Competition: La Liga
Market: Atletico Madrid to beat Sevilla
Odds: 5/4 @ Bet365
La Liga continues this weekend with yet another fascinating round of games that will only add to the excitement of the league. The league table has remained incredibly tight, with a single win often able to help a team rise up a number of places and, with this in mind, Atletico Madrid travel to face Sevilla in Sunday’s clash.
Sevilla have been in fairly good form this year and they will be looking to continue their push up the table, with the Champions League places just above them. After 24 games they have won 12, drawn three and lost nine, scoring 31 goals and conceding 35 times. In their last five they have won three, drawn once and lost once, which has seen them onto 39 points. Their current tally means they are four lear of Eibar in seventh, while they are only seven short of Valencia in the last Champions League places, and they will be desperate to close this gap.
Atletico Madrid have been superb this season and they are Barcelona’s closest competitors. After 24 games they have won 16, drawn seven and lost once, scoring 36 goals and conceding nine times. In their last five they are unbeaten, winning four and drawing once which has seen them onto 5 points. Atleti are only seven points behind Barcelona at the top, and another win would maintain the pressure on the league leaders and it could even see the gap closed to as little as four points.
