Atleti resume the LaLiga action after the international break with a tough away game. Simeone’s men travel to Vitoria to face Alavés at Mendizorroza with the intention of earning three important points.
Abelardo’s side arrive at matchday 29 in fifth place and looking to break into the top four positions that give access to the Champions League. They’re just two points off fourth-placed Getafe as a consequence of their fantastic streak, as Alavés haven’t lost any of their last six games, winning three and drawing three over that period. In their last league game, Abelardo’s team earned a 3-1 away win against Huesca at El Alcoraz.
Alavés are the fifth side that have conceded the least amount of goals in LaLiga (31, tied with Athletic Club), have Calleri as their top scorer with six goals and Jony as their leading assist provider (nine). Griezmann has scored 12 goals and given six assists for our team.
In the last match between both sides, Atleti earned a 3-0 win on matchday 15. Kalinic, Griezmann and Rodrigo were the goalscorers at the Wanda Metropolitano on the day.
