On the upcoming Wednesday, three matches of Copa del Rey quarterfinals will be played and one of the encounters will be a clash between Atletico and Sevilla, which will be held on the Madridian team’s pitch. Atletico are in a decent sporting shape, Simeone’s team reminds a boa once again, who chokes its opponents, not letting them breathe. And the Sevillan mamagement, it seems, has made a mistake by inviting Montella on the head coach post. The Italian couldn’t improve Nervionense’s performance in the shortest terms and his team keeps losing one important encounter after another.
Atletico Madrid in their style defeated Eibar away last weekend in the Basque country, whereas the Mattressers have once again made a shutout. The Red-and-Whites have 42 points in the asset after the victory, the gap to Barcelona is nine points, Valencia are two points behind Atletico and Real Madrid are ten points away.
Sevilla under Montella defeated only Cadiz twice, but Cadiz are a Segunda team, while in Primera there were a defeat from Betis in the derby and a loss against Alaves, 0:1. As a result, the Red-and-Whites have fallen to the sixth position in the Spanish elite table, letting Villarreal move past them, already having 29 points. But the most unpleasant thing is, that Sevilla do not have a set performance, they act spontaneously in attack with a lot of mistakes in defense.
Atletico are more than expected favorites of the upcoming game, Simeone’s team is concentrating on domestic competitions after the elimination from the Champions League, the team’s goal is to get one of the Spanish trophies. Sevilla are in a bad shape, Montella doesn’t know, what to do with his new team.
Prediction for the match: Atletico Madrid to win
