On Sunday, May 15, in Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, the match of the thirty-seventh round of the Spanish Football Championship will take place, in which Atlético and Andalusian Sevilla will play. The starting whistle of referee Jose Maria Sanchez Martinez will sound at 20:30 Kyiv time.
The team of Diego Simeone in this football year lost everything that was possible to lose. At one point in the season, there was even a risk that Atlético would not represent the country in the next UEFA Champions League, but the greatest fears of Mattress fans did not come true. However, this does not at all remove responsibility from the players of the capital club in the fight for the final third line of the national championship, which, given the loss of the champion title, will still be considered an insufficient result.
One of the most important victories at the end of the season, Atlético got a week ago, when he managed to beat Real Madrid in the Madrid derby, which took away the title from Simeone’s team. It was in that game that the character of the “kolchoneros” was clearly visible, who fiercely grabbed the cherished three points in the confrontation with an irreconcilable opponent. This success was also important because earlier that day, Sevilla once again lost points, which its then pursuer simply could not use. That is why the Madrid club will have one advantage point before the upcoming game.
The Andalusian team had a very peppy move, when it occasionally even led the championship race in the middle of the season, but Sevilla and Sevilla, in order to start moping so much at one fine moment that two rounds before the end of the championship, they also risk staying without the Champions League for next season. It’s hard to believe that Julen Lopetegui’s team was so upset by the fact that they didn’t get into the actual home final of the UEFA Europa League because of Andriy Yarmolenko’s goal in the 1/8 finals against West Ham in London, but recently the Nervions have given up trying play for results.
Three draws in a row in the top four will not be forgiven, unless you are Atlético with a giant margin of the last season’s end. Actually, the “mattress” took advantage of their chance, and the Andalusians, if they cannot beat Mallorca (0:0) and Cadiz (1:1) at the decisive moment, it is not clear what they want from themselves at the end of the football year. The defeat of the “Nervions” in the upcoming game will give Betis a chance to raise the intrigue before the last round, while the victory will give the “bronze”. Or another draw from Lopetegui’s team?
Atletico: Cloud – Llorente, Felipe, Savic, Lodi – Ferreira Carrasco, Kondogbia, de Paul, Koke – Correa, Felix.
“Seville”: Bunu – Akunya, Kunde, Diego Carlos, Navas – Jordan, Rakitic – Corona, D. Gomez, Lamela – Mir.
Forecast for confrontation
We believe that Simeone’s team will show their trademark football in the upcoming game. Our bet will be the position – Atlético will win and TM 2.5 with a coefficient of 3.90 on the Parimatch line.
