Arguably now regarded as the outright favorites to capture this years Europa League, Atletico Madrid are back in action on Thursday night as they welcome Lokomotiv Moscow to the Spanish capital.
For the hosts on Thursday night, Diego Simeone’s Atletico side will be looking to immediately bounce back after their eight-match winning run came to an end at the Nou Camp last weekend. Although Los Colchoneros may have picked up their first defeat in La Liga defeat since December 2017, Atletico are currently enjoying a fine run of form. While they may sit nine points adrift of Barcelona, Simeone’s men are seven points ahead of arch-rivals Real and Champions League football looks all but guaranteed. With Antoine Griezmann scoring seven in his last three matches, Atletico rightly stand as the clear favorites.
Looking to cause an upset at Wanda Metropolitano on Thursday night, Yuri Semin’s Lokomotiv side will travel to Madrid in relatively high spirits. Although the Red and Greens have only won three of their last 10 matches in all competitions, Lokomotiv done a professional job in overcoming Nice in the round of 32.
