Two Cup semi-finalists will play this Saturday at 16:15 at Mendizorroza's Stadium (Vitoria), where our team will try to start the second round of the League championship with a win against Deportivo Alavés. Thus, the red and white team would re-live the win from its last visit to the mentioned field, when on the 22nd of April, 2006, it won by 0-1 with Antonio Lopez's goal.
Both squads come to the match after winning this week their respective knockout rounds ones of the King’s Cup quarter-finals, with Simeone’s team eliminating Eibar and Pellegrino’s, Alcorcón. Thus, Atlético de Madrid and Alavés continued their good start in 2017, in which each has only lost a match between all competitions. Winning streaks that keep our team in top positions to qualify for the Champions' and the blue and white team in a comfortable twelfth position.
