Atletico Madrid vs Elche
30th December, 02:00 am
Atletico Madrid currently sit fifth in the table, level on points with Athletic Club and Real Betis, drawing or losing as many games as they have won. Their form prior to the break was nothing short of abysmal. Diego Simeone’s side achieved no wins in their previous five games, including three defeats.
After being knocked out of the Champions League, Atletico will have to put full focus on their domestic campaign, and a victory in this match could kickstart a revival and allow the club to get back on track with regards to achieving a top four spot.
Elche are currently winless this season, only achieving four draws which leaves them in the last spot in the table and seven points behind their nearest rival. The Valencian club has lost all of their last three games and they simply have to start picking up points soon to stand any chance of avoiding relegation.
