Atletico Madrid vs Espanyol -Atletico Madrid, a former champion, has not yet reached their full potential in the Spanish top division but they are on the right track. Currently, they are listed third in the table, after the two giants. And this Saturday at home against the ailing Espanyol, they will be the clear favorites.
Espanyol has only recorded two victories to date and is currently ranked 15th out of 20 teams. In fact, they only have a one-point advantage over Cadiz, who are now in 19th position.
They have been a shambles, especially on the road, and they are giving up goals in large quantities. Their fans find it worrying that they have only been able to win one away game thus far.
The team led by Diego Simeone is once again demonstrating why they are undoubtedly Spain’s third-best. Despite a few early setbacks, they have moved up to third place, trailing only the dynamic duo of Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Throughout the entire league season, Atleti only lost three times, and one of those losses was to archrival and defending champion Real Madrid. Another setback occurred against Villarreal, a former champion of the Europa League.
Additionally, they have a historically strong head-to-head record versus this foe, particularly at home. On Sunday, Atletico Madrid will undoubtedly perform admirably in front of their home crowd.
