Atleti is the leader of LaLiga and has everything to face to lift the title. But if there is something that also excites the same or more that is the Champions League. Simeone has had it close and you can get it in this new edition. Chelsea will be the great obstacle in the short term. In fact, February 23 is the first leg in Bucharest (the other option was for it to be played at the Genoa stadium, Luigi Ferraris, but the Italian stadiums prepared are not free on the dates of the match).
The granota team is one of the entities that are six points away from burning and wants to flee from this scenario as soon as possible, so they will not make it easy for the rojiblancos. The 17 victories in the 21 games played are exciting in the mattress parish. This League goes through the day to day and to win games that, in theory, were complicated like the day of Éibar, Granada, Alavés … There is no doubt about all the effort that each Atleti player has made to reach this moment. A sweet moment that is characterized by having the hard block at its best level like Llorente, Carrasco, Suárez and company.
Only one defeat in the league
No European team has the Atleti numbers. Only one defeat in 21 games proves the defensive potential with 13 goals conceded. Oblak and the defense are insurance for the LaLiga leader who seeks to improve those last records, since he has conceded in the last five games in a row. Against Levante, they will have a new opportunity to leave the locker at zero. In the mattress parish they dream of this great season.
