Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid Prediction 23 January 2018

Tournament: Copa del Rey
Location: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan
Match date: 23.01.2018 at 20:30

On January 23 2018 at 20:30 at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the upcoming second leg game of the Copa del Rey quarterfinal the local Sevilla are going to host their guests Atletico Madrid.

Sevilla are going through really difficult times now. They outplayed Espanyol on January 20 0:3 and that victory broke their five matches’ long winless series in the national championship. They didn’t really have any serious problems with the squad and yet they just couldn’t win for some reason. As for the first game against Atletico, it was a difficult one for Sevilla. They were the first to concede on the 73rd minute and yet they managed to equalize on the 80th minute a score a winner on the 88th minute. As a result, they have a victory in the away match which makes their chances of making it to the semifinal significantly bigger.

Unlike Sevilla, Atletico sensationally drew Girona 1:1 in the latest match of the national championship. That mistake made their distance to Barcelona 8 points already and it actually created the gap to the leaders which will be extremely difficult to overcome. Besides, that latest game was the second home one in a row for them where they couldn’t win. The first one was against Sevilla in the Copa del Rey.

The teams have already played two games against each other in the current season. In the first leg game of the quarterfinal Sevilla won, as we all know and in the first round game of the national championship Atletico Madrid won 2:0 at home. The teams are the traditional favorites of the league and yet in the latest games they were rather unstable. That’s why it seems to us that there won’t be a lot of goals scored in the upcoming match.
