Atletico Madrid drew 0-0 again this past weekend in LaLiga Santander, as their stuttering start to the season continued.

The result was their third of that kind in the last four matches and Los Rojiblancos have struggled to trouble their opponents so far this term, even failing to create danger.

Lacking goals

Of the ten games Atletico have played this season, they’ve failed to score in as many as seven of them. Their new-look attacking trident of Joao Felix, Diego Costa and Alvaro Morata haven’t yet clicked, and they’re being made to pay.

This lack of goals is the biggest problem for a side who, despite it all, are nicely positioned in LaLiga Santander and in the Champions League. Domestically they’re three points off first-placed Real Madrid.

Diego Simeone‘s great defence has helped them to maintain their position, not to mention Jan Oblak in goal.

For now, Simeone has to work over the break to find their rhythm again.
