3. Atletico Madrid
The most exciting team to watch in Spain at the moment, however, are Atletico Madrid.
Atleti haven’t won the La Liga title since 1996 - but they have an excellent opportunity to end their barren spell this season.
Diego Simeone’s men - who play football in their manager’s image: controlled yet fiercely committed -currently possess a three-point lead at the top of the league table.
Many neutrals hope they can hold on until the end of the season - and providing they manage to avoid injuries to key players like Diego Costa then there’s no reason why they can’t do just that.
