On the match that will open the 6th round of La Liga, Atlético Madrid and Sevilla will face off at the Wanda Metropolitano, in Madrid.
This will be probably the most interesting match to watch this weekend, with the vice-leader meeting the 3rd place team.
On the Atlético’s side, Augusto Fernandez and Sime Vrsaljko are absences, while on the visitors Nolito and Guido Pizarro are unavailable for Berizzo.
Both teams are having a good start to the new season on this competition, being 2 out of the 5 teams that are still unbeaten so far and they also have very solid defensive records, with the visitors being the team that has conceded the least goals so far, only one up until this moment.
On the recent records, in terms of head-to-head, Sevilla has only won once since 2011.
In terms of their recent record, the teams of Simeone and Berizzo are both coming off 2 straight wins in La Liga, curiously with all those wins being by the slightest margin possible.
Well, as I’ve said before, both of these teams have two of the best defensive records in La Liga so far, with Sevilla only conceding once in 5 matches, against Espanyol on the 1st round.
Since then, they have had 4 straight league matches without conceding a single one.
Atlético Madrid vs Sevilla – Betting Tip and Prediction:
As for the hosts, I would say that they have already conceded more than enough goals than usual (considering they are one of the best teams defending not only in Spain, but also in the whole world), despite having conceded 4 goals on their last 2 league matches.
Well, considering their defensive records and the fact that both of these teams will play, next week, some Champions League matches.
I predict a close match in terms of tactics (both Simeone and Berizzo are really strong on this aspect) and, because of that, I don’t expect a high-scoring match.
