Atleti’s 10 year Mestalla jinx

Atletico Madrid must bring a 10 year winless streak at Mestalla to an end if they are to continue their streak of success tomorrow.

Diego Simeone's side are on a run of 13 consecutive victories in all competitions and are level with Barcelona at the top of La Liga, making them clear favourites for the Saturday night showdown with struggling Valencia.

However the Rojiblancos have failed to win at Mestalla since the 2002-03 season, when Carlos Aguilera gave them a 1-0 win. The only ground where Atleti have a worse record is the Bernabeu, where they haven't won since October 1999.
