La Liga: Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid preview, team news, prediction and tips
December 17


Sevilla and Atletico Madrid will face off in the La Liga matchday 18 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday. The kick-off is at 22:00 CEST.


Despite their failure to qualify for the Champions League knock-out rounds, Sevilla have fared quite impressively in the Spanish top flight. Julen Lopetegui's men have beaten Villarreal (1-0) and Athletic Bilbao (1-0) in La Liga since losing to Real Madrid (2-0) on November 28 and thus have stayed in the second place in the table with 34 points, eight points behind Madrid and with a game in hand. What's more, the Andalusians will take on the reigning champions on the back of a 2-1 win over Andratx in the Spanish Cup on Wednesday.

Atletico, on the other hand, continue to struggle with their title defence as Diego Simeone's side have slipped down to fourth in the standings following their 2-0 loss in the Madrid derby last weekend which followed a surprising 2-1 defeat at the hands of Mallorca two weeks ago. The Rojiblancos are now five points adrift of their forthcoming oppoentns and whopping 13 points behind their city rivals. Hence, Atleti are very unlikely to keep the La Liga trophy at the Wanda Metropolitano beyond the 2021/22 campaign.

Team news

Jesus Navas, Suso, Erik Lamela and Youssef En-Nesyri won't feature for the Andalusians on the weekend through injury while Fernando is suspended for this one. Stefan Savic, Sime Vrsaljko and Antoine Griezmann, meanwhile, will play no part for the visitors due to respective injury woes.


Atletico absolutely have to avoid a third consecutive loss in the league when they travel to Seville on the weekend. Simeone's crop, however, haven't been at their best since the opening day of the current campaign and Sevilla will definitely not make life easier for the current champions. Even without a number of their pivotal players, Lopetegui's side continue to chace Real Madrid at the top of the table and thus we can't see Atleti taking all three points on Saturday, especially after Griezmann has been ruled out for the remainder of 2021 with a thigh injury.


Sevilla not to lose and total under 3.5 at 1.725 with 1XBET.
