Atletico Madrid hosts Sevilla in round 1 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Tuesday, January 12th at Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid)
The formidable metropolitan club has serious potential for winning the championship title this season. Against the background of Real Madrid and Barcelona, Simeone's charges are distinguished by good game balance and stable performance. The Mattress Makers are in the lead in the standings with a 1-point margin over their competitors and two matches in reserve. In the current season, Atletico has worked competently in the transfer market. The bosses signed contracts with star Suarez and talented Condogbia, Torreiro, and Carrasco. Joao Felix, Llorente, Trippier, and Correa show great progress against the background of the results of the past years. The Argentine winger pushed the star Vitolo, Lemar, and Carrasco out of the starting lineup.

Last season, Sevilla secured a ticket to the Champions League and won the Europa League trophy. Moreover, Lopetegui's charges have successfully progressed from the Champions League group in the new season. In the local arena, the team occupies an intermediate 6th place in the standings with two matches in reserve. Sevilla is distinguished by pragmatic football with high-quality counterattacking actions due to fast flank players. The team was solidly strengthened in the summer transfer market, where the bosses signed contracts with Bono, Acuna, Rekik, Rakitic, Rodriguez, Suso, and Idrissi. En-Nesyri, Jesus Navas, Ocampos, Kounde, Diego Carlos, and Jordan are the most important performers in the tactical schemes of the club.
The final result will come to the fore in the upcoming confrontation. For the hosts of the arena, these are important points in the fight for the champion’s title, while the visitors are trying to return to the Champions League zone. Lopetegui's charges will play defense first and try to use counterattacks. After all, Sevilla has such fast players as En-Nesyri, Ocampos, and Jesus Navas. Atlético will have more control over the ball. The Mattress Makers also love pragmatism on the football field. Therefore, we think that the upcoming match won’t please the fans with goal extravaganza.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
