Diego Simeone’s side has been a contender for many years, but found it difficult to end the duopoly of Real Madrid and Barcelona as the best team in Spain.
A strong start to the season has put Atletico Madrid in a good position to challenge this season, while the team also secured qualification from its Champions League group behind holders Bayern Munich.
Atleti won 10 of the first 12 games in 2020-21 before coming crashing down to earth with a 2-0 defeat at the hands of local rivals Real Madrid in December.
However, a draw in the return fixture against Real in March leaves the Madrid club in a great position heading into the last games of the season.
