Athletico Madrid vs. Sevilla Prediction and Match Analysis

With the race for Champions League football intensifying for the top four La Liga teams, Athletico Madrid will be looking to redeem their chances as they play host to Sevilla at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. The match schedules for 7th March with kickoff at 18:00 GMT.

A 1-1 draw to side Espanyol was enough to lockout Atletico Madrid’s chances of entering the top four in La Liga. The side is currently fifth with two points clear offside Sevilla. A couple of mixed performances has seen the side fail to mark their stay as one of the top tier clubs in La Liga.

Despite securing a ticket with a home win over Liverpool in the Champions League, much awaits the side at Anfield. Diego Simone will be looking to close in on the gap with a win securing the side’s top-four chances.

Sevilla is having an impressive season under Coach Julen Lopetegui. The side is currently third in La Liga with nine points clear of Barcelona. The side will be heading into the match with two successive wins over Getafe and Osasuna.

Will the brilliance of Lopetegui outmatch the sternness of Diego Simone?
