Los Colchoneros are getting closer and closer to another qualification for the Champions League. That’s their main goal at the moment. Let’s preview this game in our free sure soccer tips.
After beating Osasuna, Real Valladolid and Levante in their last three matches Atletico Madrid are now third in the league with 55 points won. Cholo Simeone’s team is getting in a better shape right now, which allowed them to get a 6 points advantage in front of the 5th Getafe. Their goal right now is to keep this advantage and play again in Europe’s best competition next season.
For Atletico Madrid it was not the easiest game when they faced Levante few days ago. Simeone and his players traveled to Valencia and they got a difficult 1-0 win at the Camilo Cano. Levante’s Bruno scored himself an own goal after 15 minutes of playing. Diego Simeone started Alvaro Morata and Joao Felix from the bench, but both of them appeared on the pitch in the second half.
Felipe and Sime Vrsaljko remain sidelined for Atletico. They are not going to be avaliable for selection by Diego Simeone.
Deportivo Alaves lost three of their last four matches in La Liga, so we could hardly compliment them for their current form. Lucky for them, Alaves got enough points during the season, so they are currently 13th in the standings. The problem is their current shape, which is not that good.
Few days ago Alaves suffered their 14th loss for the season. Asier Garitano’s team hosted Osasuna, but the Pamplonians won the game with 1-0.
