Atlético de Madrid vs Elche – Copa del Rey : In one of this Wednesday’s 2nd leg matches of the round of 32 of the Copa del Rey…
The home side Atlético de Madrid and the visiting side Elche will meet in Madrid, at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium, in the 2nd leg of a tie that, for now, is tied, after the 1-1 draw recorded on the 1st leg.
Atlético de Madrid is coming off a more positive streak of results comparing to previous weeks, namely during the month of October, getting 3 wins on their last 4 matches (only failing to beat Real Madrid, at home).
That is after getting 7 draws since the end of September, in one of the darkest periods since Diego Simeone took over the command of the Colchoneros.
After the draw in the 1st leg, Atlético will only have to win or draw 0-0 with Elche to advance.
As for Elche, considering the dimension of the club they are facing in this tie, they even managed to get a considerably positive result, stopping the team from La Liga at their own stadium.
The team is coming off a less positive streak of results, getting 2 draws and 2 wins on their last 4 matches, and not winning since the beginning of this month of November.
Atlético de Madrid vs Elche – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a match between two teams who are separated by 2 divisions, I can only see a hosts’ win against Elche, ensuring this way their presence on the next stage of the Copa del Rey (and it would be a scandal in case Atlético was eliminated).
This way, I believe that the Colchoneros will be able to win comfortably in this match, taking advantage of their better moment of form, after having scored 7 goals on their last 2 matches.
