linked with a departure from PSG this summer as he’s irked by comments made by the club’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
Al-Khelaifi had recently said: “A possible departure for Neymar this summer?
“What I can tell you is that we expect all players to do a lot more than last season.
“You have to become humble, you have to avoid injuries, suspensions and fouls that change a game.”
However, one team linked with the 30-year-old Brazilian international is Manchester United, although they could have already acquired him three years ago.
Man United’s former chief executive Ed Woodward rejected the opportunity of bringing Neymar to Old Trafford.
PSG reportedly approached Man United about the possibility of exchanging Neymar with Pogba, but the Premier League giants deemed the former Barcelona star to be too expensive.
Neymar’s wages of around £606,000 a week reportedly put Woodward off, and the former executive was also keen to keep Pogba at United.
