Atletico Madrid vs Alaves build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

Just when it seemed Atletico Madrid were running away with the Spanish title, Simeone’s men have run into a couple of stumbling blocks. Across their previous eight La Liga outings, they’ve picked up only three wins, though suffering just one loss. This, coupled with Barcelona returning to form, has cut their lead to four points with 11 matches remaining. At home it’s also been a struggle of late. Before running out 2-1 winners over Athletic Bilbao, they could only manage to collect two points from six available.

Normally whoever is facing Atletico following their Champions League exit would fancy inflicting more pain on Simeone’s men but Alavés aren’t exactly firing on all cylinders. The latest visitors to Estadio Wanda Metropolitano are entrenched in a relegation battle and come into this match looking to end a five-match winless streak. Having suffered four consecutive defeats, Alavés were held to a 1-1 draw at Cádiz last time out. On the road, they’ve failed to win any of their last eight away games (including six defeats) though Abelardo’s last win came at Real Madrid (2-1) in late November.

  • Atletico Madrid (vs Chelsea): Oblak; Trippier, Savic, Giménez, Lodi; Llorente, Ñíguez, Koke, Carrasco; João Félix, Suárez.
  • Alaves (vs Cádiz): Pacheco; Aguirregabiria, Laguardia, Lejeune, Duarte; Pellistri, García, Pina, Rioja; Méndez, Joselu.

Suspended duo Felipe Monteiro and Joao Felix are the only Atletico Madrid players missing this weekend. Alaves have their own banned pair in the guise of Tomas Pina and Manu Garcia, while Rodrigo Ely is in the physio room.

Player to watch: Luis Suárez (Atletico Madrid)

A second Pichichi Trophy looked to be on the cards for Luis Suárez until he could muster just two goals across his last seven La Liga outings. This, coupled with former Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi’s resurgence in front of goal, has seen the Atlético marksman drop into second place and three goals behind the record seven-time winner. He should nevertheless relish Alavés’ visit to Spain’s capital as in eight previous league appearances, the Uruguayan international has registered seven goals past El Glorioso as well as scoring at least one goal in each of his past four meetings.
