By the time this match kicks off, Atletico Madrid may find themselves 13 points off the summit. After this match, they will be traveling to Catalonia to take on Barcelona in the league action. So if Diego Simeone’s team is to remain relevant in the title race, they have to win this game as well as the match at Camp Nou.
However, it’s easier said than done as this weekend’s opponents are Deportivo Alaves who are flying high in the table all season.
While Atletico Madrid are coming into this match on the back of some terrible results in March.
Having won the first leg 2-0 against Juventus, the Rojiblancos headed to Turin as the favorites to qualify to the quarterfinals. But instead, they came unstuck against their familiar foe Cristiano Ronaldo who scored a brilliant hat-trick.
That result was followed by another poor result on the road, this time a 2-0 loss against Athletic Bilbao.
Alves, on the other hand, are unbeaten in the last six league games with their last defeat coming on the road against Real Madrid.
This has been some season for the club and a pretty big leap from the last season where they managed a 14th place finish in the 2017-18 season.
But that position is set to be bettered as Alaves are 5th with a European place well within their grasp.
