- Updated: 5th May 2018
Atlético de Madrid vs Espanyol – La Liga: Atlético de Madrid and Espanyol face off this Sunday night at the Wanda Metropolitano
on a match of the La Liga’s 36th round.
Atlético de Madrid is in 2nd place of La Liga with 75 points conquered, with 22 victories, 9 draws and 4 losses.
On the 35 rounds already played, the colchoneros count with 55 goals scored and 18 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.1 goals per match.
Their record at home has been very positive, since they have 12 wins on the 17 matches they’ve played at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Simeone’s team is coming off 2 victories, one in La Liga, against Alavés and other against Arsenal in the Europa League, both by 1-0.
Espanyol occupies the 15th place of La Liga with 40 points conquered, thanks to a record of 9 victories, 13 draws and 13 losses.
Their goal ratio counts with 29 goals scored and 41 goals conceded, presenting an average of 2 goals per match, the lowest of the competition.
Their performance away from Catalunya has been very weak, since they have only gotten 2 wins on the 17 rounds they’ve played as visitors.
Their moment of form isn’t the most positive, since they have only gotten 1 victory on the last 7 matches.
Atlético de Madrid vs Espanyol – Betting Tip and Prediction:
There is value in exploring the side of the team from the capital, taking into consideration the difference of quality between the two teams and how strong the colchoneros are at home.
I believe Atlético will win and I also think this match will finish with less than 2.5 goals scored, since these teams present two of the
lowest averages in the league in terms of goals per match.
The side led by Simeone usually doesn’t batter other teams, prioritizing control of the match and the result, so I don’t think they will score more than 2 or 3 goals.
In turn, Espanyol will also have a lot of difficulties to score, since they will face one of the best teams in Europe when it comes to defending,
and they have in the Wanda Metropolitano their kind of safehouse, with Atlético not having conceded a single goal on the last 12 matches they’ve played in front of their own fans.
