Atletico Madrid will travel to Sevilla on Sunday night with both teams in a similar run of form having won three and lost tow of their last five. Sevilla though have not lost at home this season and will look to continue that terrific record when they face off against the Champions on Sunday evening. Sevilla though played a tough game away in Germany on thursday but prevailed 3-2 and will look to Bacca who has sixteen goals this season and is having a career year in La Liga. Mbia and Iborra have been impressive of late for Sevilla and they will be key figures if Sevilla are to upset the Champions on Sunday although Mbia is carrying an injury and may miss the game.
Atletico Madrid will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Bayer Leverkusen midweek. Last year's Champions league runners up will be looking to make another deep run but will have to overcome that first leg loss. Diego Simeone has had a tough time getting the balance right as his team is still as solid as ever defensively but have had problems scoring goals. Greizmann and Mandzukich came in during the summer and Torres came in during the January window. There is loads of talent up front but getting the balance has been tough. Koke is still suspended following the boot throwing incident but Atletico will still fancy their chances of winning here.
Another game here that looks very tight on paper and with Sevilla's strong home record it is hard to take Atletico Madrid as an away favourite. I'm going to take the draw here another one on a Sunday that looks like it may be filled with draws.
