Atleti take on Alavés at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday in a new league fixture. The game – an important one in our LaLiga challenge – is to kick off at 6.30pm CET.

Simeone’s men are the league leaders with 63 points and have collected a win against Athletic Club and a draw at Getafe in the last two fixtures. In the reverse fixture at Alavés, our team earned a late 2-1 win thanks to a first half goal from Llorente and a last-minute winner by Luis Suárez. We have played 11 times at home in the league against the Basque club and only failed to score once – while netting 29 goals.

Alavés are currently 18th with 23 points, and in their last game they drew 1-1 against Cádiz. Abelardo’s men are trying to escape relegation zone and have in Joselu and Lucas Pérez’s their main men to achieve their objective.
