Atlético de Madrid finally catches up with LaLiga after almost seven months from the start of the competition. The colchoneros receive this afternoon (at 7:00 p.m.) the visit of Athletic in the Wanda Metropolitano to recover their last pending match, corresponding to matchday 18, which was postponed due to the storm Filomena . Sunday's derby left a bittersweet taste in the rojiblancos, who had in their hand sentenced Madrid in LaLiga, but if they achieved victory this afternoon, Simeone's men would get an eight-point lead with the whites and six with Barcelona. For their part, the people of Bilbao arrive with morale through the roof after qualifying for the final of the Copa del Rey and with a great run of results. Since Marcelino's arrival, the lions have only lost two games, both against Barcelona, and they watch the European positions closely. The victory this afternoon would put them one point behind Villarreal, 7th. Iñigo Martínez, suspended, will be the only casualty of a team that will seek to conquer the Atlético field for the first time in ten years. Follow the minute by minute of the meeting live:
