Atlético’s calendar for this season with respect to that of the last one has some similarities. Atlético will return to the competition against Athletic, at home, on matchday 28, the same in which he faced a year ago against the Basque team (fell 2-0) and later he will travel to Pamplona. On matchday 29 of last year, he played against Alavés (won 0-4). Just like last year, he has to visit the Camp Nou, where he was defeated. He receives Valladolid, whom he did an exercise 1-0. And in this campaign he ends with two games that can be key: Getafe and Real Sociedad, the first outside and the last in the Wanda Metropolitano.The great difference, and the great incentive of this exercise is that Atlético continues in the Champions League and is among the eight best clubs in Europe. The Madrid team eliminated Liverpool and aspire to be in the final of the European tournament in Istanbul. But first of all, he must secure that fourth place, which is the great headache for Simeone and his footballers. Football begins its countdown to start training and gradually return to normal activity. And Atlético needs to prepare thoroughly for its great challenge: finish the season in the top four. Something that has been complicating Atlético day after day. Atlético is sixth, with 45 points, one less than Getafe, fifth, and Real Sociedad, fourth. And two less than Seville, who has 47 points. There are eleven days left and Atlético has to wipe a distance of two points. It seems within the reach of Simeone’s team but his numbers in the last season do not invite optimism. Atlético will have to improve a lot. Otherwise you may run into serious trouble going to the next Champions League.In the previous campaign, 2018-19 season, Atlético did not make a good end to the league year. Of the eleven final matches of LaLiga, the Cholo team lost three and tied two. He won 20 points out of 33 possible, thanks to his six wins and the two draws. Possibly this campaign will not be worth it to enter the Champions League if he adds the same number of points. Atletico, a year ago, lost to Athletic, Barcelona and Espanyorl. He tied in the last two days, against Sevilla and Levante. And he defeated Alavés, Girona, Celta, Eibar, Valencia and Valladolid. He scored 16 goals in favor and conceded 12.
