Atletico Madrid Prediction

Atletico Madrid now find themselves 12 points behind Barcelona with just five league matches remaining of the La Liga season, so it looks like they’ll have to make do with 2nd place as they prepare for the visit of 5th placed Valencia to their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday night.

The hosts have been in excellent form of late, winning four of their last five matches overall in the Spanish top flight with their only blip during this sequence being a 2-0 defeat away at La Liga champions in waiting, Barcelona.

Recent wins against Deportivo Alaves, Girona, Celta Vigo and Eibar have placed Atletico Madrid firmly in the top four and with a 16 point cushion ahead of this evening’s opponents, Valencia, their place in next season’s Champions League is now assured.

The hosts also possess an excellent home record too with stats of 13-2-1 27/7 and they head into this clash having won their last four matches on the trot with victories over Villarreal, Leganes, Girona and Celta Vigo.

 

Key-Facts – Atletico Madrid v Valencia

  • Atletico Madrid have won their last 4 home matches on the trot in La Liga
  • Valencia have won 6 of their last 8 matches overall in La Liga
  • Atletico Madrid have kept 12 clean sheets in their 16 home matches to date

 

Valencia Prediction

Valencia have also shown strong form of late as the visitors have registered six wins from their last eight matches overall in La Liga with wins against Athletic Bilbao, Girona, Sevilla, Real Madrid, Levante and Real Betis.

The visitors have suffered just one defeat out of their last 15 matches overall in the Spanish top flight which was a 2-0 loss away at Rayo Vallecano, but they’ve produced a great run of form over a lengthy period which has helped them into the Europa League spot.

However, the visitors are now within striking distance of a top four finish and a Champions League spot as they trail 4th placed Getafe by just two points and indeed, a win this evening at Atletico Madrid would see them leapfrog Getafe into 4th place for the time being.

Valencia have also lost just once out of their last seven matches on the road amidst an overall away record of 6-6-4 17/18, but if there is a slight chink in their armour then perhaps it’s a lack of goals on their travels to date this season.

The visitors will be up against Atletico Madrid’s solid defensive unit which has kept a total of 12 clean sheets to date, and I fancy they won’t get things all their own way here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Atletico Madrid have been impressive on home turf this season and they should get across the line here, but perhaps give the handicap on the hosts.
