Atlético is another when it moves away from the Wanda Metropolitano. The rojiblanco team continues to show reliability to your audience characteristic since Simeone arrived on the bench and is a real bone. Nevertheless, playing as a visitor his face is different, as it became clear again in the RCDE Stadium against Espanyol (1-1).
Since December 22, Atleti does not win in the visiting field, 1-2 by Benito Villamarín before Betis. Going back even further, the Cholo they have only won one of the last 13 trips between Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions out, some bad results that have cost the team is out of the Championships in the home competition, to fall eliminated at the hands of Cultural Leonesa in the cupper tournament and that it ended in the second place of the maximum continental competition, something that supposed that the return of the eighth play it out and that on the way the Liverpool, current champion, has crossed.
Regardless the Spanish Super Cup, tournament played in neutral field in Saudi Arabia, Atletico has won only four away matches in the entire course. Three from Liga, against Leganés, Mallorca and Betis and one in Champions against Lokomotiv. The bad streak is accentuated considering that the victory in Butarque was in the first exit of the course and that of Mallorca came in the third, corresponding to the sixth day of the League. That is to say, in the last 20 league days, 10 of them out, only Betis has won as a visitor.
Since the triumph in Moscow against the LokomotivAtlético has played away from home against Valladolid (0-0), Alavés (1-1), Sevilla (1-1), Bayer Leverkusen (2-1), Granada (1-1), Juventus (1-0 ), Villarreal (0-0), Betis (1-2), Eibar (2-0), Cultural (2-1), Real Madrid (1-0), Valencia (2-2) and Espanyol (1-1 ). That is to say, a balance of one victory, seven draws and five losses. Atletico has little room for maneuver and should change the situation as soon as possible if he wants to meet the main objective of the season, finish in Champions positions.
The rojiblanco team receives next week to Seville (Saturday, March 7 at 4:00 p.m.) in a key game for third place. But looking a little further, The next mattress exit is to Anfield, to visit Liverpool (March 11) in the round of the knockout stages of the Champions League with the 1-0 advantage achieved in the Wanda Metropolitano. It will be the first of three consecutive starts facing the Simeone team. After visiting England comes the turn of San Mamés, stadium that despite being good at Atlético (except 2-0 last season), is one of the biggest challenges of the course. And a week later it will be The Sadar who measures the rojiblanca visitor progression. Osasuna Stadium is also a fort with a very high difficulty.
