Atletico Madrid host Alaves at the Wanda Metropolitano in La Liga this evening in yet another crucial match. Los Rojiblancos crashed out of the Champions League with a whimper at Chelsea midweek, and are under serious pressure from both Real Madrid and Barcelona in the title race.

Both are unbeaten in their last five, with the former winning three of those five and the latter four. Atletico are three points clear of Madrid with a game in hand and four clear of Barcelona with the same games played, meaning the Blaugrana could move a single point behind Atletico should they beat Real Sociedad tonight and Atletico lose to Alaves.

Alaves, on the other hand, are fighting for their lives. They sit in 19th, in the relegation zone, just two points off bottom-placed Huesca and having lost four of their last five. A win for them would be titanic, as it would see them jump out of the bottom three and into the relative safety of 17th at Elche’s expense.
