We return to domestic competition to face a new challenge, in this case, against Almería. The Power Horse Stadium will host this Saturday 24th February from 9pm, the match corresponding to the 26th round of LALIGA between Almeria and Atleti. The match will be directed by referee Alberola Rojas, who will be assisted by Jaime Latre from the VAR.

Simeone's side are back in league mode after playing the first game of the tie against Inter at the Giuseppe Meazza. After the win against Las Palmas in the last league match (5-0) with braces from Correa and Llorente and a goal from Memphis, our team face Almería with the intention of consolidating their place in the Champions League places.
