Espanyol – Atletico Madrid Prediction & Preview and Betting Tips (22.04.2017)


Prediction for Espanyol – Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid to win @ 1.75

A striking match on this day of Saturday is the one that will hold Espanyol and Atletico Madrid for a new date of the Santander League.


In my opinion, the “mattress” box is a favorite due to the collective potential that it has, which is maintained when it acts away from home. For that reason and considering that the Atleti has become more effective facing the goal, we advise you to play a few euros to the simple triumph of those directed by Simeone. At stake is staying in the fight for qualifying directly to the next Champions League.

Take into account that Espanyol arrives toned to this duel after beating 0-1 to Leganés of visit and to add 49 points in the general table. The team has added 3 wins in their last 4 league appearances, their goal being to see if they can qualify for the next Europa League.

On the other hand do not forget that the picture “parakeet” has added diverse results in his field, lacking something more regularity to not yield so many points to his people (8 wins, 5 equalities and 3 drops in total). Of course, he has won his last 4 games at home, selling to Alaves a few days ago (1-0).

Atletico Madrid

Continuing with the analysis you should know that Atletico Madrid comes from playing against Leicester in England last Wednesday (). In the Spanish tournament, he thrashed Osasuna 3-0 at Calderon, scoring 65 points in the overall standings (13 of the last 15 contests). Thanks to this victory he remains firm in his fight to classify directly to the next Champions League.

To finish we tell you that the “mattresses” have added 7 wins, 6 draws and 3 falls playing away from the Calderon. He has scored 11 points in his last 5 outings, equaling 1-1 against Real Madrid at the Bernabéu 2 weeks ago.

Against this background I play for a victory of the visiting team due to the following reasons: First because Atletico Madrid is a compact team by nature, standing out for being balanced between lines and effective midfield forward. Second because the “mattress” box always manages to score and win as a visitor (3 wins in their last 5 outs). And thirdly because Espanyol, so it is a complicated set to overcome in Catalan territory, can end up losing by some punctual play or by some stopped ball propitiated by its rival. Faced with this reality, we believe that the squad of the “Cholo” can win by a difference goal at least (0-1, 0-2 or 1-2 after the final whistle).
