Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla: Prediction
Atletico Madrid have the advantage of the home turf and they are the favourites in this fixture. They won the last five matches they played at home. Also, they conceded 5 goals (never more than a goal per match) at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan since February. So, we believe the hosts will be happy with a narrow win, without allowing their opponents to score
