Atletico Madrid Form and Team News

The Cup holders are still to get off the blocks after the first four games, they have secured ten points with three wins and a draw. They have won three and have they been convincing? The answer could be ‘NO’.Atletico Madrid played some inspirational football last season. They were so clinical that not even once in the entire season were they out of the first three positions, they were the better team through the whole season and deservedly ended up winners as well. They are playing against Athletic Club in the next match and they would want to start to dominate the league. They have become the Spanish powerhouses after whatever they have done in the past few seasons, but one thing which is missing is a European Silverware which they can start eyeing to become World-beaters.

Diego Simeone has been spectacular with his reign at Atletico Madrid and he is starting to become a feared manager in the circuit. Given the form that both Real Madrid and Barcelona are in presently combined with all that’s been happening off the field as well, this season if Atletico can really capitalize, they can end up winning everything with the team they have. Luis Suarez has been playing like a dream and if he continues to do that, this team could really turn on the heat. The signing of Rodrigo De Paul also has been a highlight. The biggest surprise came on the last day of the transfer window when a certain former Atletico Legend Antonie Griezmann was signed back. This adds to a already spectacular line up a even more lethal lad. 

Athletic Club Form and Team News

Athletic Club is one among the seven remaining teams in La Liga so far which is yet to taste a defeat this season. They are presently in the fifth position after four games with two draws and two wins to their name. They finished last season as the tenth placed team in La Liga. They were decent throughout the league and even caused some upsets along the way. They are playing against Atletico Madrid on Saturday away. Athletic Club’s recent form has been quite ok, they have won five games in the last ten and have lost two matches in the lead up to this game while also drawing another three games in the process.

Inaki Williams, Raul Garcia, Nico Williams and Villalibre combined in the frontline. Iker Muniain, Alex Berenguer, Dani Garcia and Vencedor are all young and a great bunch of midfield prodigies to have in your team and if they happen to put in performances of substance, then this Athletic Club team could be in for some real haunt. Spanish coach Marcelino needs to balance this team out and try to get the best out of them by allowing them to play freely and see what happens from there on.
