Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla Prediction & Match Preview

Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla
Spain – La Liga
Date: Tuesday, 12 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).


All eyes will be on Estadio Wanda Metropolitano when Atletico Madrid and Sevilla face each other in a postponed La Liga clash.

Los Rojiblancos were not in action at the weekend as their clash against Athletic Club was postponed.

Diego Simeone’s troops are after their fifth consecutive win in Primera Division, and a victory over Sevilla will see them retain top position in the standings.

Midfielder Herrera remains in the recovery room, while full-back Trippier is suspended for the match.

Defender Gimenez should be fit to face los Sevillanos. Julen Lopetegui’s men aim to build on a thrilling 3-2 win over Real Sociedad, but beating Atletico Madrid in the Spanish capital is easier said than done.

The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment; therefore, we are tempted to put our money on draw. The likes of Escudero, Fernandez, and Vaclik are all sidelined with injuries.

Jesus Navas is rated doubtful after suffering an injury in the victory over La Real.

Team News:

Atletico will be without the services of Hector Herrera and Jose Gimenez through injury, but Stefan Savic should return to the starting XI having served a one-game suspension.

Kieran Trippier is also banned, but Simeone's side do not have any other fresh issues, and it would not be a surprise to see the bulk of the side that featured against Alaves on January 3 take to the field again.

As a result, Saul Niguez might have to accept a spot on the bench once again, but there could be a change in the final third of the field with Joao Felix potentially being given the nod over Angel Correa to start alongside Luis Suarez, who has scored nine league goals this season.

As for Sevilla, Carlos Fernandez, Sergio Escudero and Tomas Vaclik remain unavailable for selection, but the team did not pick up any fresh issues against Sociedad.

En-Nesyri's treble is likely to see the 23-year-old given the nod over Luuk de Jong through the middle once again, while Suso should again keep out Munir El Haddadi in a wide position.

Oliver Torres, Nemanja Gudelj and Oscar Rodriguez are options for change in midfield, but Lopetegui is expected to resist the temptation to make alterations, meaning that the likes of Jules Kounde, Diego Carlos, Ivan Rakitic and Lucas Ocampos should all be in the XI.

Atletico Madrid possible starting lineup:
Oblak; Savic, Felipe, Hermoso; Vrsaljko, Llorente, Koke, Lemar, Carrasco; Felix, Suarez

Sevilla possible starting lineup:
Bounou; Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Acuna; Rakitic, Fernando, Jordan; Ocampos, En-Nesyri, Suso
