Atletico Madrid are dreaming of winning their first La Liga title since their remarkable 2014 triumph, we take a look at some of their key dates this season.

Los Rojiblancos face an incredibly tough start to their campaign with a trip to the Mestalla first up to take on Valencia, who finished last season in fourth.

They will travel to the Bernabeu to face city rivals Real Madrid on 30September with the return scheduled for Atletico’s Wanda Metropolitano on 10 February.

Diego Simeone’s side host Barcelona on matchday 13 (25 November) with the return match at the Camp Nou on matchday 31 (7 April).
