Atlético de Madrid begins the year at home against the last-place team
Atlético de Madrid will begin the new year by receiving last-place team Nastic of Tarragona, which has only 8 points. The two teams have faced each other three times in the top flight, and in all of them, Atletico has come out the winner. In 1947/48, Atleti demolished the Catalan team 5-2. A year later they were only able to win by the slim margin of 1-0 and in 1949/50 they scored a convincing 5-1 victory. Atletico de Madrid and Nastic played once in Second Division, in 2001/2002, and the match ended in a 3-3 draw. This season Nastic has only won once away from home, losing the rest of the games, which makes them, along with Deportivo, the worst visiting team in the First Division.
