Diego Simeone leads his Atletico Madrid side away to Osasuna on Wednesday night in a must-win LaLiga fixture or risk dropping further in the race for a European spot.
Atletico Madrid is in a battle with four other teams for a Champions League ticket and dropped more points in the race last time out as they drew 1-1 with Athletic Bilbao.
Similarly, Osasuna dropped points in their last match, a 1-1 draw away to another Champions League hopeful in Real Sociedad.
Alvaro Morata and Saul Niguez’s goals gave Madrid a 2-0 win at the Wanda Metropolitano in the reverse fixture, and Simeone will hope his team can pick a similar result.
They, however, will need to be clinical as their last three results in the league have been far from impressive.
A win tonight will see them move to fourth on the standings, depending on other results on various grounds.
