Atletico Madrid vs Espanyol Team News

Atletico Madrid nearly dropped the whole set of points when they came up against Valladolid last weekend, with the hosts trailing 0-2 at half time. Then goals from Fernando Calero and Atletico midfielder Saul's own one restored the parity before 63 minutes, only for a late Griezmann strike to put the visitors in front again to secure the three points and go toe-to-toe with Sevilla in 2nd on 31 points, 3 less than leaders Barcelona.

Much to Espanyol's disappointment, they once again failed to get a satisfactory result in La Liga, where Rubi's team are winless in their last five outings, having got stuck with 21 points over a month and a half now. However, they have actually won during this period; it was a cup win over Segunda side Cadiz CF 1-0 to earn them a passage into the last 16, although the progress was helped by the away goals rule after the sides had played 2-2 on aggregate.

Periquitos may feel devastated going into this clash in Madrid on the back of such a poor performance, but they will surely be mindful of the two successes they achieved last season, beating Atleti twice at home and away with this fixture's score across two games making perfect reading - 3-0 for Espanyol.

Why are our predictions certain to succeed?

These teams aren't so generous with goals when they get to meet each other: 10 of their last 11 meetings have ended with either side coming short of goals. Needless to say those games were important and this one isn't an exception, but given the current predicament Espanyol are in, they simply cannot come away empty-handed from Madrid on Saturday evening.

The least they must do here is to try and fight off an impressive Atletico side by netting on their own soil. Easier said than done, yes, but this is quite achievable for Rubi's men as they sent in two last time out at Wanda Metropolitano.
