Following two 0-0 draws, Atlético Madrid are back to winning ways. A 1-0 home win in the first game at the Wanda Metropolitano last weekend was backed up by an impressive 2-1 win at San Mamés against midweek opponents Athletic Bilbao. Now, Atlético face their toughest test of the season as Sevilla come to town. Here is your live stream online guide as to how and where to watch.
The second- and third-place teams in LaLiga will face off in Madrid on Saturday, in what will be only the second game to be hosted at the new stadium — and folks, expect to see some fireworks.
It’s likely that this Atlético lineup will look pretty similar to the one fielded in the tie against Athletic on Wednesday. Right-back Šime Vrsaljko is back in the squad but may not start as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury. Midfielder Augusto Fernández is back in training but his hamstring injury will keep him out of this contest.
It’ll be tough to separate the two sides come Saturday, because both teams are off to impressive starts. However, in the past, los colchoneros have won close to half of their meetings with Sevilla, while just losing less than a quarter of the time. Under Diego Simeone, Atlético have lost just once in 13 matches.
In what could be the fixture of the weekend, Atlético (statistically) have the upper hand.
D: Juanfran, Savić, Godín, Filipe Luís
