Under the eccentric Argentine coach Diego Simeone, the Rojiblancos have emerged as a serious contender and third major force in La Liga. In the new Wanda Metropolitano Arena which has a capacity of 68.456, the fans of the “mattress makers” always ensure a fantastic atmosphere. Atletico also hosted the 2019 Champions League Final between Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspurs.
There have been some of the best players in this club, like Radamel Falcao, Fernando Torres, Simeone, Kun Agüero, Diego Forlán, Felipe Luis, Lucas Hernández, Thibaut Courtois, Diego Costa, Jan Oblak or Luis Suárez.
Madrid is not only worth a trip for Atlético or Real. The capital of the Kingdom of Spain, located in the central highlands, is boiling day and night and offers a variety of attractions.
