When the Spanish Primera season began, a team from Madrid was expected to challenge Barcelona for the league title, but that team was Real Madrid, not Atletico Madrid.
Radamel Falcao has done something about that, driving Atletico Madrid to an unbeaten season to date. They are currently tied with Barcelona atop La Liga, eight points clear of Real Madrid. Atletico faces a dangerous Valencia side they will be hoping to knock off to keep the pressure on Barcelona.
In England, Robin Van Persie faces Arsenal for the first time since leaving the Gunners for Manchester United in the summer when Arsenal visits Old Trafford this morning. Arsenal needs a win to boost their top four aspirations, while Manchester United needs a win to keep pressure on Chelsea for the top spot in England.
