Atletico Madrid is hosting Real Betis at Wanda Metropolitano in round 7 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Atletico Madrid is playing decent soccer in LaLiga so far, but they just got demolished in the Champions League against Bayern Munich on the road. In the LaLiga standings, Atletico is in 8th place with 8 points, 8 scored goals, and 1 conceded a goal in their first 4 games. Atletico Madrid is still undefeated in LaLiga so far this season, as the matter of fact, they are the only undefeated team left. In their last LaLiga match against Celta on the road, Atletico has had 48% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 80% of the correct passes. With 1 scored goal in each half, Atletico Madrid has won this game 0-2. Suarez is Atletico’s leading goalscorer with 3 goals and 1 assist so far this season, while Correa added 1 goal and 2 assists. Vrsaljko is the only injured player for Atletico Madrid, while Gimenez is still questionable for this game. Atletico Madrid is a good team with some great players, but they will need to bounce back from their terrible loss in the Champions League as soon as possible because both LaLiga and the Champions League are moving on, and if Atletico wants to stay close to the top, they need to continue winning games.
Betis is playing hot and cold so far this season, and they have 3 wins and 3 losses in their first 6 games of the season. Betis has scored 7 goals while conceding 9 goals so far this season, and they are in 7th place in the standings with 9 points. The defense has been the biggest problem for Betis so far, and they are playing incredibly inconsistent soccer on the defensive end. Tello and Carvalho have each scored 2 goals for Betis so far this season, while Joaquin and Canales added 2 assists each. Martin and Camarasa are both injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this game. In their latest LaLiga match against Real Sociedad at home, Betis has had 55% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 6 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. This was an exciting game where we saw 3 canceled goals and 3 good goals. Unfortunately for Betis, none of the good goals were on their side. Betis has lost this match 0-3 at home. I can’t help myself but to like Betis because they are a good team, and they can play some of the best soccer in LaLiga when they put their heads together, the only problem for Betis is that that isn’t happening enough. Betis will be fighting for the Europa League, and if they can get just a little bit more consistent, they might just end up there.
Both teams are coming into this game from the terrible losses. The trends are on Atletico’s side in this match, and they haven’t lost any of their last 8 home games against Betis. The last 4 home games between these two teams ended with less than 3 goals, but I don’t think this will be the case here. Atletico is scoring a solid amount of goals, while Betis can certainly score, but their defense is terrible.
