Diego Simeone’s side has been a contender for many years, but have found it difficult to end the duopoly of Real Madrid and Barcelona as the best team in Spain.
A strong start to the season has put Atletico Madrid in a good position to challenge this season, while they also secured qualification from their Champions League group behind holders Bayern Munich.
Atleti won 10 of the first 12 games in 2020-21 before coming crashing down to earth with a 2-0 defeat at the hands of local rivals Real Madrid in December.
However, a draw in the return fixture against Real in March leaves them in a great position heading into the last games of the season.
