Atletico Madrid are noting some underwhelming results at the beginning of this season, with Atletico sitting at fourth in La Liga.
Atletico scored just 12 goals in the same amount of matches.
Los Colchones are mightily struggling with efficiency after losing Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona this summer.

Even the good early signs from Joao Felix didn’t help as the Portuguese picked up an injury.
Atletico confirmed their bad form by losing to Leverkusen last night.
Simeone took responsibility for the recent bad results, saying:
“The first person responsible is me, it’s clear that there’s something I need to improve.
“When words are repeated, they don’t have meaning, you have to have facts.”
Despite the bad start, Simeone and his men still have the opportunity to challenge for the title.
The tied leading trio is just a point ahead of Simeone’s team.
