Atletico Madrid will begin their pre-season with a friendly against Numancia at Burgo de Osma on Wednesday. The La Liga outfit conceded their league title to Real Madrid last term by finishing third in the standings with 71 points from 38 games, two points behind second-placed Barcelona and 15 behind title-winners Real Madrid. The hosts on the other hand, last played in the La Liga in the 2008-09 season, finishing at the bottom of the table and got relegated to the second-tier of Spanish football. The Reds have remained in the lower leagues since then. 

Atletico Madrid are heading into the match on the back of a four-game unbeaten run and would be hoping to begin their pre-season on a positive note against a lower  division side. Star striker Luis Suarez has left the club and the Los Colchoneros are in search of a new centre-forward to fill the big shoes. Atletico will play two more friendlies against Manchester United and Juventus before kicking-off their new La Liga season away to Getafe on August 15. Numancia, on the other hand, will begin their 2022-23 Primera Division RFEF season at home against Intercity on August 28. Diego Martinez’ side are hoping to earn promotion to the second tier and would be looking to put up a good show against a much superior opponent, Atletico, in their first friendly of the summer.
