Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla (By: Jshoot)
Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla in Copa Del Rey 1st Leg Quaterfinals.
Diego Simeone has only lost once as a manager against Sevilla in 14 of their meeting. Simeone has made a hint of line up during their last training session, Moyá; Juanfran, Savic, Godín, Lucas; Koke, Gabi, Saúl, Vitolo; Griezmann, Diego Costa. Whether that will be his line up for this game it cannot be confirmed. However, assume if that will be the lineup, it is considered to be very strong lineup as it is their strongest XI players they can field apart from Vitolo & Moya. All their main players are fit to play, only Filipe Luiz who is likely not going to play as he's only just back in training recently. Oblak isn't in the squad so he won't be on the bench or XI.
Simeone has been playing a lot of strong sides in Copa Del Rey including his previous 1st leg & 2nd leg Copa Del Rey games which he did use players like Costa, Godin, Savic, Saul, Carrasco. Even in first leg against Lleida, Griezmann was on the bench and when he came on he scored. Atletico Madrid is currently on 2nd place in La Liga, currently 9 points difference with Barcelona. They know that their chance to win La Liga might be impossible given how brilliant Barcelona has been this season. Copa Del Rey will definitely be one of the competition that Simeone would like to win it this season as they are already reach a Quarterfinal.
Sevilla has been in poor form recently and only able to get 2 wins out of 7 games. And those two wins were in Copa Del Rey against Cadiz. Nico Pareja (2 appearances) and Carrico (3 appearances) won't play due to injury. Sevilla has confirmed that this is their squad: Sergio Rico, David Soria, Ondoa, Corchia, Mercado, Lenglet, Escudero, Carole, Geis, Pizarro, Nzonzi, Banega, Correa, Jesús Navas, Sarabia, Nolito, Franco Vázquez, Ben Yedder, Muriel
Sevilla will try their best not to conceded and will be happy with a draw in this 1st leg. While Atletico Madrid will go for a win. Both clubs have played this season in Atletico's home, and Atletico won 2-0. Atletico Madrid has kept 4 clean sheet in their last 4 games & Sevilla has only scored 4 goals in their last 5 games (2 of the games they fail to score).
With a team who has very solid defense like Atletico Madrid, I think it's possible that this game won't be both team to score. I see 2.1 as a good value for Atletico Madrid to win this game with clean sheet at their own home ground.
