Reason for Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid Predictions
In their previous La Liga fixture, Sevilla earned a 1-0 victory at Athletic Bilbao, with Thomas Delaney getting their goal. That was their second straight 1-0 win, having also edged past Villarreal in their previous fixture. Manager Julen Lopetegui often prioritizes defensive solidity, particularly at home, where Sevilla has kept clean sheets in six of their last nine matches. This season, they are also yet to taste defeat at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Sevilla has the meanest defense in La Liga, with Diego Carlos and Jules Kounde forming a solid central defensive partnership. Nemanja Gudelj is a tremendous defensive midfielder who knows what he is doing at all times, he is strong, and it is difficult to take the ball away from this guy, he deserves praise. Papu Gomez is a guy who causes many problems to the opponent on the left side. He is fast and is unstoppable in a one-on-one game.
Atletico Madrid is desperate to breathe some life into their title defense as they travel to Sevilla on Saturday in the Spanish La Liga. Both teams often prioritize defensive solidity, and with their attacks not particularly firing lately, a low-scoring encounter could be on the cards. The rest of La Liga is playing catch-up to runaway leaders Real Madrid with Sevilla at the front of the chasing pack. They are eight points off the pace, having suffered just one defeat in their last nine league matches. Atletico Madrid’s title defense has not gone according to plan as they are currently 13 points behind local rivals Real Madrid. They have lost their last two La Liga matches and were beaten 2-0 in the derby last time out. One of the reasons for Atletico Madrid’s struggles this season appears to be a lack of cutting edge in attack. Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann have struggled to find their best form, combining for just ten goals this term. Atletico Madrid has surprisingly played better on their travels this season and has lost just twice in eight away matches. Joao Felix enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Diego Simeone seeks responsibility in every game, it doesn’t matter who the opponent is. The players have to do their best, which is why he is one of the best coaches in the world.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
