Atletico Madrid vs Alaves Prediction & Match Preview

Atlético Madrid

Alavés

21 March 2021 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET La Liga Wanda Metropolitano

After sharing the spoils with ten-man Getafe in the local derby, Atletico Madrid will be aiming to retain top position in the standings when they take on Deportivo Alaves at their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. 

Los Rojiblancos are determined to regain the domestic trophy, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Alaves. 

Since Diego Simeone should have a full squad to choose from, we believe that home win should be considered.

A man to watch in the home team will be Luis Suarez, who has netted 18 goals in La Liga so far this season. 

The Basques, on the other hand, were on the verge of beating Cadiz on Matchday 27, but the Yellow Submarine eventually scored a late equalizer from the penalty spot. 

Since important midfielder Manu Garcia misses the Atletico Madrid game through suspension, we are tempted to put our money the league leaders.

Team News:

Atletico will be unable to call upon Joao Felix this weekend, with the Portugal international suspended due to the yellow card that he picked up in the goalless draw with Getafe last weekend.

Felipe is back from a suspension of his own, though, and the home side do not have any confirmed absentees through injury for this match, meaning that Simeone has plenty of options.

Angel Correa should join Luis Suarez as part of a front two, while Mario Hermoso and Thomas Lemar are both in line for starts, having featured as substitutes against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

As for Alaves, Rodrigo Ely remains unavailable for selection through injury, but Ximo Navarro is back from a suspension and should return to the starting side at right-back.

Both Tomas Pina and Manu Garcia are suspended, meaning that Pere Pons and Rodrigo Battaglia should both earn roles in the middle of the away side's midfield.

On-loan Manchester United attacker Facundo Pellistri is in line to feature on the right once again, while Edgar Mendez could again operate alongside Joselu as part of a front two.

Atletico Madrid possible starting lineup:
Oblak; Savic, Gimenez, Hermoso; Trippier, Lemar, Koke, Llorente, Carrasco; Suarez, Correra

Alaves possible starting lineup:
Pacheco; Navarro, Laguardia, Lejeune, Duarte; Pellistri, Pons, Battaglia, Rioja; Mendez, Joselu
