The hosts have not lost any of their last six games against Real Sociedad in La Liga (W3 D3). Moreover, Diego Simeone's men have made the Wanda Metropolitano a fortress as they have won nine of their last 10 fixtures at home in the league.
Meanwhile, Sociedad also head into this fixture in good form as they have not lost any of their last seven games in the league (W5 D2), the longest ongoing run in the competition.
Atletico have already booked their Champions League slot for next season and Sociedad can also do so if they win on Sunday. With two games remaining, they are currently in the fourth spot with a five-point lead over Villarreal.
However, to get the better of the Rojiblancos they will need to put their best foot forward as Simeone has lost just one of his 11 La Liga home games against Real Sociedad (W7 D3), a 0-1 defeat in March 2013, being this the only game in which his side failed to score at home against the Basques side.
