Atletico Madrid ran out 2-0 winners against Athletic Bilbao on Matchday 10 of the LaLiga season and find themselves at the fourth spot in the table. Diego Simeone's boys have taken 19 points from the first 10 games in the Spanish top-flight and are embroiled in a title race with Real Madrid, Barcelona and this season's surprise package - Granada. Los Rojiblancos face lower-ranked Deportivo Alaves on Matchday 11 of the LaLiga. Here is our take on both teams along with the predicted line-up.

Atletico Madrid are currently without star summer signing - Joao Felix. However, they have looked like a force to reckon with this season with former Real Madrid and Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata impressing in recent weeks. Atletico Madrid take on Deportivo Alaves who suffered a disheartening 4-1 loss to Villareal on Matchday 10. We reckon Diego Simeone and Co. will bring home all three points from their away game on October 29, 2019.
Deportivo Alaves predicted line-up
Fernando Pacheco (GK), Martin Aguirregabiria, Victor Laguardia,Lisandro Magallan, Ruben Duarte, Aleix Vidal, Manu Garcia, Mubarak Wakaso, Lucas Rioja, Lucas Perez, Joselu.
Atletico Madri d predicted line-up
Jan Oblak (GK) Kieran Trippier, Felipe, Mario Hermoso, Renan Lodi, Koke, Thomas Partey, Saul Niguez, Vitolo, Diego Costa, Alvaro Morata.
