Atl. Madrid vs Sevilla Prediction & Betting tips
The top pair in the quarter-final of the Copa del Rey is undoubtedly the one between Atletico Madrid and Sevilla FC. Measured by the current table situation in La Liga, the second meets the sixth. Atletico Madrid have been insurmountable in defense in recent weeks, while Sevilla lost a much better ranking after their recent disappointing performance in La Liga. In the first leg of the Wanda Metropolitano, Atletico is the favorite and at least one of the bookmakers still gives acceptable odds for a home victory.
Atl. Madrid :
Atletico Madrid has been known for a strong defense in the past. In the last season, the Colchoneros conceded only 27 goals in 38 games in La Liga and thus the least of all teams. The second least had the FC Barcelona with, however, ten goals more. Also currently Atletico Madrid represents the best defense in La Liga. In nineteen games, the Rojiblancos had only eight times behind them. The last four competitive games Atletico Madrid won all to zero. These were two successes against Getafe and last weekend in Eibar and the two victories against the Lleida amateurs in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey. The only defeat at national level this season before these four games was when Atletico Madrid lost 1-0 to Espanyol. The goal that led to the defeat was also the only goal in the last seven competitive games.
In La Liga, Atletico Madrid are in second place behind Barcelona with a total of 12 wins, six draws and a defeat, but the gap is almost unrepeatable nine points. The Champions League in the coming season, however, should actually be secured with eleven points ahead of fifth place. Speaking of Champions League: In the premier class Atletico Madrid has reached in a group with Chelsea, AS Roma and Qarabag Agdam only third place and has to make do for the rest of the season with the Europa League. In their home stadium, Atletico Madrid have lost only 13 of Chelsea’s Champions League campaign this season. Otherwise, there were eight wins and four draws.
Sevilla FC are currently only sixth in La Liga. After a strong start with thirteen out of fifteen possible points after the first five match days, the first defeat in the sixth round came when Sevilla lost away 2-0 to Atletico Madrid. As a result, there were always a few setbacks in the league until the last big break came. Sevilla have lost four of their last five games in La Liga, with another goalless home draw against relegation candidate Levante. This negative run started with a 0-5 clap at Real Madrid, followed by Sevilla 1-0 at home to Levante, 1-1 at Real Sociedad, 3-5 in the derby against Betis Sevilla and at the weekend 1-0 at relegation Deportivo Alaves lost. In this phase fell only the two wins in the second round of the Copa del Rey against second division Cadiz.
In La Liga, Sevilla are only sixth on the basis of just one point from their last five games and are only qualified to qualify for the Europa League. The gap to Real Madrid in fourth place is only three points, but the Royal still have a catch-up game in the hindquarters. So it does not look good at the moment with regard to a possible participation in the Champions League in the next season. This season, Sevilla qualified second behind Liverpool for the knockout stages in which the Andalusians face Manchester United. The weak point in Sevilla is certainly the offensive, which could achieve only 23 goals in nineteen games in La Liga. Thus Sevilla has the fewest own goals by the teams in the ranks one to eleven. In the direct duels with the top five from La Liga Sevilla saw in the first round hardly land: In Barcelona lost Sevilla 2-1, 0-2 at Atletico Madrid, 0-4 in Valencia and 0-1 at Real Madrid , Sevilla won 3: 2 only at Villarreal. But: Against the top five of the league Sevilla had each ran abroad.
