Diego Simeone's new and improved Atlético Madrid on title trail againThis is not a repeat of 2013-14: Atlético are playing expansive football and cemented their favourites tag against Barcelona
As Barcelona and Real Madrid continue to misfire after having their purse strings cut by the COVID-19 pandemic, Real Sociedad have risen to the top of La Liga by embracing a defined style of play and trusting in homegrown talent. As well as leading the table since mid-October, Sociedad are arguably Spain's most exciting team right now, scoring an unbeatable 21 goals this term yet with the second best defence, conceding only four times. The expansive side is led by the likes of World Cup winner David Silva, former Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj and Sweden forward Alexander Isak, plus homegrown talent such as Spain forward Mikel Oyarzabal, who is the league's top scorer with six goals.
