Our football match prediction:
Atletico Madrid quickly recovered from a heavy loss to Villarreal. Los Rojiblancos recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Las Palmas in their last league game in 2016 and they did well to beat Eibar in their first match of the new year. Antoine Griezmann proved his worth in the victory over los Armeros and we predict that Real Betis defenders will have their work cut out for them when facing the French attacker. Atletico Madrid aim to stay in the race for the title and this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts. Los Beticos, on the other hand, outplayed Leganes (2-0) in front of home fans at the weekend, but it is well known that they struggle on the travels. Atletico Madrid emerged triumphant in each of last six league meetings with Real Betis and the capital club are likely to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match.
