After a strong performance in each of their last two games in La Liga, Atletico Madrid will be looking to make them three in a row when they host Real Betis at the Vicente Calderon in the 18th round of La Liga.
Atletico Madrid are sitting in 4th place in the league table with 31 points from 9 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses. They have scored 31 goals and conceded 14 since the start of the season.
Stefan Savic is expected to be preferred at centre-back after Jose Maria Gimenez put in an unconvincing performance against Las Palmas. Juanfran could be deployed on the right-hand side of midfield in Diego Simeone’s customary 4-4-2.
The hosts have been up and down all season. The team have lost only one game in their last 5 La Liga fixtures and are looking strong at the moment. They have collected 10 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last game was against SD Eibar away from home where they won 2-0.
Betis are sitting in 14th place in the league table with 21 points from 6 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses. They have scored 20 goals and conceded 29 since the start of the season.
Bruno Gonzalez and Aissa Mandi are missing for the away side at centre-back, due to suspension and international duty respectively. Jose Carlos and Ryan Donk should be drafted into a three-man central defensive unit as a result, with Darko Brasanac slotting into holding midfield.
The visitors have lacked consistency in their recent few games in La Liga. Betis have won two of their last five league matches. The team have collected 7 points from a possible 15 in their that same period. Their last game was against Leganes at home where they won 2-0.
