Atletico Madrid have been good in the opening games of the season, they are currently unbeaten in all competitions. They kicked off the season with back to back draws against two newly promoted teams, Alves and Leganes. They seem to have gone into full gear last weekend, as they defeated Celta de Vigo 4 nil on the road. Furthermore, they claimed victory in the UCL against PSV on Tuesday to extend their unbeaten run to 4 games. Atletico are currently 7th in the La Liga table with 5 points.

Sporting Gijon are among the good starters this season, they are also unbeaten in the opening 3 games. They kicked off the season with a 2-1 home win over Athletic Club, and later drew against Alves. Last weekend, they claimed a 2-1 victory against Leganes to continue their good form courtesy of goals from Nacho cases and D. Cop in the 17th and 43rd minute respectively. S. Gijon are currently 3rd in the tanle with 7 points and hopes to continue on the good part.

Atletico Madrid vs Sporting Gijon: Prediction

Both teams have started the season well and are in good form, but Simeone’s side remains the favorite for the game. Though they drew their first 2 games to newly promoted sides, they are now in supercharged form in their last 2 games. Their defense is strong, as they have conceded just 1 goal this season. Simeone’s side have kept clean sheets in their last 3 games.

I expect the visitors to get at least a draw in this game, also I’m looking forward to another clean sheet for Simeone’s boys.
