Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Metropolitano Stadium will host Saturday’s La Liga game between Atletico Madrid and Sevilla, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Atletico were on the verge of beating Real Madrid in “El Madrileno”, but talented forward Alvaro Rodriguez eventually saved one point for los Blancos. Diego Simeone’s troops are eager to stay in the Champions League berth, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s encounter. Angel Correa misses out through suspension, while all Mandava, Reguilon, and De Paul remain in the recovery room.
Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, are not enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting in 14th place with only 25 points on their account. Since Jorge Sampaoli’s men experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 defeat to Osasuna, we believe that there is a big value in betting on los Rojiblancos. To make things even worse for the away team, centre-back Fernando is banned for the match.
Highlighted Player (Antoine Griezmann):
Anthony 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 U19 European Championship with France and is tipped to lead Les Bleus to glory on senior level as well.
