With big names in the likes of FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Atletico Madrid playing in the league, La Liga is one of the most popular leagues to be played in the world.

Luis Suarez: The 34-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers the footballing world has ever witnessed. His unmatched performances and impact in almost all the teams he has represented make him one of the key players on the side. Suarez brings to the side his experience from playing alongside Leo Messi during his time in Barcelona and the premier league where he represented Liverpool during the initial stages of his career. The player was one of the key contributors to the league victory in the previous season and is predicted to continue his form.
Antoine Griezmann: The french national forward has recently moved to his so-called home club on loan from FC Barcelona. The player was immensely praised by the Atleti fans as he has helped the club beat the dominant rivals numerous times in the past. The move of Griezmann back to Atleti should help him bring back his lacking form and is therefore considered to be one of the decisive players.

It is to the point that they are preferred over FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. Considering the stats and individual performances of players, we predict Atletico Madrid to win this upcoming encounter.
