One of the results of the weekend was Athletico Madrid's win against derby rivals Real Madrid in the Bernebeau, Athletico were fantastic from start to finish, played for each other and gave everything they have in what was a terrific team effort. Turan hit the winner after coming on from the bench, both Greizmann and Turan had positive effects coming off the bench and surely Diego Simeone will start one or both on Tuesday night. Mandzukich is turning out to be a very positive signing showing all the clinical finishing of the player that led Bayern Munich to a Champions league title two years ago. Diego Simeone is again working with a rejuvenated squad after losing three starters in the summer, but the one thing Simeone has done is he has built a terrific team spirit and this was evident at the weekend and will be needed if Atheltico are to push on through this competition.
Olympiakos had a good start to the seasn but this game against Athletico will be a step up. With some decent transfer activity in the summer including bringing in Greek striker Mitroglu along side Afellay and abidal there is reason to be optimistic if your Olympiakos. Looking at the team as a hole there will be some very interested outsiders keeping tabs on the likes of Afellay , Mitroglu and Griezmann.Olmpiakso are likely to struggle in this group with Ahtletco looking to build on an peearance in the Champions League final.
Cant pass up this oppurtunity to get Athletico Madrd here at 10/11 the value is just oo much especially when you consider how well Athletico Madrid played on Saturday. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
