Moreover, they are also on an 8-fixture winning streak at home, and they had also won 16 of their previous 17 such matches. In the process they had also found the back of the net an astonishing 38 times.
On the other hand, their counterparts Athletico are on a 5-game winning streak and they had scored a total of 10 goals from their past 4 fixtures combined. Do also note that they had won 10 of their last 13 games.
In addition, they had registered wins in 5 of their previous 6 road trips and they had scored or more goals in 3 of their last 5 away games as well.
