Espanyol vs Atletico Madrid Prediction 22 December 2017

Tournament: Spanish Primera
Location: RCDE Stadium
Match date: 22.12.2017 at 20:30

On December 22 2017 at 20:30 at the RCDE Stadium in the upcoming game of the 17th matchday of the Spanish national elite division La Liga the local Espanyol are playing against their guests Atletico from Madrid.

Espanyol are considered to be one of the middle-peasants of their national championship and yet at the moment they seem to be in some kind of a recession. In their 16 matches played in the current campaign of the Primera Division they only have 17 points with 13:21 goal difference which let them take the 16th place in the standings. Yet in the away games Espanyol look really poor. In fact, they gained most of their points at the domestic stadium.

As for Atletico Madrid, they haven’t lost a single game in the current championship yet. As a result, they are obviously among the leaders of the league. Anyway, they are still lower than Barcelona because they drew three games more compared to the Catalonians. Before the upcoming game Atletico are in wonderful conditions as they won their latest four games in a row. Moreover, they gained 21 points in their latest 9 away matches played which is the best result of the league. We must remind you that the reliable defense of Atletico is probably their main reason for success as they have only conceded 7 goals in their 16 matches already played.

Atletico Madrid have an obvious advantage in the history of head-to-heads of the teams. Last time the teams met was on April 22 and Atletico won 0:1 in it. We must also admit that Atletico mostly outplayed the teams from the second half of the standings with just one goal difference or so. All of the facts mentioned above make us conclude that the visitors are much more likely to win in the upcoming match.
