A striking match in this day of Saturday is the one held by Atletico Madrid and Espanyol for a new date of the Santander League.
In my opinion, the “mattress” box is a favorite because of the collective potential and offensive it has, which increases when it acts in the Vicente Calderón. For that reason and considering that he will seek to win again at home after beating in the classic against Real Madrid, we advise you to play a few euros to the simple triumph of those directed by Simeone. In game is to be able to take advantage of the points that leave in the Spanish derby.
Take into account that Atlético Madrid comes from 0-3 thrashing Osasuna as a visitor in Pamplona, managing to cut a streak of negative results in the Spanish league. These days, he has 24 points in the table, being 9 of Real Madrid. The team will seek to extend their mini-winning streak, having previously beaten PSV Champions. It remains offensive and effective when it is proposed.
On the other hand do not forget that the mattress has added positive results in the Vicente Calderon, except the 0-3 thrashing against Real Madrid in the classic. It all started with a 1-1 draw against Alavés, adding 4 wins in a row (last 4-2 against Málaga). For the Champions beat Bayer Munich 1-0 and 2-1 over the hour to Russian Rostov.
Continuing with the analysis you must know that Espanyol is very well at this duel after beating 3-0 to Leganés as a local and ratify a substantial improvement in his football proposal. The team has begun to add several games without losing, managing to move away from the zone of direct descent (2 wins in a row and 11 points in their last 5 presentations). At the moment it has 18 units in the table, being its objective to be able to be classified in positions of European classification.
To finish we tell you that the “parakeets” have obtained positive results playing away from home, product of 3 victories, 2 parities and 1 single fall, which was 6-4 against Sevilla in the first day. Of there, in more, it registered 2 ties and 3 victories, being the last one against Betis and Alavés respectively (0-1 in both exits). Before had equaled 0-0 against Las Palmas.
After everything said I play for the victory of the local squad for the following reasons: First because Atletico Madrid is a compact team and well worked by coach Simeone, who managed to recover the squad with 2 victories in a row after a bad run Results (2-0 against PSV and victory against Osasuna in Pamplona). Second because the picture “mattress” is characterized by being effective in the Calderon, having to win again there after the collapse that meant losing the Madrid derby by a rout. And thirdly because Espanyol, whether a combative rival or a visitor, usually makes some defensive errors that cost the parties in this condition. Faced with this reality, we believe the Atleti can win by a goal difference at least.
