As both Atletico Madrid and Sevilla look to seal their Champions League spots, the former play hosts to the latter this Sunday, as the La Liga 2021-22 enters its home stretch.
Last week’s derby win over arch-rivals Real Madrid, its first in 6 years, and a 2-0 win against Elche have sealed the spot for Atletico in next year’s Champions League. The club seemed to be in the position to defend its title for the most part of the first half of the season. However, a string of losses heading into the winter break meant that Atletico dropped out of the top 4.
They have however seen a resurgence since coming back, and are now back in the 3rd place, leading 5th placed Real Betis by 6 points.
Sevilla is 2 points ahead of its opponents on Sunday, and would like to hold into the position till the end of the season. Sevilla would have hoped for a better result when they hosted Mallorca earlier this week when they were held to a goalless draw. It was the third consecutive time when Sevilla shared the spoils with their opponents, dashing any chances of overtaking Barcelona to reclaim the second spot.
With two difficult fixtures against Atletico Madrid and the Athletic Club coming up, coach Julen Lopetegui would like to win at least one of them to avoid a last-minute embarrassment, as they are just 5 points ahead of Real Betis at the moment.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla F. C. La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be held at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, Madrid, on 15th May 2022.
Given the recent form of both the teams, as well as their on paper strength, most football betting sites are finding it difficult to pick sides. With a Champions League berth at stake, we expect both the teams to hold their ground in this closely fought match.
The hosts have no fresh injury concerns, and is likely to field the same team that helped him clinch the Madrid derby. As for the visitors, their only injury concerns seem to be Karim Rekik and Fernando. Except them. Julen Lopetegui has a fully fit squad to choose from.
By the time the final whistle blows, we expect both the teams to be on equal footing.
Bet on a draw.
In 8 of the last 10 head-to-head matches across competitions, both the teams have netted the ball at least once. 4 of the last 7 games for Atletico and 6 of the last 7 matches for Sevilla too have produced goals at both ends. We can therefore expect both the teams to score at least once on Sunday.
5 of the last 7 matches between the two teams have produced fewer than 2.5 goals in them. 9 of the last 10 away games for Sevilla and 5 of the last 6 matches for Atletico have seen fewer than 3 goals scored in them. We reckon that this too will be a low-scoring game.
