18th December – 21:00, Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, Sevilla
Sevilla and Atletico Madrid will face each other in the most interesting match of the La Liga 18th round on Saturday evening. The hosts look forward to staying in the title race while the away side searches for a way out from the poor streak.
Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid Match Preview & Team News
Sevilla profited from wasteful Atletico and in-trouble Barcelona to sit in 2nd place in La Liga. The home side is eight points behind Real Madrid but has played one match less than the top-placed team. Sevilla booked two straight wins, and both were narrow and against tricky opponents. Julen Lopetegui’s team hasn’t been much productive in the front, but their disciplined defense helped them become title contenders. Jules Kounde and the lads kept the clean sheet on the previous two occasions and want to keep their backline tight. They’ve been very confident at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, allowing their rivals to get away undefeated just once.
On the other hand, the defending champions cannot be content with their form, and the red alarm is active. They lost twice in a row, with the latest defeat coming in El Derbi Madrileño. That poor streak saw them declining to the 4th spot, being 13 points behind Real Madrid. Diego Simeone’s side hasn’t played well in defense, managing to keep its net intact just once on the previous eight occasions in all competitions. It’s going to be Atletico’s second straight outing, and they booked just one victory in the last five matches on the road. If Luis Suarez and the lads fail to pick up all three points from this one, they’ll likely be out of the title race.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Sevilla is a very disciplined team, and Atletico Madrid will have a hard time earning a victory in this clash. They failed to get back home with a win from Sevilla from the last three outings, and this game could likely end in a draw.
Goals Market Prediction
Atletico Madrid’s defense has been pretty porous this season, and Sevilla could take advantage of that. One of the teams kept the clean sheet only once in their last five encounters at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, and we could see goals in both nets again.
