With a La Liga win against Real Valladolid on Saturday, Atletico Madrid could claim their 11th league title and their second under Diego Simeone after the 2013/14 season.
The Argentine tactician could become the third coach to win two titles in the competition for the club after Ricardo Zamora in 1939/40 and 1940/41, and Helenio Herrera in 1949/50 and 1950/51.
Much of the pre-match talk has been on Atletico, which is understandable as the capital giants look to secure the title, but there is no question that this is also a huge match for a Valladolid side looking to stay in the division.
A record of five wins, 16 draws and 16 defeats from 37 matches has seen the strugglers collect just 31 points, which has left them in 19th position in the table, two points from 17th-placed Huesca, who host Valencia on Saturday evening.
The White and Violets have finished 16th and 13th in their two seasons since returning to this level of football, but it has been a difficult campaign, and they will need to win on Saturday to stand any chance of remaining in the top flight.
Sergio Gonzalez‘s side will enter this match off the back of a 4-1 defeat at Real Sociedad on May 16, while the relegation-threatened side have not been victorious in the league since the start of March.
Valladolid’s home form this season is the second-worst in the league, picking up just 16 points from 18 matches, but Atletico have dropped points in eight of their 18 La Liga games on their travels, and the hosts are certainly capable of causing problems despite their recent struggles.
