Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla Match preview
Unbeaten in the last five fixtures, including a 1-0 triumph over Liverpool in the Champions League fixture, Athletico Madrid will be the one to look out in the clash.
The host had their previous encounter on the road. They faced Espanyol in which both teams scored a goal each to share the spoils in the game.
Diego Simeone and his boys have only lost to Barcelona in their last 22 home matches across all major competitions in their schedule.
Competing in the Europa League this season, Sevilla is not so bad. They have a two-point lead over the host in the La Liga table.
The visitor is on a five-game unbeaten streak following a 3-2 win at home against the likes of Osasuna in their previous league clash.
Julen Lopetegui’s men have won only four of their recent ten away fixtures in their schedule. After four winless games, they won against Getafe in their last outing.
It has to be noted that Los Rojiblancos has not lost to Sevilla in their last four h2h meetings. So, the odds will be against the traveling side in Madrid.
Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla Prediction
Dropping points in their away games have been the problem for Diego Simeone this season. Even though they are below Sevilla, Athletico Madrid will be a bigger fish to fry at Madrid for the guests.
Besides, Los Nervionenses does not show promise in their away fixtures. Julen Lopetegui’s men have lost 4 of their 13 away games, and two losses came within the recent three trips on the road.
Having lost only one of their 13 home matches in the league with a five-game unbeaten streak, Los Rojiblancos shows more composure at home.

The home team has averaged 1.4 goals per match at league home matches. This shows potential for over 1.5 goals in ninety minutes at 1.50 odds as the best bet for the punters.
