Atlético Madrid Club Info
Atlético Madrid or simply known as Atlético or Atleti, is a Spanish professional football club based in Madrid that plays in La Liga. Atlético Madrid are the third most successful club in Spanish football behind Real Madrid and Barcelona. Throughout their history the club has been known by a number of nicknames, including Los Colchoneros (“The Mattress Makers”), Atleti and Los Indios, which some attribute to the club’s signing several South American players after the restrictions on signing foreign players were lifted.
Atleti’s latest success was on 22nd May 2021 with a 2–1 win at the José Zorrilla Stadium against Valladolid, this secured the La Liga title for Atlético, only seven years after their last triumph. Atlético have never won the Champions League, although they have reached the final on three occasions, losing narrowly to Real Madrid in two of those.
