Atletico Madrid will continue their search for a return to winning ways in La Liga on Saturday when they come up against a rejuvenated Sevilla side that were recent winners in midweek. But, which of the Spanish giants will claim maximum points this weekend?
La Liga Preview
There will be exciting action to look ahead to in Spain this weekend, as Atletico Madrid bid to get back to winning ways when they host Sevilla. The Spanish side currently sit fourth in the standings after failing to win three of their last four matches. That run of form has allowed Athletic Bilbao to move level on points with Atletico in fourth.
Atletico’s poor results continued in midweek after they were held to a thrilling 3-3 draw by Getafe. However, they boast one of their best attacking records in Europe at present after scoring 35 goals so far this term. Meanwhile, Atletico have suffered just two defeats in their last 25 matches in the competition, claiming 18 victories over that period.
Sevilla will be the outsiders in the betting this weekend, but there was confidence returned to the camp in midweek following a rare victory. That success was only their third in 17 attempts this term, but it has moved them close of the relegation places in the La Liga standings.
The Spanish side avoided a scare following that result in midweek, as it meant that they would no longer face the risk of losing six straight matches in the competition on the road. If they would have fallen to that trend, then it would have been their worst run of results since suffering relegation in 1999-2000.
Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla Head to Head
Atletico have excelled in recent meetings against Sevilla, claiming victories in each of their last two. That is a huge improvement after winning just once in the previous eight. Meanwhile, Sevilla have gone 14 away matches without a win against Atletico since their 1-0 success in September 2008.
Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla Prediction
Atletico’s defensive record in recent weeks will give Sevilla hope that they could upset the odds this weekend. However, it is still hard to overlook the most likely outcome of the home win, meaning that we will be siding with Atletico to claim victory and both teams to score.
