Atletico Madrid: The first big week of Atletico Madrid’s season
Atletico Madrid They face Real Sociedad and Juventus
Atletico Madrid’s early season form has seen them spend the international break at the top of LaLiga Santander with a 100 percent record.
However, tough tests lie just around the corner for Diego Simeone‘s men.
A trip to San Sebastian on Saturday to face Real Sociedad is a tricky prospect before a much-anticipated reunion with Juventus at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday.
A win against La Real would maintain Atletico‘s perfect start in LaLiga Santander going into fixtures against Celta Vigo, Real Mallorca and Real Madrid.
A slight concern is that nine of Simeone‘s players will have limited time to prepare for this game, as a result of their international excursions.
Once their visit to San Sebastian is over, Atletico can start to prepare for the visit of Juventus on Wednesday as the two clubs get set to renew the animosities after last season’s epic Champions League duel.
