Competition: Champions League
Market: Atletico Madrid to finish as Group A winner
Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365
La Liga holders Atletico Madrid begin their Champions League campaign tonight against Olympiakos, but Diego Simeone’s side will be thinking ahead and knowing they stand a very good chance of topping their group.
The Spanish giants have Juventus, Olympiakos and Malmo FF in Group A, and while Juve will provide a threat, it’s worth noting how disappointing Italian sides have been in the competition in the last few years.
Last season, Atletico made the final of the competition, eventually losing to Real Madrid in extra time, but they certainly have the squad and work ethic to make it to the final again. Bet 365 are giving odds of 10/11 for the Red and Whites to top their group, with Malmo and Olympiakos not likely to take points off them in their meetings.
Atletico’s home and away clash against Juventus will likely be the deciding games to see who tops the group, but the Spanish side recently beat Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu so they’ll hardly be fearful of the Serie A holders.
