Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Sunday’s football game at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan pits together Sevilla and Atletico Madrid, the two teams who have been in a fine form of late. Los Sevillanos have been producing splendid displays under former Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli and they are on the right track to book their place in the Champions League knockout stages. The Andalusian outfit sit in third place in the La Liga standings ahead of the visit of Atletico Madrid and a win over Diego Simeone’s troops would see them climb to top position in the table. Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, are on a five-game winning run in all competitions and you should bear in mind that the capital club have yet to suffer a loss in the 2016/2017 season (all competitions). Both Sevilla and Atletico Madrid are likely to adopt a cautious approach in Sunday’s derby and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils on Matchday 9.
Highlighted Player (Samir Nasri):
Samir Nasri is a French footballer who plays for Manchester City. The former Arsenal man used to play for Marseille in the past and he began his youth career at Pennes Mirabeau in 1995. Nasri is an attacking midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a winger as well.
The France international was born on 26 June, 1987 in Septemes-les-Vallons, the suburbs of Marseille. He is 175 cm tall and it has to be noted that his parents are Algerian. Samir Nasri has won two Premier League trophies with Manchester City, but he was not as successful during his spell with Arsenal.
It is well known that Arsenal fans were angry with Nasri when he signed a four-year contract with Manchester City in 2011. The transfer fee was in the region of £25 million. The French footballer has 41 caps for the national team, but he retired from international football on 9 August, 2014.
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 Rojiblancos 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.
