Diego Simeone stayed on last summer after Atletico Madrid evolved their style and they have been generally impressive and a lot more entertaining to watch this season but there is a real chance that Los Rojiblancos’ campaign completely unravels in all competitions this season after a major dip in their form.

In midweek, they were hammered 3-0 by Athletic Club at San Mames in the second-leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final. Atletico were held to a 2-2 draw by Almeria last weekend, leaving them in a bit of bother in terms of finishing in the top four and they are also 1-0 down to Inter in their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie.


Manuel Pellegrini is also a bit of pressure in charge of Real Betis as the Andalusians fight for a place in the top seven in La Liga. The Andalusians are in excellent form in the league but Pellegrini has been heavily criticised for overseeing a two-legged defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in the knockout playoffs of the UEFA Europa Conference League.

Betis come into this one on the back of an impressive 3-1 defeat of Athletic Club at the Benito Villamarin in their most recent outing, last weekend, with goals from Chimy Avila and Johnny Cardoso, as well as an own goal scored by Yuri Berchiche. They have now suffered just one defeat in their last seven matches in the league.



Atletico Madrid are missing several key players for this weekend with the likes of Jose Maria Gimenez and Antoine Griezmann remaining unavailable for Diego Simeone.

PREDICTED XI (5-3-2): Oblak; Molina, Savic, Witsel, Hermoso, Lino; De Paul, Koke, Llorente; Morata, Correa

UNAVAILABLE: Griezmann (Injured), Gimenez (Injured), Azpilicueta (Injured), Lemar (Injured), Vitolo (Injured)



Real Betis are missing several key players for this weekend’s trip to the capital with the likes of Marc Bartra, Nabil Fekir, Isco and Ayoze Perez all unavailable for the Andalusians.

PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Silva; Bellerin, Pezzella, Sokratis, Miranda; Cardoso, Roca; Fornals, Abde Ez, Avila; Willian Jose

UNAVAILABLE: Fekir (Injured), Altimira (Injured), Bakambu (Injured), Ruibal (Injured), Abner (Injured), Isco (Injured), Ayoze Perez (Injured), Rodriguez (Injured), Bartra (Injured)



This is set to be a really intriguing encounter at the Metropolitano as Atletico Madrid look to recover and rebuild in order to finish in the top four and also find some form ahead of their second-leg against Inter in ten days or so. Real Betis are in excellent form but, not necessarily typical of a Manuel Pellegrini side, Betis have scored just 31 goals and been tight at the back with these two having conceded just 54 between them and a low-scoring, even contest is to be expected on Sunday.
