Atletico Madrid vs Alaves
SAT 27th JUNE 2020 – KO 21:00pm
BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Saturday night, Atletico Madrid host Alaves, with Simeone’s side looking to keep a distance from Sevilla in fourth place!
The home side are currently in third place, just two points ahead of Sevilla. With seven games to go in La Liga, every point really does count now to get Champions Leauge football.
Since the restart, Simeone’s side has been in fantastic form. They drew the first game and have won their last three. What’s even more impressive is the fact that they have only conceded once in the meantime.
Their defence is one of the best in the world and this season they have conceded just 22 games all season. This has helped them to suffer just one defeat at home this season. Atletico has played Alaves already and drew with them 1-1.
The side from the Basque Country are currently 13th in La Liga and nine points above relegation. This game isn’t a must-win for them, however, they won’t be going to the capital and rolling over.
Alaves have won one and drawn two since the restart. Their most recent was a 6-0 thrashing away to Celta Vigo. This has been Alaves overall pattern for the season when playing away. They have only managed two wins all season on the road, both against teams in the bottom half.
Alaves will have it all to do on Saturday night. Atletico are a tough team for any to beat, especially a team in the bottom half!
Felipe missed the game last week with gastric problems and it is unclear when he will return. Vrsaljko is another defender who might miss this weekends game due to a knee injury.
Aleix Vidal bruised his knee last weekend so is a doubt and Martín Aguirregabiria is back from suspension.
