Real Betis vs Atletico Madrid predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as both clubs look to end the year on a high.
Real Betis vs Atletico Madrid Preview
Atletico Madrid head to the scene of one of their defeats last season this weekend with a tricky game to end the year at the Benito Villamarin against Real Betis. It’s a Betis side that has turned a corner over the past month with an improved run of results heading into this match which has raised hopes in the green and white half of Seville of a European challenge in 2020.
Betis have collected 10 points from their last 4 games with the only dropped points coming in the 2-2 draw at Espanyol last time out. Those results have really eased the pressure on Rubi who looked in danger of losing his job only a month ago but now looks pretty secure for the foreseeable future at least.
The pressure on Diego Simeone also seems to have eased a touch. While very few Atleti fans are serious about their desire for a new coach, there has been a tangible sense of discontent with the way the team has been performing at times this season. Relatively comfortable home wins over Osasuna and Lokomotiv Moscow in the space of a few days have given their season a brighter outlook but they will know this is likely to be a much tougher test.
Atleti have a doubt over the fitness of Koke who remains a key player which could see both Thomas Lemar and Hector Herrera start in midfield for this one. Betis meanwhile are likely to go with Borja Iglesias up top again with the striker now looking like he might get a run in the team ahead of Loren Moron following his start and goal last week against his former employers.
Real Betis vs Atletico Madrid Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
Betis have a pretty strong home record this season with 17 points from their 9 home outings and they are starting to look like a side with a clearer sense of what they want to do. They certainly look well capable of taking a point here against an Atleti side with only a 25% away win ratio in La Liga this term (5 of their 8 road games have ended level).
