Atletico de Madrid are in top form with Football observers claiming that perhaps they are currently the best team in Spanish Football. Their Spanish Cup win form at the end of the season has been carried on with the Spanish Super Cup were they drew twice with the all-mighty FC Barcelona squad. They are undefeated so far in the Spanish Liga.
They have excellent & inform players on all lines. Defensively perhaps the best in European Football at this moment, in the midfield they are solid & hard working & upfront the Costa-Villa duo is working magnificently. An aggressive & intense team that pressures their opponents leading them to make mistakes which lead to fast counter-attacks...& goals.
Youngsters like Goalkeeper Courtois is stopping everything along with midfielder Koke who has evolved into a mature player already called up & playing with the Spanish National Team. Forward Diego Costa is the "trending topic man" with 7 goals so far sharing the top goalscorer rankings. If there was ever a moment to win & knock off their pedestal their City rival it is tomorrow night in the Stadium of the "enemy".

Courtois, Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Luis Felipe, Thiago, Koke, Gabi, Arda Turan, Diego Costa & David Villa*
Historically most derby games end in draw. May the better team win tomorrow, I am going with Atletico de Madrid. Aupa Atleti!
