After a 3-0 win over Numancia on Saturday, Atlético Madrid get back at it Tuesday night as they take on Mexican side Chivas in Arlington, Texas.
It’s another chance for Atlético’s radically-remade team to gel and develop chemistry ahead of LaLiga’s return in less than a month’s time. The win over Numancia saw debuts for (deep breath) Mario Hermoso, Héctor Herrera, Renán Lodi, Felipe Monteiro, Ivan Šaponjić, Kieran Trippier and João Félix (who left injured but only has a contusion). Šaponjić and Felipe scored Atleti’s second and third goals, respectively.
Historically, Chivas are one of Mexico’s more successful clubs. There are 12-time Liga MX champions, secured a league/cup double in 2017 and won the CONCACAF Champions League over Toronto FC in 2018. They are managed by former Mexico international Tomás Boy.
