Match Preview

A draw at Girona extended Atlético Madrid’s unbeaten La Liga (LL) run to 11 (W5, D6) in their worst start to a season since 2011/12. Regardless, they return to the Metropolitano this week as one of just two clubs (alongside Alaves) to have not yet lost at home this season (W5, D2).
Yet to be tested multiple times at home against top-eight opposition, the capital giants have conceded just four goals at home so far – which is the joint-second lowest tally in LL – while also finding the net in each match here.
Meanwhile, Alavés are enjoying their best start to a LL season since their return to the top flight. However, they bring a recent away record of W1, L3 into this contest, and are yet to win or draw away against anyone higher than Celta Vigo (13th) in the table.
Alavés have begun away matches particularly strongly, with a goal difference of GF 3, GA 0 in the 0-15 minute period of road trips, and could be a good match for an Atlético team that have conceded just one first-half goal in seven LL home fixtures.
Players to watch: With three goals and three assists in his last six league and European starts, Antoine Griezmann remains in hot form. So too does Jony, who has scored three goals and an assist in his last five appearances for Alavés.
Stat attack: All but one of Atlético’s last eight LL games have produced two goals or fewer.
Both teams have scored in all but one of Atlético’s last six LL matches.
The last 11 H2H clashes have all seen under 2.5 total goals scored, with nine of them producing 0-0 half time scorelines.
