Atlético Madrid will honor captain and longtime defensive anchor Diego Godín following Saturday evening’s match against Sevilla.

Earlier this week, Godín confirmed he will leave Atlético at season’s end, and Saturday will be his very last home game in red and white. He will end his nine-year tenure with 389 appearances (assuming he plays at Levante next week), eight trophies and hopefully one last win against a team furiously chasing the final Champions League place LaLiga has to offer.

Sevilla are in desperation mode, particularly after last week’s 3-0 drubbing by Leganés. The Andalusians must win and get a lot of help — they don’t have the head-to-head advantage over either Getafe or Valencia — in order to finish fourth. Their chances appear slim, particularly given their history in this fixture — Joaquín Caparrós’ clan are winless in the past 10 league contests at Estadio Vicente Calderón and A Stadium Called Wanda.

Meanwhile, Atleti need one point from their remaining two fixtures to clinch second place for the second straight season, with Champions League qualification assured long ago.

Possible XI

Oblak; Juanfran, Montero, Godín, Filipe Luís; Thomas, Rodri, Saúl, Koke; Griezmann, Morata.

Predicted scoreline

Atlético 3-1 Sevilla.
