Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why Atletico Madrid could do the unthinkable
Team Is Much Stronger
Veteran goalkeeper Juan Oblak is Atletico Madrid regular goalkeeper and having good experience in goal too. He showed some remarkable statistics previous season conceding only one goal from his 22 games.
Nothing more to talk about Atletico Madrid defensive caliber, with Godin and Jimenez at the center will hold the total game. Moreover, both the partners are having good understanding between them and recently featured themselves for Uruguay in the world cup.
Atletico Madrid midfield is occupied by reliable Koke and Saul, both are blessed with great ability with the ball. Atletico Madrid signed winger Gelson Martins who will accompany Thomas Lemar in the wing field.
Costa and Griezmann Upfront
Diego Costa who recently ended his loan spell at Chelsea returned to Atletico and will play alongside world cup winner Griezmann up front. There is no doubt about their ability and both are exceptional with talents and despite the scoreline, they can turn things in favor of their team at any time.
Atletico has gradually established them and hinted the football fans what they are capable of. For many years they have put pressure on their arch-rivals Barcelona and Madrid and snatching the title form them in the 2013-2014 season.
They were also the winner of last year Europa league and winner of Copa del Rey 2012/2013 season. All these experience might help them to lift up the La Liga title yet another season.
