Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid
SUN 4 APR 2021 – KO 20:00
BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Sunday night, Atletico Madrid take their title challenge to Andalusia to face Sevilla, in a clash that could prove to be a difficult one for La Liga’s leaders.
Julen Lopetegui’s team are currently fourth-place in the Spanish top-flight table, five points clear of fifth-place Real Sociedad in the race to secure Champions League football for next season. Los Rojiblancos’ form has been slightly inconsistent of late in La Liga, as they have won just two of their last five league outings. On the flip-side, they are also three matches unbeaten in the Spanish top-flight.
The Andalusians recent matches in La Liga have been tight, low-scoring affairs, as six of their last seven league matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
Sevilla have a strong recent home record in La Liga, winning seven of their last eight league matches at the Sanchez Pizjuan.
Diego Simeone’s team are unbeaten in five La Liga outings, although they haven’t been at their best of late in the Spanish top-flight. They are still four points clear at the top of the table, despite their recent relatively inconsistent league form.
Atletico are renowned for their defensive solidity and have built their title challenge on a strong defence, as no team has let in fewer goals than the 18 that Diego Simeone’s side has conceded in the Spanish top-flight.
Los Rojiblancos have lost just one of their last 21 away games in the Spanish top-flight. However, they have drawn two of their last three league matches on their travels.
Sevilla have no reported injury issues heading into this clash.
Atletico Madrid forward Moussa Dembele collapsed in training last week, but the former Celtic forward has now returned to training.
