Log leaders Atlètico de Madrid are likely favourites to lift the trophy this season as their performance has been of very high quality this season. Atleti has not only restored the seven point advantage (Over 2nd place Real Madrid FC) at the top of Laliga Santander but their 3-1 win over Valencia CF on Sunday has seen them win their 7th consecutive match in the league.
Last night was a good night indeed for Diego Simione's men as Luis Suarez marked his 34th Birthday with another goal to help Atlètico de Madrid with a win over Valencia CF. Something like "When its your Birthday and the one who gives a gift to yours is you" .The Rojiblancos are now 10 points clear ahead of FC Barcelona (which is currently 3rd on the table) after 18 matches, with a game in hand over both teams (mentioned above) and with their next fixture being against the newly promoted side Cadiz FC on the 31st they might continue their 7match winning streak.
Luis Suarez has dominated the headlines since his move to Atlètico Madrid and obviously after their win over Valencia CF last night, However last night was an Atlèti man's show for Atletico Madrid as João Felix the former Benfica-striker who is known for his speed, creativity , finishing , technique and dribbling managed to place the ball behind the net.Though he's usually not on the starting eleven he can be a real threat for Diego Simione's side and the young Portuguese now has 6 goals in Laliga this season.
With most Atletico Madrid players showing their utmost good quality on the field do you think they'll be likely to snatch the title from Real Madrid FC ??
