Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid Prediction & Match Preview


There will be fireworks when Sevilla and Atletico Madrid face each other at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Matchday 29. 

Los Sevillanos dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Real Valladolid, but despite the draw, they remained in the Champions League berth. 

The Andalusian outfit are on the right track to book their place in the elite competition, but boss Julen Lopetegui must warn his men against complacency. 

Aleix Vidal remains sidelined with injury, while important midfielder Fernando has overcome his problem.

Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, are now only four points clear of Barca and six above Real Madrid in the La Liga table. 

Diego Simeone’s men are eager to start a new winning run, and we are positive that they will go for a victory in Sunday’s clash. Given Sevilla’s attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. 

Joao Felix is back from suspension for Atletico, but Carrasco is banned this time out.

Team News:

Sevilla could again be without the services of Aleix Vidal due to a hamstring injury, but the home side are otherwise in good shape, meaning that Lopetegui has a number of decisions to make.

Fernando is fully fit following a slight problem and should start in the middle of the park, with Joan Jordan and Ivan Rakitic also potentially earning positions in the first XI.

Suso and Youssef En-Nesyri are certain starters in the final third of the field, while Lucas Ocampos is expected to be given the nod over Papu Gomez, who could drop to the bench.

As for Atletico, Yannick Carrasco is suspended due to the yellow card that he picked up against Alaves last time out, meaning that Saul Niguez could feature as the left-sided wing-back.

Joao Felix is also still out with an ankle problem, which should see Angel Correa start alongside leading scorer Suarez in the final third of the field.

There are not expected to be any major surprises in the away side's XI on Sunday, with Stefan Savic, Jose Gimenez and Mario Hermoso set to continue as the three-man defence.

Koke is likely to be the deepest of the midfielders, with Thomas Lemar and Marcos Llorente featuring ahead of him, meaning that Lucas Torreira and Hector Herrera should again start on the bench.

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

Atletico Madrid possible starting lineup:
