They were far from their best against Atletico and ended up losing 3-1 on the night. Carlo Ancelotti's men had more of the ball, and they took more shots on goals. But they were not clinical enough on the night. And, the Merengues will now look to bounce back when they host Las Palmas.

The visitors had failed to win a game out of their first five outings in the 2023/24 season. However, they managed to end their winless run last time out when they squared up against Granada. Three points from the last outing have helped them climb up to the 15th place with five points in their six matches.
