Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid: Predicted lineup, injury news, head-to-head, telecast
Sevilla will look to win back-to-back matches for the first time this season
With the side three points away from relegation zone, Sevilla have struggled to find consistency this season. After losing in the Copa del Rey to Atletico Madrid, the side will look forward to retaliating against Atletico Madrid. In the last two matches, they have performed impressively, obtaining a draw against Osasuna and a win over Rayo Vallecano. As a result of En-Nesyri’s return, the team has shown improved performance in the last two matches.
It has been an impressive season for Atletico Madrid with some unbelievable results. With ten points separating them from leaders Real Madrid in the table, they will need to produce an impressive second half in order to be in contention for the title. Simeone will be disappointed with his side’s last performance because they lost out in the Copa del Rey. Even though they created more chances and had more shots in the game, they were unable to finish.
