Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a come-from-behind win over Real Sociedad, Atletico Madrid will be looking to extend their winning run in La Liga to three games when they square off against Real Betis at Estadio Benito Villamarin on Matchday 15. Los Rojiblancos melted Barca’s advantage in the standings to six points, but Diego Simeone’s troops do not want to stop now. Atletico Madrid are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s football game against Real Betis and seeing that the Andalusian side have been struggling in the national championship of late, we predict the visitors will give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. Antoine Griezmann scored a late winner for los Rojiblancos in the victory over La Real and all eyes will be on the French attacker when the two teams face each other at Estadio Benito Villamarin. Los Beticos failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to relegation-threatened Levante and they are unlikely to shock the capital club in front of home fans.
Highligted Player (Campbell):
Joel Campbell is a highly rated 23-year-old versatile forward who plays for the English Premier League club Arsenal and the Costa Rica national team. His versatility has seen him operating as a forward or on the wings. Campbell often hogs the headlines with his fast-paced runs on the wings and breathtaking goals. He was highly rated by Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger and was snapped up as a teenager in 2011 but spent his first three seasons at the club on loan at three different clubs. His competitive debut at Arsenal came only in 2014 but has become a regular with the national squad. He has earned 55 caps already and has 11 goals to his credit in national colors. He has already played in CONCACAF Gold Cup and Copa America. But it is his success as a key member of the 2014 FIFA World Cup quarter-final reaching squad that is a highlight of his career so far.
Highlighted Team (Atletico Madrid):
Atletico Madrid are a Spanish team that plays in Primera Division (La Liga). Los Rojiblancos or los Colchoneros play their home matches at Estadio Vicente Calderon, which holds up to 54,960 spectators. Atletico Madrid have won 10 La Liga titles, but they have yet to lift the European Cup (Champions League) trophy. Los Rojblancos have won 10 Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) trophies and it has to be noted that they defeated their bitter local rivals Real Madrid in the 2012/2013 Spanish Cup final. The rivalry between the two capital clubs is pretty big and El Madrileno is regarded as one of the most exciting derbies in the world football. Atletico Madrid played two Champions League finals under Diego Simeone, but they failed to beat Real Madrid in the title games (2013/2014 and 2015/2016). However, the Argentine tactician helped Atletico Madrid win the La Liga trophy in 2014 and, no doubt, he is one of the most successful coaches in the history of the capital club.
