Atletico Madrid vs Huesca
Spain La Liga
Date: Thursday, 22 April 2021
Kick-Off at 18.00 UK
Venue: Estadio Wanda Metropolitano, Madrid.
Atletico Madrid took advantage of Real’s slip-up at the weekend to go three points clear off the bitter city rivals at the top of the standings.
Diego Simeone’s troops produced one of the most impressive attacking showings of the season despite missing the likes of Luis Suarez and Joao Felix.
Neither of them is expected to return to the starting line-up on Thursday evening when Los Colchoneros play host to relegation-threatened Huesca in the mid-week round.
The absence of two of his main attacking stars should not worry Simeone that much. The Argentinean manager can be thrilled with displays from Angel Correa and Llorente who bagged a brace each in the weekend’s 5-0 drubbing of Eibar at Estadio Wanda Metropiltano.
Will the hosts be able to repeat such a display here against Azulgranas?
Atletico Madrid vs Huesca Head-to-head
- This will only be the fourth head to head clash between the two sides.
- Atletico Madrid won two and drew one of the last three.
- Huesca are yet to score a goal against Los Colchoneros.
- However, Azulgranas managed to keep Atletico Madrid to a goalless draw when these two likes met each other in the first half of the season at Estadio El Alcoraz.
Atletico Madrid vs Huesca Prediction
Huesca failed to back up the consecutive league victories over Levante and Elche as they fell 1-0 away at direct relegation rivals Deportivo Alaves on Sunday afternoon.
Pacheta’s troops have thus well complicated their lives down in the relegation scrap as they now sit lock on points with Alaves and Real Valladolid right on the brink of the danger area.
The visitors will park the bus against the title hopefuls without doubts. They have generally done well to keep things quiet at the back lately, conceding only two goals in the last four La Liga outings against Osasuna, Levante, Elche, and Alaves.
Los Colchoneros could struggle to break the deadlock but we believe they will eventually make it count and pick up a narrow clean-sheet victory here.
Atletico Madrid to win to nil is our main betting option here and you can back it at the odds of 2.00.
