Atletico Madrid vs Espanyol: Atletico Madrid will be hoping to recover from a tough ten days of LaLiga and Champions League action as they welcome Espanyol to the Civitas Metropolitano.

Match Preview

Atletico Madrid failed to win against Porto in the last group stage match of UEFA Champions League

On Sunday, Atletico Madrid will welcome Espanyol to their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in an attempt to avenge a stunning 3-2 loss to relegation-threatened Cadiz. Los Rojiblancos are anxious to get back into the title fight, and we have no doubt that they will attack los Periquitos with all of their might. The home team should be without Koke, Lemar, and Llorente due to injury.

Espanyol played one goal equalizer game against Mallorca in their recent laliga match

On the other hand, the Catalans came from behind to pull even with Mallorca on the road, but they have continued to be in danger. There is a lot of potential in betting on Diego Simeone’s squad because Espanyol are not known for being good travelers.

Here is all the information you require about the game.

Team News

Koke (thigh) and Thomas Lemar (muscular) are expected to miss another game for the hosts, who have not been immune to injury issues this season.

While Saul is suspended for receiving too many yellow cards, Marcos Llorente, who has been dealing with a calf issue since early October, might be able to sit on the bench this weekend.

While the hosts are only going forward without fullbacks Ruben Sanchez and Adria Pedrosa due to an ongoing ailment, the visitors are not currently facing any new injury problems.

To help Los Pericos, who have only won away games once this year, Martin Braithwaite should line up alongside Joselu and Javi Puado up front.

Atletico Madrid possible starting lineup;

Ter Stegen, Balde, Alonso, Pique, Bellerin, Pedri, De Jong, Gavi, Torres, Lewandowski, Dembele

Espanyol possible starting lineup;

Martinez, Akieme, Ely, Babic, Mendes, Da la Hoz, Melero, Embarba, Robertone, Baptistao, Toure

Atletico Madrid vs Espanyol Prediction

Atletico Madrid has been difficult to predict thus far in the season, but this one feels too important for Diego Simeone’s team to drop.

With the exception of one unexpected triumph, their opponents are famously bad travelers and shouldn’t present Los Colchoneros with too many difficulties as they attempt to resume their winning streak after a difficult couple of weeks.

We say: Barcelona 3-1 Almeria
