Atletico Madrid & The Art Of Narrow Wins

Of the 77 away victories Atletico have managed under the Argentine, as many as 29 ended in a 1-0 result, while 28 of their 110 home wins came with the same result.

To put it in percentage terms, 38 per cent of their away wins and 25 per cent of their home triumphs ended 1-0.

Los Rojiblancos ended the 2019 calendar year with three successive wins against Lokomotiv Moscow, Osasuna and Real Betis.

Although their centre-back duo of Stefan Savic and Jose Gimenez have been sidelined for several matches, summer signings Mario Hermoso and Felipe Monteiro successfully filled in their teammates’ shoes.

In the last five games, Atletico have conceded two goals; one from Lionel Messi in their 1-0 defeat at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano and a last-minute consolation goal by Marc Bartra against Real Betis.
