Even with the La Liga title – and probably even second place – out of both these sides’ reach, this looks set to be a big game at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday. There is still a faint chance of Real Betis catching Atlético and Sevilla in the race for a top four finish.

Atlético Madrid vs. Sevilla Predictions and Preview
Sevilla have now proven that they are a top four club in La Liga but will want to keep on proving themselves against the other big clubs in the division. After allowing Barcelona to creep back into the top two this season, this fixture is now a test of how well Julen Lopetegui’s side have improved. It is a shame that there isn’t more riding on the outcome, as there was a hope that Sevilla and/or Atlético might be able to make the league even more competitive.
Results have been a little shaky in the last few months, as the pressure mounted. Sevilla, in particular, have drawn far too many games to mount a serious title challenge and thoughts will already be turning to how the squads can be improved to go again next season.
Atlético Madrid vs. Sevilla full time result odds
Although finishing above Real Madrid and Barcelona is always a tough task for any of the other 36 clubs in La Liga, both Atlético Madrid and Sevilla will have probably have hoped to have done a little better. With Barca struggling earlier in the season, there was the chance for both to capitalize. Now a Champions League berth will have to suffice and that could mean a tight game here. The draw is offered at around 2/1.
Atlético Madrid vs. Sevilla both teams to score odds
Atlético Madrid used to be the defensive kings in La Liga but Diego Simeone experimented with a more expansive game this season. It did not always work and things have been shored up at the back a little more in recent months. Sevilla have just about the best defensive record in the division as well, so a bet against both teams scoring might be the way to go here.
Atlético Madrid vs. Sevilla correct score odds
Atlético needed a penalty to overcome a weakened Real in the Madrid derby last week and have not really used their attacking talent as well as possible at times this season. João Felix may miss this one as well and with the pressure still on both sides there is a very good chance that there might not be any goals at all to celebrate on Sunday. A goalless draw will be priced at around 6/1.
Atlético Madrid vs. Sevilla first goalscorer odds
This could well be a cagey affair, with both sides more intent on not losing a valuable point than winning three. We have already mentioned that a goalless draw could be the final result but if a first goalscorer is to be found it is probably more likely to be in the home side. Matheus Cunha has not been able to score as many as he did at Hertha Berlin, so Ángel Correra could be the best bet.
