It’s another midday kickoff at the Vicente Calderón as Atleti host a Deportivo side that have only won once away from home all season.

Atleti will be looking to replicate the kind of performance that saw them beat Olympiacos 4-0 in the Champions League this week.

    Arda, what a beast. Unbelievable tekkers! Obviously the best player on the pitch so far. It’s a joy to watch him every time he is on the ball. What a beautiful player.

  • Arda gets his goal too! (or is it a Diakite own goal?)

  • Kris

    I think it’s Diakite, but all credit goes to the bearded magician.

  • Chewie

    Arda should consult Moya on how to style his beard. Otherwise he was the MOTM.
