Defensively rock-solid Spanish giants Atletico Madrid welcomes Malaga to their intimidating Vicente Calderon stadium on Apr. 23 in a clash that the Rojiblancos just have to win to stay in contention for La Liga. They’re neck and neck with Barcelona at the top, so anything but a win would be disastrous with only 4 games left to go. Can Atletico do it? Click down for the live stream to see!
Atletico have the best defense in the world. Period. At home they’ve conceded just 7 goals in La Liga, and have only suffered one defeat thanks to the centre back partnership of Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez. These two know how to snuff out the best strikers, just ask Barcelona’s famed trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.
Malaga is sitting in mid-table in 9th spot in La Liga and are more than capable of upsetting the odds with a sneak away win. Their biggest goal threat will come from Charles Dias, who will be looking to get behind Atletico’s tough back line. Will he be able to muster it? It’s hard to tell.
Atletico kept up their pursuit of Barcelona at the top with a hard-fought 1-0 win away at Athletic Bilbao in a tricky game where most teams tend to slip up. Fernando Torres was the hero for Atletico, scoring from close range in the Apr. 20 match-up.
Atletico need to win this, and the pressure is on in front of their home fans to get the win to stay above cross-city rivals Real Madrid and stay at the top with Barcelona. A narrow win could be on the cards for Atletico, maybe 1-0.
HollywoodLifers, will Atletico get the home win to stay up, close and personal with Barcelona at the top. Or will Malaga share the spoils and upset the title race? Tell us what you think the score will be below!
