Atletico Madrid welcomes Sant Andreu
Atletico Madrid welcomes Sant Andreu in a second 1/16-final from the Copa del Rey. Let’s take a look at this clash at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid in our vip soccer bets for today.
Atletico Madrid are entering this clash with one goal advantage from the first leg. In October Diego Simeone’s team won its visit to Sant Andreu with 1-0, thanks to a winning goal from Gelson Martins. Of course, Simeone put a very different starting team on the pitch, giving a playing chance to a lot of his backup players.
Now Atletico just have to finish the job at home ground. Once again we shall expect to see the team’s biggest stars getting a rest by the manager. Most surely Simeone will put a very experimental team on the pitch, filled with backup and young players of the club.
In La Liga Atletico are 3rd in the current standings, trailing on just 3 points behind the leader Barcelona. In their last five games Los Rojiblancos are unbeaten – two wins and three draws, including against Girona in the previous round.
As for Sant Andreu, we shall remind you that this team is currently participating in Spain’s Tercera Division. In this league’s standings Sant Andreu are currently 14th with 21 points and a record of 5 wins, 6 draws and 5 defeats. In their last five games they are without a win – two draws and three defeats.
In our vip soccer bets for today we can conclude that Atletico Madrid are the big favourites here, of course. Diego Simeone’s team is always hungry for more and more trophies and Copa del Rey is a very good opportunity for Atletico to add another title to its resume. Sant Andreu are not a team which can trouble Atletico, so don’t expect anything surprising here.
