Year 2021, the world is experiencing a global pandemic, football stadiums are empty, the players on the bench are wearing masks and … Atlético de Madrid lead La Liga, having played 3 games fewer than Barca or Real Madrid! It could be the script for a science fiction movie, but it isn’t. On Tuesday they play one of their delayed games and it is against Sevilla, making this the match of the gameweek!
Luis Suárez’s twisted tale
Imagine being the person to tell Luis Suarez that despite being Barcelona’s third top scorer in history, they were going to fire him, push him to a rival and give him zero tribute. It was a mad summer for the Uruguayan, but he’s not slowed down at all. It’s just business as usual for him, and business means goals. He’s competing with his old pal Messi for the Golden Boot and we’re backing him to score against Sevilla. He is fundamental to Ateltico’s rise and suits the club as much as the bear does their logo!
One defeat, but four wins since for Atleti
Their sole Liga defeat at the hands of their arch rivals Real hurt Madrid badly. The good thing is that they have won four games in a row. Their football is not pretty, nor is it over-entertaining, but it’s effective enough. But remember that at the end of the year the trophy is won by the team that has the most points and not most views of their YouTube highlights.
Full time correct score: Atletico 1-0 Sevilla is at 19/4 or 5.75
Youssef En-Nesyri is on fire
Youssef En-Nesyri has gone from relegation with Leganés last season to becoming Sevilla’s main threat. Last week he bagged a hat-trick against Real Sociedad of all teams and he’s turning heads in La Liga!
A match tighter than a Fornite battle between Dele Alli and Dembelé.
The two teams arrive in a very good shape and although they have great forwards, their strong points are defensive. These teams have conceded the fewest goals this season so we’re going for Under 2.5 goals in this one at 1/2 or 1.5
All odds are subject to change.
