When Atletico Madrid won a La Liga and King's Cup double in 1996, hopes were high it would mark the beginning of a golden period for the club known as the "mattress makers".Atletico won their first La Liga title since that 1996 triumph and reached the final of the Champions League, losing 4-1 to city rivals Real Madrid, and promptly sold top scorer Diego Costa and full-back Filipe Luis to Chelsea.Atletico have drawn two of their opening four La Liga games this season, including Saturday's 2-2 stalemate at home to Celta Vigo, and are trailing early leaders Barcelona, who have won all of their matches and have a perfect 12 points.
