A disaster last weekend as Athletico Madrid lost to Levante. luckily for Madrid though they return home to the Vincent Cauldron Stadium where they are unbeaten this season. Diego Simeone has done an unbelievable job this season and Athletico are on the verge of history with a league title and Champions League title within their grasp. A mix of terrific defending, team work and attacking prowess has been a successful mix. At the back Courtois has had a terrific season in goal, the young Belgian on loan from Chelsea will surely end up back at the English club next season but he has been nothing short of brilliant for Athletico all season. Up front Diego Costa has had a career year and the rumours abound he will be bought by none other than Chelsea in the off season with twenty seven goals this season Costa has been instrumental in Atheltico's success. The home crowd will be well up for the game tomorrow and Atheltico will be looking to get off to a good start early to settle any nerves.
Malaga almost appear to have given up on the season, a win against Villareal three weeks ago brought Malaga to safety and another season in La Liga but the club has struggled all season. Schuster the german manager of Malaga has had his work cut out this season, goals have been in scare supply and the team have spread the few they have scored among five with Roque Santa Cruz, Samu and Juanmi all netting five while playing up top and Camacho adding a couple from midfield. Willie Caballero has been the rock at the back in goals for Malaga and he will have his work cut out to keep out Athletico tomorrow.
I'm on Athletico here to get the win, I think they will do it in style as well. Their last home game, an unbeaten season in the Vincent Cauldron stadium and one point from a league title if Athletico can get the win tomorrow. I am going to take the Rojobancos to win by two or more at evens. I just cant see anything other than a comfortable win for the home side. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
