While Atletico Madrid are some way short of their city rivals, Simeone's side has proven to be a spoke in the wheel of too many teams to simply write off, especially at home. Since August, Atletico have only lost once at the Metropolitano across all competitions - against Real in September's derby. However, Simeone's side have seemingly lost their parsimonious edge this season, waiting until after Christmas for their first home clean sheet of the league season.
