Atletico Madrid vs Malaga

Atletico will now get to enjoy some home comfort as they get set to play at their new ground, the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, for the first time. They have played their first four games of the campaign on the road, including a goalless draw at Roma in the Champions League.

Despite excitement mounting at the prospect of experiencing the gleaming 67,000-seater venue on a matchday, Simeone is also making sure he remains focused on the task at hand - picking up three points in LaLiga.

"We've been playing away games and it's a great sense of happiness to come home and be with our fans, which we definitely need," he said.

Atletico Madrid celebrated the unveiling of their new Wanda Metropolitano stadium with victory over Malaga on Saturday night.

But Antoine Griezmann's second-half goal was enough to give Atletico the win, and mark a historical day with a much-needed three points.
