Match preview

Atletico's league form this season has been staggering, winning 16, drawing two and losing just one of their 19 matches to sit 10 points clear at the top of the table.

Simeone's side also currently have a game in hand over second-placed Barca and third-placed Real Madrid, although the two biggest sides in Spain will both be in action over the weekend and therefore the advantage could be seven points by the time that Atletico take to the field for this contest.

The Red and Whites have only conceded 10 times in La Liga this season, which is the best defensive record, while they have managed 40 goals, which is the second-best attacking record behind Barca.

Atletico, who last won La Liga in 2013-14, are actually on an eight-game winning run in the league, including a 4-2 success at Cadiz last weekend, where Luis Suarez scored another two goals to make it 14 in 16 La Liga outings for his new club.

Simeone's team will be expecting to put another three points on the board here, but Celta held the capital side to a goalless draw when they locked horns at Wanda Metropolitano last season.
