Soccer predictions this week for Atl Madrid – Alaves
La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid will aim only for the win when they host Deportivo Alaves on Sunday. This is a match from the 28th round of the competition. Let’s preview it in these soccer predictions for this week for today.
After being eliminated from the Champions League during the week Atletico will now focus entirely on winning La Liga. Los Colchoneros are currently leaders in the division with 63 points which puts them just four points ahead of the second Barcelona. As you can see, title race is intense now. Neither one of the teams in contention for the title can’t make mistakes now.
During the week Atletico Madrid didn’t make the performance they hoped for in the Champions League. Diego Simeone’s team faced Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge, but got eliminated from the competition after a 0-2 defeat. Now La Liga is the only competition Los Colchoneros remain at.
In their last La Liga game Atletico lost two points during the visit to Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez. The game ended with a 0-0 draw.
Deportivo Alaves are desperate for points as they are currently in the relegation zone of La Liga. Abelardo’s team is 18th in the standings with 23 points and they are just one point behind the 17th Elche. This gives them some better hopes for survival right now, that’s for sure.
In their last game Alaves made only a draw during the home game against Cadiz at the Estadio de Mendizorroza. Joselu opened the score with a goal from a penalty kick, but Alex equalised with a late goal for the visitors also from a penalty kick.
That’s the soccer predictions for this week for the La Liga fixture between Atletico Madrid and Cadiz at the Wanda Metropolitano. Surely Los Colchoneros are the favourites here, but Alaves are hungry for points – let’s see if they can make an impression here.
