Diego Simeone’s men know that if they win their last three games of the season they will take home the title for the first time since 2014. However standing in their way are Imanol Alguacil’s talented Real Sociedad side.

Atlético Madrid vs Real Sociedad build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Atlético Madrid knew the one result they could not suffer at the Camp Nou was a defeat, and they played well to avoid it. Diego Simeone’s men controlled the first-half with an organised press that starved the Barcelona forwards of service. Then in the second-half we got some old fashioned Atleti rearguard action. The title is now in their own hands and three wins will guarantee it, they can even afford to draw one of the games as long as Real Madrid also drop points.
Real Sociedad come into the game off the back of three wins in their last five. A terrible start to 2021 really put them out of contention for a Champions League place (despite being fifth they are a massive 15 points behind Sevilla in fourth) but they will want to finish as high as possible to ensure Europa League football for next season and will go all-out to get a result here against Atleti. However Atleti have kept four clean sheets in their last five matches in La Liga, so best of luck there.
- Atlético Madrid (vs Barcelona): Oblak; Savic, Felipe, Hermoso; Trippier, Llorente, Koke, Carrasco; Correa, Lemar; Suárez.
- Real Sociedad (vs Elche): Remiro; Gorosabel, Elustondo, Le Normand, Monreal; Guevara, Guridi; Januzaj, David Silva, Oyarzabal; Isak.
Atleti had to make do without José Giménez against Barcelona as the Uruguayan was only fit enough for the bench but he should be ready to start against La Real. Unfortunately Thomas Lemar’s ankle injury (suffered at the Camp Nou) rules him out. Meanwhile, La Real are still without midfield maestro Mikel Merino but will welcome back Igor Zubeldia who had been missing with injury.

Player to watch: Luis Suárez (Atlético Madrid)
Luis Suárez has been superb in La Liga this season, driving the Atleti title challenge through sheer spite and rage at former club Barcelona who thought so little of him they had no issue sending him to a title rival. Suárez has cooled off lately, but remains as potent as ever and is routinely effective against La Real. He has five goals and five assists in 11 matches against the Basque side and will no doubt find a way to score or create the winning goal at the Wanda Metropolitano and take Atleti one step closer to the title.
