Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla 23/9/2017
Atletico Madrid are winning matches in a ruthless manner, and that has brought back comparisons to the all-conquering title-winning side of 2013/14. With 11 points, Diego Simeone’s side currently sit third, thanks to a hard-fought 2-1 win at Athletic Bilbao in midweek. Yannick Ferreira Carrasco scored both goals. But Atletico are about to meet a team that is riding on red-hot form. Sevilla have edged new boys Girona and Las Palmas 1-0 over the past five days, and sit just behind leaders Barcelona. Grinding out results has come with a gritty defence, where they have manufactured four clean sheets win on the bounce. Atletico will play this match at their grand-looking Metropolitano, and hope that this can soon turn into a lucky fortress. They won the home-warming opener last weekend, a 1-0 win over Malaga.
