Los Rojiblancos are looking to cut the gap between them and Los Colchoneros with three points on Tuesday. However, it will be extremely hard to get a win at Wanda Metropolitano. Read our Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla Preview to get all the info you need.
Atletico Madrid Recent Form & Team News
Even though Atletico Madrid’s suffered elimination from the cup by a third-tier side for a second season in a row, they have been fantastic in LaLiga. With three matches in hand over Real Madrid and Barcelona, and the best defense in Europe’s top five divisions (0.4 goals allowed on average per game), Los Colchoneros are in outstanding form this term.
They are undefeated at Wanda Metropolitano in this LL campaign (W7, D1), keeping the net intact in six matches so far. They led at halftime in five of their seven victories. An average of 2.38 goals netted per LL contest at home, in a combination with an average of only 0.25 conceded, has been devastating for rivals. That rock-solid D sets them up nicely to prolong an 11-match unbeaten H2H home streak over Sevilla (W5, D6) in LaLiga.
Player to watch: Luis Suárez bagged the decisive goal in three of Atletico’s previous four victories.
Diego Simeone will be without Hector Herrera (muscle), but the rest of the players are healthy and at coach’s disposal.
Sevilla Recent Form & Team News
Still, Atletico may be about to face their match in a Sevilla team that’s gone without a defeat in nine matches in all competitions (W7, D2). Los Rojiblancos also scored in seven consecutive H2H at all venues (W2, D4, L1). The sixth-placed visitors will look to cause a second-half upset to Simeone’s side, and are surely capable. Even eight of their nine LaLiga wins this season actually involved a draw at halftime.
A Sevilla victory will take them to 4th position and into the Champions League places. Although the odds are against them in this one, they do travel to Atletico on a four-match undefeated streak on the road (W3, D1). Any Sevilla surge will probably come late in the game, as they’ve netted five of their nine goals away from home in the final 15 minutes.
Player to watch: After scoring a hat-trick in the latest round, Youssef En Nesyri could be Sevilla’s dangerman here .
Hot streak: Eighteen consecutive LaLiga H2H duels have produced 6+ yellow cards.
Julen Lopetegui cannot count on Sergio Escudero (elbow), Carlos Fernandez (muscle), and Tomas Vaclik (muscle).
