Sevilla FC vs Atletico Madrid Preview

 

Sevilla FC vs Atletico Madrid

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

Date: 25th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Sevilla are a tough side to play at home as Manchester United found out in midweek and they will be looking to get another win against Atleti in this game.

They have lost only a single game in their last 37 home matches and they will look to continue that run here again.

Sevilla are not one of the highest scoring sides in the league this season as they have seen under 2.5 goals scored in 64% of their home matches this season.

They won the two legs of their Copa del Rey game against Atleti last month and they will be looking to get a third straight win here.

This is a season defining game for Atletico Madrid and they will be looking to show everyone that they can snatch the title from Barcelona this season.

They head into this game with just 7 points separating them from the Catalans.

They also come into this game off the back of 4 straight wins and that should boost their morale ahead of this game.

Winning this game is easier said than done as Sevilla defeated them in the Copa del Rey just recently.

Their defensive solidity is their key to success as they have conceded just 9 goals all season, conceding just 0.42 goals on the road so far.

Despite Sevilla winning the last two meetings, bookmakers make Atletico favourites to come out on top.

This game has all the makings of a very low-scoring a game and it won’t be a surprise to see the same scoreline as their midweek game against Manchester United (0:0).
