Sevilla – Atletico Madrid Prediction 23 January 2018


Sevilla will host the Madridian team Atletico at their home ground on the upcoming Tuesday within the second match of the Spanish Cup quarterfinals. Bookmakers are on the future guests’ side in this couple, who require only a victory to advance to semifinals of the second most important Spanish football tournament. In their turn, even a minimal 0:1 loss will suffice for Sevilla, but there is no doubt, that Montella’s side will play only for the win at their home ground.

Sevilla have not started well under Montella: the managed to defeat Cadiz in the Cup, but lost to Betis in the derby and to Alaves. Last round Sevilla looked great away in the match against Espanyol, managing to defeat the opponents with the result of 3:0 and before that they defeated Atletico away, 2:1.

The Spanish Cup is of great value for Atletico, as the Mattressers have already been eliminated from the Champions League and it is very hard to fight with Barcelona in Primera. In its turn, Atletico can defeat anyone in a particular match, even the Catalans, but to advance to the Spanish cup semifinals, Atletico must score at least two goals against Sevilla and win. Atletico have had 11 away matches in Primera, in which they managed to win seven times, while scoring 18 goals.

Sevilla play great in the domestic conditions, but the team’s defense line can hardly be called ideal. Atletico play great away and score 1.6 goals per game on average. One may try betting on the guests’ individual total in this couple.

Prediction for the match: Atletico Madrid to score over 1.0 goals in the match
