Atlético de Madrid visits the Gran Canaria stadium looking to win the three points that will maintain them in the third position in LaLiga, in the fight they have with Sevilla. Our team wants a win before playing the Champions semi-finals next Tuesday against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu.
This season there is a precedent in the Gran Canaria stadium, in a King’s Cup round of 16 match. Our squad beat Quique Setién’s by a resounding 0-2, with goals by Griezmann and Koke; a decisive result because it made useless the Canary’s 2-3 win at the Calderón. In LaLiga, Saúl scored the winning goal in the 1-0 result.
Atlético de Madrid is on a winning streak away from home, with a 20-game stretch without a loss in the three competitions: the Champions League, the League and the King’s Cup, and the goal is to continue on this streak as long as possible.
