The Spanish capital hosts the second most important game of the Primera Division. Tonight, Atletico play against fellow countrymen and the reigning national and European champions. Carlo Ancelotti’s side are in excellent form and have yet to lose, with a brilliant start to the Champions League group stage, where they beat Celtic and RB Leipzig in succession.
Atletico have a win over Porto, with a worrying defeat to Bayer. There are no surprises in the La Liga championship – the Whites have scored 15 goals and left no one with a chance. At the same time, the Indians are only seventh. I believe that the potential of Diego Simeone’s side has not been unlocked, with one of the two main games helping the team to pull together and secure a draw in such a crucial encounter.
