Other than Real Madrid and Barcelona, there is another team who are so far the favorites to win the La Liga after 7 years, Atletico Madrid. This team has conceded the least goals in this season. They also have a rich squad with one of the most interesting managers, Diego Simeone.
He took charge of this club in December 2011. If you are an Atletico fan, here are some of the latest news which includes the squad, upcoming fixtures as well as the live streaming of the matches.
They won their latest match against Eibar. They are currently at the top of the La Liga table. The rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid are not much far behind. They just took 8 points in the last 15 available points. They also were knocked out by Chelsea in the champions league. They are also getting injuries and some of their best players are sidelined. In the unexpected signing, Luis Suarez is also sidelined due to injury. They have seven matches remaining with one away game against Barcelona.
They can be fully focused on La Liga now as they were knocked out at an early stage in Copa del Rey by UE Cornella. They also defeated Barcelona and drew with Real Madrid in their latest match. At one point in La Liga, they were 14 points clear from the second-place team and now they are only less than 5 points behind 2nd and 3rd place teams. They had a rollercoaster season but they still are the title favorites for this season.

Atletico Madrid key players
Atletico is one of the teams who would want to defend rather than attack. They specialize in counterattacks. In one of the matches, there were six defenders at the back. Atletico has a lot of key players because of which they have conceded the least goal till now and are at the top of the table. Their keeper Oblak has the cleanest sheets in La Liga. He has 15 clean sheets with seven more matches to go.
They and Sevilla have conceded the least goals at their home. They both have conceded 9 goals till now. Another key player in the attack is the transfer of the season, Luis Suarez. Barcelona would be regretting sending one of the best attackers to their rival club. He scored 19 goals and is in the top 5 scorers in La Liga.
In his first match, he came on as a substitute for the last 20 mins. In that time he scored 2 goals and assisted one. Marcos Llorente is also one of the key players. He played a major role in the comeback against Liverpool in the champions league knockout stages last year. The wonder boy Joao Felix hasn’t performed up to the mark because of his injuries. He will bounce back once he is fit.
