Competition: La Liga
Market: Atlético Madrid win
Chances: 4/11 @888sport
Seeking to continue what has been a real domestic hustle, Atlético Madrid will travel to the already relegated Elche on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts and continuing their unsuccessful La Liga campaign this season, Elche have long since come to terms with their relegation from the top flight. After coming under scrutiny and a staggering 18 points clear of safety ahead of matches this weekend, Sebastián Beccaceche’s men were last seen delivering yet another pessimistic performance. Immediately back on losing paths when they were defeated 2-1 by Almería, Los Franchiverdes have lost each of their last nine La Liga matches. 11th of March. With their long struggle highlighted by a 4-0 home win against Barcelona on their return from a training break, Elche will be more than aware that another big test lies ahead of them on Sunday afternoon. It should also be noted that Beccaceche’s side have won just one victory at the Manuel Martínez Valero stadium since 4 February.
As for the visitors, who put on another runaway spectacle last week as they stormed their way to a 5-1 home game against Cadiz, Atlético Madrid are enjoying what has been a stellar purple spot. Leading the race for the silver medal, Diego Simeone’s men should find that the mood in their camp is really upbeat. The former Spanish champions have really scored a perfect score since the start of 2023, and so far they have won each of their last three La Liga matches – they have landed 13 strikes in this series. Indeed having found what has been a remarkable clinical advantage in the final third since returning from the international break in March, Atlético should smell the chance to make another domestic announcement on Sunday afternoon. Having picked up a customary 2-0 victory when they welcomed Elche to the capital for their La Liga return leg on December 29, we expect a similar result from Manuel Martínez Valero Stadium this weekend.
