Atletico Madrid will play Athletic Club in the Spanish La Liga on Saturday looking to claim another three points to maintain their lead at the top of the table. The game is scheduled to start at 3 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Real Madrid's fall from grace over recent weeks has seen them overtaken by local rivals Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga, and with less than 10 games to go in the season now, a strong run of form to the end of the season could amazingly allow Atletico to claim the title ahead of Barcelona and Real.
Atletico have been in amazing form all season – for much of it many pundits have been waiting for Atletico's surge to come to an end and for them to fall out of the title race, leaving it as a usual two horse race between Real and Barcelona that fans have come to expect.
However, Atletico have not let up and find themselves rewarded by being top as the final run in approaches. They have only lost three of their last 32 games in La Liga, but today must travel to the San Mames to face another team in good form.
Athletic Club are unbeaten in their last six games and they will be hoping to derail Atletico's title ambitions by taking them down today.
But history is on Atletico's side, as they have won 14 of the past 15 games between the sides, and given them form this season they will be confident that they can again claim all three points and remain at the top of the La Liga table.
