Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Sevilla had to settle for a goalless draw in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 match against Manchester United. Despite dominating the game with excellent chances falling at the hands of Joaquin Correa, Sevilla found opposition goalkeeper David de Gea in stunning form. During the weekend, Sevilla picked up a 2-1 win over Las Palmas. Atletico Madrid reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League after beating FC Copenhagen 5-1 on aggregate. They picked up a 1-0 win on Thursday night, as Kevin Gameiro scored the only goal of the game. During the weekend, Atletico Madrid beat Athletic Bilbao 2-0 with goals from Kevin Gameiro and Diego Costa.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Atletico will be looking to get revenge for Sevilla for the Copa del Rey quarter-final exit, as the latter managed a 5-2 aggregate victory over Atletico. This Atletico team come into the game with a vast amount of confidence, but Sevilla have had an additional day’s rest. However, this is likely to be insignificant against a well-drilled Atletico team. Still, Atletico have picked up just one win in the last four visits to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. I would back a Sevilla win. Even though Atletico have kept four clean sheets in the last five La Liga matches on the road, Sevilla are a strong outfit when it comes to scoring goals. Sevilla’s top scorer Wissam Ben Yedder is on good form but he was an unused substitute against Manchester United. The Frenchman will be fresh coming into the game, while Atletico have averaged around 1.5 goals per game on the road in the last six. I would back both teams to score.

Sevilla win – 12/5

Sevilla Preview

Despite only a draw with Manchester United, it is likely that Sevilla manager Vincenzo Montella will be quietly confident about reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Even a solitary goal at Old Trafford will force Manchester United to come up with two goals, and Sevilla are more than capable of scoring – as displayed by the number of good chances created in the first leg. At the same time, Sevilla have also been able to jump into the fifth spot by taking advantage of Villarreal’s recent poor form. Vincenzo Montella’s team has picked up back-to-back league wins. Wissam Ben Yedder is the club’s top scorer with six league goals.

Sevilla Team News

Sebastien Corchia (groin) and Lionel Carole (muscle) are the players missing from action for Sevilla.

Atletico Madrid Preview

Diego Simeone has seen his team hit a sweet spot once again, as they have been able to go on a six-game winning run in all competitions. This happens to be the best run of form put together by the team so far this season. The addition of Diego Costa has been a huge positive – even if the striker has been in and out of the first team due to injuries. Earlier in the campaign, Atletico were heavily dependent on Antoine Griezmann but the goals from players like Kevin Gameiro have increased the alternatives for Diego Simeone. Still, Griezmann is the top scorer at the club with eight goals.

Atletico Madrid Team News

Lucas Hernandez (thigh) and Stefan Savic (thigh) are the players unavailable for Diego Simeone.
