Atlético de Madrid vs Sevilla – Copa del Rey : This Wednesday afternoon at the Wanda Metropolitano, Atlético de Madrid hosts Sevilla
On a match counting towards the 1st leg of the Copa del Rey’s quarter-finals.
Atlético de Madrid is in 2nd place of La Liga with 42 points conquered, thanks to a record of 12 wins, 6 draws and 1 loss.
When it comes to goals, they count with 28 goals scored and 8 goals conceded, which therefore results on an average of 1.9 goals per match.
Their new stadium has been working as some sort of fortress for the Colchoneros, who since the draw with Real Madrid on their debut at the Wanda Metropolitano, have 6 wins in 6 matches played there.
Simeone’s team is going through a good moment of form, having 4 consecutive wins. On the previous rounds, Atlético has eliminated Elche and Lleida.
Sevilla occupies the 6th place in La Liga with 29 points conquered, having a record of 9 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses. Their goal ratio counts with 23 goals scored and 28 goals conceded, presenting this way an average of 2.7 goals per match.
It has been away from home that the Andalusian club has been struggling more, getting less than half the points they’ve obtained at the Sanchez Pizjuan, with only 3 wins on the 10 league matches they’ve played away from home.
The team led by Montella isn’t in a good moment of form, only having 2 victories on their last 8 matches. On the previous rounds, Sevilla has eliminated Cadiz and Cartagena.
Atlético de Madrid vs Sevilla – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Atlético presents the 2nd lowest (1.9) goals average per match in La Liga, and with this being a 1st leg match of Copa del Rey, it is natural for the match to be somewhat closed, especially during the first 45 minutes.
Sevilla is going through a tough period, but they are still a wonderful team, so I believe we will see some cautions during the initial phase of the match.
With that said, and analysing both teams’ performances in La Liga, we can see that Atlético and Sevilla present percentages of 85% and 75%, respectively, of their matches finishing with less than 1.5 goals scored before half-time.
