Atletico Madrid vs Valencia head-to-head record
The head-to-head record favors Atletico Madrid, but only by the slightest of margins. Los Rojiblancos boast five more wins in this encounter than Valencia. Furthermore, Los Ches are without a win in their last six encounters with Valencia.
Games played: 172
Atletico wins: 66
Valencia wins: 61
This will be an interesting game to watch as two deadly sides from Spain will lock horns. For Atletico Madrid, the task is simple: win this home game with the hope of either Real Madrid or Barcelona, or possibly both, slipping up.
The Blaugrana sit a point ahead of Simeone's men. That gap widens to three points when compared to Zidane's table-toppers. Atletico's attack has been inconsistent as of late and will need to pick up their level if they wish to avoid losing ground.
The Spanish giants have failed to score in four of their last seven games in all competitions, which is a bad statistic for a side boasting the likes of Diego Costa and the $130M signing Joao Felix. El Cholo will need to find a solution for this if his goal is to earn all three points.
