Atletico Madrid kick off their La Liga campaign against Las Palmas who were promoted from the Segunda Division via the play-offs after finishing fourth.
Diego Simeone's men have established themselves as a real powerhouse in Spanish football in the past three seasons and after a positive summer transfer window they will fancy themselves for a tilt at the title after failing to defend the La Liga crown last season.
Their biggest summer signing, Jackson Martinez, starts today and he will be tasked with firing the goals alongside last season's top goalscorer with 22 La Liga goals, Antoine Griezmann.
Oliver Torres re-joins Atletico after a season on-loan with Porto and has been rewarded with a start. So too has Filipe Luis who was re-signed by Madrid after joining Chelsea at the beginning of last season.
