Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 4 April 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan (Sevilla).
Sevilla has no urgency for the three points, as they are still in contention for the promotion at fourth place. However, a win will put them closer to the reigning champions on the table. They will return home after a 1-1 draw on the road with Real Valladolid last time out in their schedule.
Atletico Madrid has a do-or-die situation going on in the campaign as they are aiming for their 11th La Liga title in their records. Any drop in points will increase the chances for Barcelona and Real Madrid lurking at the second and third positions on the table, with just two and six points behind the host, respectively.
All eyes will be at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan to see if the regular title winners can make a comeback with a loss for the Los Indios. Diego Simeone will be keen to be careful in the middle, and two of their recent five matches have ended in a draw.

Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Sevilla has a strong defense that can turn the smallest chances in counter-attacking to a goal. However, recently the host is not on their best form in the campaign. They have scored 39 goals in their 28 league appearances while conceding just 21 goals in the process.
In the meantime, Atletico Madrid will come into the game with 51 goals scored in their 28 attempts until now this term against the 18 goals conceded in the same period. With the top two defensive teams locking horns, we cannot count on a high-scoring affair in ninety minutes. Since the three points are urgent for the visitors, expect both teams to find the back of the net in full-time.
The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game and has a decent form at home, losing just three of their last 14 home matches. Besides, Simeone’s men will visit on the back of a Champions League loss on the road against Chelsea. Hence, the double chance favoring Atletico Madrid will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash regarding the guest’s squad strength.
