Its only mole has been the Copa del Rey, with eliminations in January against Girona last season (two draws), Sevilla in 2017-18 and Barcelona in 2013-14. Since 2011, Atleti has started the years in two ways. Sometimes the Cup (as in 2017-18 and 2016-17) and other times in LaLiga, all remaining. In the Cup he always won and by a win, 0-4 at Lleida and 0-2 at Las Palmas. In the League, he tied last season, 2012-13 and 2011-12 against Sevilla, Mallorca and Málaga. The rest, only victories.Twice the Levante … and in both victory Al Levante, the rival with which Atlético will start this 2020, has already been found twice more Simeone since 2011 and both happened the same: Atlético won.
