I love Atletico, but I think Sevilla would do better in CL. They had an awful start to the season, but lately they have played some great football. Atletico - as long as they have Pernia they aren't going to go anywhere in knockout stages. Serious.

Or maybe Spain should just be granted a 5th CL spot, like England once was. Difference is, neither of the bolded teams would choke, like Everton in qualifiers.

Atlético are actually still fourth considering they won against Sevilla twice this season, 4-3 at Vicente Calderón and 2-1 at Sanchéz Pizjúan ;)

They're going to re-build the defence next season and Pernía will be gone to Segunda B by then. Also, the midfield is probably getting a upgrade centrally as well.

If Atlético wins against Espanyol and then manages to beat Deportivo at Vicente Calderón, then it doesn't matter if they lose to Valencia away and Sevilla beats Athletic with 18-0. That's why a win away to Espanyol is so vital.

I hope Atleti don't choke, it's about time they got a CL spot. Don't like del Nido and Sevilla that much.

Plus Atleti in the CL means Javier Aguirre is staying and that's one less contender for Unai Emery :D

yeah i dont like Del Nido or Sevilla that much either, thats why i prefer Atletico.

if zoric is right and they will upgrade in defence especially then they should do well in the CL atleast past group stages. but you never know with this team, i mean they got knocked out by Bolton in UEFA.

You are all biased Barcelona-haters! We deserve this 4th CL spot -- Atletico and Sevilla keep your dirty fingers off!



EDIT: While being here: Atletico. Even though Barcelona and Atletico don't have friendly relationships, I do like them. Not as much as Athletic Bilbao, but still. I'll follow they games if they play CL, that's something I was never interested to do with Valencia or Sevilla.

Atléti has already signed Heitinga, now they're looking to sign another two or three defenders and a central midfielder. They wouldn't go far with the current squad, that's for sure.

The problem against Bolton was that they had 8 players out with either injuries or suspensions, 6 of those were starters. But yes, Atlético is not very reliable.

I hope Racing manage to get the CL spot but there's a 5% chance of that happening.

If Atletico get the CL spot they'll do their job and get knocked out in the qualifiers:D

Racing, pointless team, pointless club. They should go back to where they belong.

I hope Atletico get it, who doesn't like Atletico? Who doesn't feel sorry for this sorry excuse of a big club?
