- Our team have not lost any of the last six LaLiga games against Alavés, keeping clean sheets in the last three.
- In the last eight times we've hosted the Basque side, the away team only beat us once, in 2003 (5W, 2D).
- Simeone is yet to lose against Alavés as Atleti coach (2W, 2D). Moreover, Saturday's match will see the Argentine face Abelardo, the coach against whom Simeone has earned the most wins (four, same as against Valverde).

- Alavés player Jony Rodríguez has scored in three out of his last four LaLiga games.
- A challenge for Antoine Griezmann. Since the Frenchman plays in LaLiga, he has scored against 30 out of the 33 teams he's faced. Our team, RCD Mallorca and Alavés are the only exceptions.
- Out of the 18 goals we've scored so far, nine have been with the right foot, four with the left, four with the head and one has been an own goal.
- Out of those 18 goals, nine were scored between the 61st and the 90th minute.
