Competition: La Liga
Market: Atletico Madrid win
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on what has been a real domestic romp, Atletico Madrid will make the trip to an already-relegated Elche on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, only continuing on what has been a woeful La Liga campaign this season, Elche have long since accepted their top-flight relegation. Coming under a huge amount of scrutiny and sat a staggering 18 points adrift of safety heading into this weekend’s fixtures, Sebastian Beccacece’s men were last seen putting in yet another downbeat display. Making an immediate return to losing ways as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat away at Almeria, Los Franjiverdes have lost each of their last nine La Liga appearances – a run that stems all the way back to a 1-1 draw against Valladolid on March 11th. With their extended struggle highlighted by a 4-0 drumming at home against Barcelona when returning from the international break, Elche will be more than aware that they face another huge challenge on Sunday afternoon. It should also be noted Beccacece’s side have recorded just a single victory at the Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero since back on February 4th.
As for the visitors, putting in yet another rampant display last week as they stormed their way to a 5-1 romp at home against Cadiz, Atletico Madrid are enjoying what has been a stellar purple patch. Leading the chase to claim a silver medal finish, Diego Simeone’s men should find the mood in their camp at a real high. Really hitting top gear since opening 2023, the former Spanish champions have now won each of their last three La Liga appearances – a run that has seen them bag 13 strikes. Really finding what has been a remarkable clinical edge in the final third since returning from March’s international break, Atletico should be smelling the chance to make another domestic statement on Sunday afternoon. Landing a routine 2-0 victory when they welcomed Elche to the capital for their reverse La Liga meeting on December 29th, we are expecting a similar outcome from the Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero this weekend.
