home meeting between Atletico Madrid that is taking the second place
in the champion’s race against the middle level team Getafe is
opening the New Year’s program of the current Spanish season.
Actually, this is also the capital derby, but, of course, isn’t as
popular as an annual two-matches battle between Atletico and Real.
race of La Liga
to the 18th
matchday the hosts of the Stadio Wanda Metropolitano have scored 36
points (+10=6-1) and now are taking the second place, being behind
Barcelona which has moved far forward with nine points. But, if to
think about Diego Simeone’s team as the main challenger for the
vice-champion title then the Mattressers have a certain advantage
over the closest opponents:
– 45, Atletico – 36, Valencia – 34, Real – 31, Sevilla – 29…
Diego Simeone’s team is ahead of Valencia with two points. And during
the first New Year’s round the Mattressers and the Bats are hosting
weaker rivals- Getafe and Girona. And here new victories of the main
challengers for the second final place are quite obvious. The
vice-champion of Europe 2016 that is dreaming of taking the second
position is especially motivated today.
