Watch Online: Sevilla - Atletico Madrid (La Liga) 18.12.2021 20:00 - Saturday
The La Liga derby opposes Sevilla and Atletico Madrid against each other. Last season, both teams won a place in the Top 4, and the "Mattresses" even won with the title in Spain. In the current campaign, it seems difficult to stop Real Madrid on their way to the trophy, and the best chance at this point have the Andalusians, they are second and five points ahead of their current opponent.
Sevilla enters this match in high spirits after two victories over difficult opponents. They were against Villarreal and Atletico Bilbao, who may be in the bottom half of the standings, but are insidious and difficult to defeat opponents. With these victories, the Andalusians have ten victories in their asset. Sevilla's performances in defense are impressive with only eleven goals conceded.
The last few months have not been successful for Atletico Madrid at all. The team rarely wins in La Liga and in the Champions League, with two consecutive lost games in the league. Last week, Suarez and company lost the derby with Real, and earlier surprisingly lost 1:2 at home to Mallorca.
The favorite for the three points today is Sevilla. The team did not win only against Alaves at home, although they still have not met the best teams in Spain. Atletico Madrid is too hesitant this season and in a bunch of matches "escaped" in the final minutes. Four victories in eight matches is not imressive, and also only one of them was in the last five visits.
The match can go in either direction, and it is difficult to predict the number of goals, although it is logical to expect less than 2.5 goals. However, the opponents often exchange goals, and Atletico easily collected as a guest this season. I don't think the hosts will lose today and I expect them to be closer to three points. The coefficient allows me to insure myself in the event of a draw and I will do so.
