Without a doubt, the most highly anticipated derby of La Liga is the El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona. In recent years, we have seen another rivalry emerge, on grounds which are closer to competitive nature, rather than historic ones.
Atletico Madrid and Sevilla have often been seen as second-tier teams, but their recent performances are absolutely spectacular. And the games between them are usually the same.
Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid – 23/10/2016
Betting Odds: Sevilla 4.00 or 3/1 Draw 3.50 or 5/2 Atletico 1.95 or 19/20
Although these games are very balanced, Atletico hasn’t lost against Sevilla in their last 13 games. Simeone seems to have found the key to keeping Sevilla at bay, although he doesn’t win each and every game.
Furthermore, Atletico currently sits first in La Liga and are undefeated – even after facing Barcelona away from home.
They did face a long distance trip in mid-week in Europe, away at Rostov, and fatigue might be an issue – but the value of the squad should be enough to tank it.
Meanwhile, Sevilla is also in fine form. They’ve managed some great results so far, both in the Champions League and in the domestic competition, only losing a single game, away at Bilbao.
They currently sit third and would greatly enjoy avoiding defeat in this game, which will keep their hope of qualifying directly for the Champions League alive. All their recent wins were very close ones, though – 1-0, 2-1 or 3-2.
Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tips
All things considered, we think that the safest bet for this game is Atletico to avoid defeat. If you’re looking for higher odds, go for a “both teams to score bet” or a solo away win. A simple goal for Atletico could mean a victory, due do their great defensive quality.
If you’re looking for goalscorers, we believe in Carrasco and Griezmann, the two most in-form players from the Atletico squad this season. Lots of luck and inspiration!
