Atletico will be keen on making it five straight wins in the La Liga when they continue their impressive 2020-21 season campaign against Sevilla. The match schedules for Tuesday with kickoff at 11:30 pm.
Diego Simone enjoys life on top of the La Liga table, having picked 38 points from their opening 15 league matches. On the other hand, Sevilla is currently sixth on the table, while two points behind fourth-placed Villarreal.
Firstly, Atletico looked set to continue their impressive form last Saturday at Wanda Metropolitano before their match with Athletic Bilbao was called off due to bad weather. Therefore, it means that the side only has 15 games played so far this season.
The fact that the Red and Whites have three games in hand and are in front of Barcelona and Real Madrid is a testimony of their impressive form. Atletico sits one point ahead of second-placed Real Madrid and four points clear of Barcelona. The side has 12 wins, two draws, and one loss in their 15 matches.
On the other hand, Julen Lopetegui comes off an impressive 3-2 win over Real Sociedad at Estadio Ramon on Saturday. It was the night for Youssef En-Nesryi netting a hattrick. Sevilla has an impressive run of form, winning four of their last six matches while remaining unbeaten in the process to sit sixth on the table.
