Osasuna game Simeone's sole focus

Atletico Madrid could be crowned La Liga champions this weekend if results go their way but Diego Simeone is focused only on his team's match against Osasuna and not the permutations elsewhere.

Simeone's Atletico Madrid, who are targeting their first top-flight title since 2014, are 1.22 to beat Osasuna, who are 13.00 to win, with the draw on Sunday 6.00.

The capital outfit can guarantee they will win the La Liga title with victories over both Osasuna and Real Valladolid next week, with them 1.20 to top the standings.

Calmly but surely - to continue in our line without going from game to game.

But as the pressure intensifies, they must be wary of local rivals Real, who would finish top in the event of both clubs having the same number of points due to their superior head-to-head record.

Atleti lead Los Blancos by two points with third-placed Barcelona currently four points adrift of top spot. Barca can only win La Liga if they win their remaining fixtures and Atletico take a maximum of one point and Real a maximum of four.

Los Colchoneros have been top of the tree at the end of each matchday since early November and have clung on to the summit with four wins in their last six assignments.

And although their fate could be determined by results elsewhere this weekend, Simeone is adamant he and his coaching staff are only concentrating on one game at a time.

Speaking to Marca before the match with Osasuna, Simeone said: "We always follow the same line - we are concerned with Osasuna's game, a team that has competed very well historically and will do so tomorrow as well."

Asked how he and the coaching staff will approach the match, he added: "Calmly but surely - to continue in our line without going from game to game."
