Soccer predictions this week for Betis – Atl Madrid
Atletico Madrid will try to remain on top of La Liga when they visit Real Betis on Sunday. This is a game from the 30th round of the league so let’s take a look at it in these soccer predictions for this week.
Atletico Madrid are still leaders in La Liga, but their lead is very thin – they are just one point ahead of the second Barcelona. Diego Simeone’s team has 66 points while Barca are just behind with 65. The third Real Madrid, who are reigning champions, are also dangerously close being third with 63 points.
Los Colchoneros suffered their third defeat for the season last week. Atleti had a very tough task against Sevilla at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and their game ended with a 0-1 defeat. Simeone’s boys tried their best, but Sevilla took the win with a winning goal from Marcos Acuna.
Diego Simeone was hit with awful news in the last few days. The club’s best striker Luis Suarez will miss a few weeks of action because of injury. Suarez have scored 19 La Liga goals so far and certainly he will be missed by the leader. Most likely Angel Correa will replace him in the starting eleven on Sunday.
Real Betis are playing to keep their place in Top 6 of La Liga. The Andalusians are currently 6th with 46 points, but on par with the 7th Villarreal. They need to win on Sunday and they know it.
This is a very good first season for Betis’ manager Manuel Pellegrini. The Chilean tactician successfully made Real Betis a winning team again. If the manages to qualify the club for Europa League this would be a very good achievement.
That’s our soccer predictions for this week for the La Liga clash between Real Betis and Atletico Madrid at the Benito Villamarin. Can Atleti keep their position of leaders? Let’s see.
