Atlético Madrid form and stats

5 wins, 8 draws and 3 losses. That’s the product of Atlético Madrid playing as the away team in the La Liga this season. In general it has been a productive period now for Atlético as they haven't lost any of their last ten games. It could be a hat trick of victories away for Atlético Madrid, as they have won on their previous two travels.

Impressive finishing from Diego Costa and Saúl Ñíguez secured the home win 2-1 against Deportivo Alavés in their previous game. Prior to that result Atlético won their away game at Levante. The scoreline was 1-0.

Diego Costa came off the bench to score the winning goal in the match against Deportivo Alavés last time out, making the manager D. Simeone feel like a tactical genius.

We have checked recent matches where Atlético have had similar odds to win. Win-draw-lose statistics from those two games were one victory, zero draws and one defeat.

A quick return to home after this game, as Atlético are hosting Mallorca in the La Liga only three days away.

Atlético are scoring more than one goal per away game on average, having accumulated 18 away goals from 16 games (in the league). They concede less than a goal on average per away game (13 so far).
