Atletico Madrid stand at the second position and their main goal is to stay on that position after this game. Diego Simeone has made a fantastic team in the last few seasons and there are not only two big teams in La Liga. Visitors made a big step forward and progress. The main strengths of Atletico is their defence. They have the best defence in league, conceded only 11 goals in 25 matches, but they will fact against team with the best attack in Primera and that will be the real test for them. Atletico Madrid failed to beat PSV in the 1/8 finals of the UEFA Champions League, but they are playing the second leg upfront their supporters and they are favorites to go through. The big problem for visitors could be the fact that the match against city rivals will be their 3rd match in the last 7 days and players are little bit tired, but against Real Madrid they will be fully motivated to make good result.
