After the Madrid Derby, they will play against Sociedad and then go for the 2022 FIFA Club World Cup, keeping in mind the clash against Liverpool in the Champions League playoffs.
Atletico Madrid is behind in the title race and would be looking to win the Spanish Copa del Rey in what appears to be Diego Simeone’s last season at the club.
