Atletico Madrid vs Deportivo Alaves Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview of the Spanish LaLiga match on Saturday, 27 June 2020. Kick off 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Diego Simeone’s men have been the sole team that’s been able to challenge the two heavyweights in the Spanish top flight this past decade. They have especially been on fire since the season resumed after the Covid-19 break.
El Glorioso meanwhile are placed in the mid-table, and by the looks of things, they do not stand a good chance to make it to Europe, nor do they are in immediate danger of getting relegated. This particular situation should reduce their motivation to give their 100% on the pitch going forward.
Moreover, Simeone’s men have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years. Couple that with the fact that Simeone’s men are on an impressive run at the Wanda Metropolitano, whereas their counterparts have been struggling on the road for quite some time.
Likely, expect an Atleti win this Saturday.
Atletico Madrid vs Alaves: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Simeone’s men are unbeaten against this opponent since 2003.
- El Glorioso have scored a total of one goal in the past six games.
- The combined scoreline of the past two wins for Simeone’s men is 7-0.
- Since 1998, only once have Simeone’s men lost at home.
- The last time these two locked horns here, the hosts won 3-0.
Atletico Madrid vs Alaves: Prediction
Simeone’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Levante. While it was a typical scoreline for the Argentine manager and his boys, the sole goal and the winner of the fixture was an own goal.
In the meantime, El Glorioso lost 6-0 on the road the past game week, against Celta Vigo. It goes without saying that it was one of the heaviest losses for any team in the whole competition this campaign.
By all means Simeone’s men are the favorites for the day. They have been one of the best teams in the country the last decade, and they especially have been on a roll in the post-Covid season.
On the other hand, El Glorioso are fresh after one of the heaviest defeats, and due to their apparent safety, they are not at all motivated to improve themselves as well.
In addition, Simeone’s men have a phenomenal h2h record against this opponent, and particularly in the recent past. Furthermore, Simeone’s men are on an 11-game unbeaten run at the moment, and this whole season, their sole loss at home had come against Barcelona.
On the other hand, El Glorioso were winless in 17 of their preceding 19 road trips. Considering these stats, expect a dominating Atleti win this weekend.
