Our football match prediction:
Atletico Madrid and Athletic Club face each other at Estadio Vicente Calderon in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Sunday’s program. Los Rojiblancos aim to finish the season with a victory over Ernesto Valverde’s troops, but they have already clinched third place in the La Liga standings. The Champions League semi-finalists are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they will pick up all three points from the last game of the season. The Lions failed to beat Leganes at their San Mames at the weekend and, as a result, they could miss out on a place in the Europa League. Athletic Club face a must-win situation against Atletico Madrid as they are level on points with seventh-placed Real Sociedad, but beating Diego Simeone’s troops on the road is easier said than done and away win should not be considered.
Highlighted Player (Griezmann):
Antoine Griezmann is a French forward born on 21st March 1991 in Macon, and he is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most exciting footballers at the moment. The pacey striker started showing his potential shortly after coming through Real Sociedad’s youth academy and he went on to score 46 goals in 179 league appearances for La Real. Excellent displays in Spanish la Liga saw him become a target for a number of top clubs, but he eventually choose to sign for Atletico Madrid, and that proved to be a very good decision. Griezmann continued the rich vein of form at Vicente Calderon, scoring some important goals as los Colchoneros enjoyed domestic and European success, while also becoming a key member of the France national team. Playing as a winger or second striker, Griezmann possesses impressive technical skills, he is a strong finisher and still finds time to work hard for his side, so no wonder he is widely regarded as one of the leading forwards on the continent. He won the Under-19 European Championship with France and is tipped to lead Les Bleus to glory on senior level as well.
