Atletico Madrid 2/5 to win to nil against Astana in tonight’s Champions League clash
Competition: Champions League
Market: Atletico Madrid to win to nil against Astana
Odds: 2/5 @ Ladbrokes
Atletico Madrid host FC Astana tonight in the Champions League, and are big favourites to come away with a win. The Spanish giants are currently second in Group C, and could go level on points with leaders Benfica should the Portuguese outfit lose in Europe this week. Atleti are in fantastic form in the Spanish La Liga this season, and will be looking to extend their run of results in the Champions League.
Diego Simeone’s side have been inconsistent at times this season, but are notoriously difficult to beat on home soil. They’ll also be determined to put things right in the group after having lost to Benfica in their last European clash. Atleti boast a much stronger squad than that of their opposition, but may have to contend with defensive tactics for the 90 minutes.
As a result, their clash against the Kazakhstan outfit may not be the most entertaining, but it’s still crucial for Atleti to come out on top. They have stemmed the tide of goals in the league, and are being backed by Ladbrokes with odds of 2/5 to win to nil against Astana. Victory will turn their fortunes around in the Champions League, and given the visitors have been whipping boys so far, this should be a home banker.
