Atletico Madrid vs Alaves 17/12/2017
Atletico are still unbeaten all season and will hope that record stays when they entertain the resurgent Alaves. They face an anxious wait though as the attacking duo of Antoine Griezmann and Saul Niguez will have to undergo fitness tests.
Depending on results going their way, Atletico could potentially move into second spot, three points behind leaders Barcelona.
Alaves, who have been propping up the table for a huge part of the season, have won back-to-back games since the appointment of Abelardo Fernandez as head coach. Striker Ibai Gomez is part of their resurrection, netting four goals in those wins.
This corresponding fixture last season ended in a crazy 1-1 draw. Both goals were scored in stoppage time. It continues a trend where three of the last five meetings between these two sides have ended as draws.
