Atleti take to Seville to maintain unbeaten run

Atletico Madrid head south west this weekend to face a Real Betis side currently on a poor run of form.

Sitting 11th in La Liga, the Seville side have only earned 2 points from their last 5 matches, including defeats against Espanyol, Las Palmas and a 5-0 hammering against Eibar.

The club also crashed out of the Copa Del Rey this week following a shock 6-5 aggregate defeat against Segunda side Cadiz.

Atleti go in to the match still undefeated in the league, with leaders Barcelona being the only other side not to have dropped points so far this season.

The two sides’ goalkeepers, Jan Oblak and Marc Andre Ter-Stegen have both conceded the least amount of goals in the league this year.

Los Colchoneros have picked up 11 out of the last possible 15 points, and secured a place in the Europa League Round of 32 Stage after drawing 1-1 with English side, Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in Wednesday’s Champions League match.

The main concern for the side is that Antoine Griezmann ended that match having to undergo medical examinations following a problem with his right hamstring and could miss the clash at the Estadio Benito Villamarín.

The absence of the Frenchman could seem problematic for Diego Simeone’s team, however they haven’t lost in their last eight matches in the Estadio Benito Villamarín (six wins and two draws), and Simeone has never been defeated to a team managed by Quique Setién.

After the draw in London, Jan Oblak said to the press “We have to pick ourselves up and think about our upcoming match. In the league, Copa and Europa League we’re going to fight until the end.”
