Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 12 May 2019
Kick-Off 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Atletico Madrid will host Sevilla in one of the most exciting games of Matchday No 37 in Primera Division on Sunday afternoon. Both teams head into the tie in the lowest of spirits after respective 0-3 defeats in the previous round.
Los Colchoneros fell 3-0 away at Espanyol last weekend, but the loss by no means affected their position in the league ladder. Diego Simeone’s men firmly hold the second place with a six-point cushion on third-placed city rivals Real Madrid.
Sevilla shockingly fell 0-3 at home to Leganes, but their failure had a much bigger consequence. It seriously halted team’s push for the Champions League football as Los Rojiblancos arte now three points shy of fourth-placed Getafe.
Can Joaquin Caprarros find the way to motivate his players after such a devastating home defeat?

Estadio Wanda Metropolitano is clearly one of the toughest venues to collet points from and Sevilla will have a super tough task to get away win a result here even though they badly need one. Atleti won 15, drew 2 and lost just 1 of 18 home outings in this term of Primera Division.
