The preview of...
Sevilla FC-Atlético de Madrid, on the 24th LALiga EA Sports matchday, which will kick off at 18:30 at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán.
The visiting side arrive in Nervión in fourth place on 48 points, in the final Champions League place. After our win at Vallecas we find ourselves in fifteenth place, level with RCD Mallorca and RC Celta on 20 points.
Simeone's side rounded off January by beating Rayo Vallecano at home but have not yet won so far in February. Last weekend an injury-time goal gave they a 1-1 draw in the Madrid derby at the Santiago Bernabéu (1-1), while on Wednesday they lost for the first time in over a year at the Metropolitano. Athletic Club scored in the first half to take a 1-0 back to San Mamés for the second leg of their Copa Del Rey semi-final.
Last three Sevilla FC-Atlético de Madrid
Last season Atlético de Madrid ended a winless run at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán going back to the 2017/18 season, with goals from Llorente and Morata giving them a 2-0 win. In 2021/22 a last-gasp goal from Lucas Ocampos gave us a dramatic three points after Ivan Rakitic's opener had been cancelled out by Felipe. Behind closed doors due to the pandemic in 2020/21, Marcos Acuña scored his first Sevilla goal in a 1-0 win.
