Diego Simeone‘s side have looked back to their best this season as they look to win a first league title since 2014 in the months ahead.
Los Rojiblancos currently have a five-point lead over rivals Real Madrid, but Simeone’s leaders have two games in hand over their cross city foes.
According to the survey, as reported by Diario AS, which uses a game simulator to predict results for future matches, Atletico will win the title with a total of 81 points this season.
However, the most eye-catching part of the prediction is the expected challenge posed by Barcelona in the weeks ahead.
Ronald Koeman‘s side picked up a seventh successive league win last weekend, and the study suggest they will end the campaign in second place, just three points behind Atletico.
