Valencia vs Atlético Madrid match preview

Back in action for the first time in 26 days, will Atlético Madrid’s red-hot form continue?

Before the international break, Atleti were scheduled to welcome Sevilla to Cívitas Metropolitano, but the match was postponed due to record-breaking rain in the Spanish capital.

The fixture will now take place just two days before Christmas.

When los Colchoneros did last take to a pitch, they steamrollered Rayo Vallecano 7-0 at Vallecas.

Antoine Griezmann, Memphis, Nahuel Molina, Álvaro Morata, Ángel Correa and Marcos Llorente all scoring in that Monday night massacre.

This is only the second time ever Atleti have scored 7+ in a top-flight away game, following a 7-2 victory over Real Sporting de Gijón in April 1948.

Similarly, Valencia enjoyed the perfect start to their campaign too, beating both Sevilla and Las Palmas, although back-to-back defeats subsequently have seen los Che come crashing back down to earth.

Rubén Baraja’s team were beaten 2-1 by Osasuna at home, conceding in the 95th minute, before a 1-0 defeat against Alavés, with Cenk Özkacar’s unfortunate early own goal the difference at Mendizorrotza.

Thus, Atlético Madrid travel to Mestalla as overwhelming favourites.
