Atletico Madrid ended February with a defeat to their rivals Barcelona and began March without a victory as they settled for a 1-1 draw in the midweek fixture. However, they are still in the 4th place behind Sevilla but now they are 11 points behind the new leaders Barcelona. If they not manage to win this game they may be out of the 4th spot if Real Sociedad wins their own game. As regards team news, central defender Diego Godin is suspended so Gimenez should partner Savic in the heart of defence. Saul returns from a ban and should start wide on the right. Spanis striker Fernando Torres is a doubt after being knocked unconscious on Thursday night in Galicia.
