Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 2 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán (Sevilla).
While at first, it felt that these two would be battling each other for the top-most spot, things have settled now, and are back to normal. Barcelona is at the top of the table, followed by Real Madrid, and sadly, Sevilla and Atleti are lagging behind with some unlucky and unimpressive games in the kitty.
By all means, we can expect a thriller this weekend, taking into account the desperation of these teams for points. However, with the form of Los Palanganas in front of the home crowd, and the current struggles of Diego Simeone’s men, the home team comes out as slight favorites.
Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid Head-to-head (h2h)
- Julen Lopetegui’s men recorded two of the former three wins.
- The prior two clashes ended with under 2.5 goals.
- Four of the prior six wins went to the teams that had home advantage.
- 12 of the previous 17 wins at this stadium went to the hosts.
- The last time these two met, spoils were shared with a 1-1 scorecard.
Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Lopetegui’s men are unbeaten in their prior four games and won three of these. They also remained invincible in 12 of the preceding 15 fixtures. And importantly have a 100% winning record in Europa League ties.
On the other hand, the string of draws that Atleti has amassed has started to hurt them. They have been displaced from the podium. And have a single win to show from their previous five match-days in the league.
Moreover, the team remained winless in seven of their last eleven overall matches and is on a winless streak of two on the road.
Importantly, in h2h clashes, most recent results have been majorly in favor of Sevilla. And at this venue, it’s been an ongoing stat.
Also, add in the injury to star-man Joao Felix, and the visitors are given the tag of the underdogs this weekend.
Coming to goals, Simeone’s men still are one of the, if not the best defensive unit in Spain. They have conceded a total of two goals from the previous nine overall fixtures, and just one from the last four on the road.
There’s no reason to think that they would be subjected to a goal-rout, despite their underdog status, and as such, the Under 2.5 Match Goals bet has potential this game week.
