Simeone likes the October international break
As 'AS' reports, in the last seven seasons as Atletico Madrid coach, the Madrid side have won four times and drawn two. Or what is the same, they have only lost once after the October international break.
They are hoping that good run will continue against Valencia. In the last two campaigns, 'Los Colchoneros' drew.
The only season they lost straight after the October international break was in the 2013-14 season. Espanyol beat Atletico Madrid.
In Simeone's seven seasons, they have won four (against Real Sociedad twice, Espanyol and Granada) and drawn twice (v Barca and Villarreal).
Once this international break concludes, Atletico will face Valencia. It remains to be seen whether Simeone and Atletico add to their impressive record straight after this international break.
