Atletico Madrid v Sevilla Preview, Primera La Liga, Sunday 19th January 2014

Atletico Madrid head into this game knowing that a win on Saturday for Real Madrid will see them on level points with the 2nd placed La Liga side. Its a pressure they knew would eventually creep up on them yet all they need to do it keep their concentration against a tough Sevilla side and pick up the three points which will once more put some distance between the two. They played well in their last La Liga match as they faced an attacking Barcelona side who were themselves looking to place a few points between them and Atletico. Sevilla are a huge points difference behind the home side for this Sundays game although that shouldn’t deter the fact that they themselves are in a battle for a Champions League finish.

Sevilla recently made their exit out of the Cope del Rey to the lower division side Racing Santander, after winning 1 – 0 away themselves all they had to do was play well and secure a win or draw to progress. Yet their concentration failed them as Racing came at them and scored two away goals and surprisingly progressed into the next round. Now Sevilla can concentrate on just the La Liga and the battle that’s layed out before them. They sit six points adrift Athletic Bilbao who are occupying that Champions League position and Sevilla are one of the four who are right now in the position to fight for such a much wanted league finish.

Atletico Madrid v Sevilla Team News

Atletico Madrid Team News:

No major injury worries for Atletico Madrid with the only player sidelined being midfielder Mario Suarez who has so far featured seven times this season. The Spaniard is out with a knee injury he picked up in training ahead of the win against Athletic Bilbao back at the beginning of November and we are unsure when he is likely to return.

Sevilla Team News:

Sevilla are without three players for the game on Sunday, the first being striker Denis Cheryshev who is out with a thigh strain. He has only featured once this season so not a huge worry for the Sevilla fans and manager. Next in line is the Brazilian Cicinho who has not played this season after suffering with crucial knee ligament damage in pre-season. Sevilla will also be missing Diogo Figueiras who is suspended.

Atletico Madrid v Sevilla Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

With every piece of information taken into account you can’t help but favour Atletico Madrid for the win. With the way they are playing with also holding off a very in form Barcelona side you can’t help but feel the game is in their hands. The pressure of Real Madrid however could prove to grind on a side who have so far this season played extremely well and even sat top of the La Liga for some weeks.

Sevilla themselves will be looking for a win as they look to mount their own challenge as they look to fight for a 4th placed finish. This will be an automatic Champions League entry but the sides around them and thinking the same will be very challenging indeed as there is still eight points between Sevilla and the current 4th place holders Athletic Bilbao.

So lets get down to some predictions for this Sundays Spanish La Liga game, me personally I am going for an Atletico Madrid win and for there to be over 2.5 goals in the 90 minutes which could prove to be a winner. The other is for in form Diego Costa to score 2 or more goals on the day which is giving some nice odds right now from many of the available bookmakers.
