Atletico Madrid could go second in the table this weekend if they beat Elche and Barcelona slip up in the Catalan derby.
The club warmed up for the clash with a 3-0 win over third-tier L’Hospitalet in the Cope del Rey midweek. Simeone rested a number of his stars for the clash with the Argentine set to make as many as 10 changes for the game.
Simeone will be able to call upon his captain Gabi, available again after suspension however defender Miranda misses out.
The Madrid outfit are going in search of a third straight league and while they have been superb at the Vicente Calderon they have struggled on the road with 8 points already dropped.
The champions are unlikely to get too many favours against Fran Escriba’s side. The club are fighting for the lives sitting second bottom of the table and boasting the division’s second worst defence.
A midweek clean sheet in the Copa del Rey draw with Real Valladolid will have helped the confidence and according to midfielder Mario Pasalic the club will be going all out to build on that performance.
“They are the reigning league champions and Champions League finalists, but we’re doing all right and we’re playing at home in front of our fans, so we’re going to try and get a good result” he said.
“The key is for everyone to give the maximum, 100 per cent from everybody on the pitch.”
Escriba is likely to bring David Lomban, Victor Rodriguez, and top scorer Jonathas after they were rested midweek.
