Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla: betting predictions, tips, and odds

Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla betting preview and match odds
After a terrible run of form towards the end of January, Diego Simeone’s men have finally managed to put some results together. Atletico Madrid enters the fray on the back of a five-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, registering three victories in the process. They did well to beat Liverpool in the Champions League a fortnight ago and then won 3-1 at home against Villarreal in La Liga, but unfortunately, they only drew 1-1 at Espanyol last weekend.
We can say that Simeone’s boys lost two points against Espanyol, as the Catalan club are currently rock bottom of the table with just 20 points to their name after 26 games. This leaves Atletico Madrid just in 5th place in the league table, one point behind 4th-placed Getafe and two behind their Saturday’s opponents. However, Atletico Madrid looked solid recently and they also have the home advantage in this one. Los Colchoneros have been amazing on home soil over the past few months, having suffered just one defeat in their last 15 competitive games. They are undefeated in five home games in La Liga at the moment, having won four of them. Another strong point for Simeone’s men is their excellent defense as they have only conceded seven goals in their last 15 games on home soil.
Atletico Madrid is the bookmakers’ favorites in this tie and they can be found at odds of 1.90 with Bet365. Although Sevilla has been a strong side on the road this season, they are priced at odds of 4.30 with PlayUp for this difficult trip.

Sevilla hasn’t been the same team they were a couple of seasons ago, but they’re still fighting for a Champions League place next season. Sevilla has won their most recent two league outings, including a narrow 3-2 home victory over Osasuna at the weekend. Lopetegui’s men have had a very difficult tie against the Romanian side CFR Cluj in the Europa League last week, but they eventually managed to qualify further in the competition due to the away goal rule. In comparison with the previous season where Sevilla was struggling on the road, they are now the 2nd best away team in the division with 23 points collected in 13 league trips. However, their recent form hasn’t been good at all as they have won just once in their last six trips across all competitions. The most worrying fact is that Los Rojiblancos have conceded at least once in five of their last six away fixtures. Furthermore, Sevilla has only won just once in their last twelve games at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
