Los Rojiblancos were made to pay for not taking their chances on Saturday night at Espanyol, with the Catalans scoring from one of their only attacks of the game.
Atletico will be confident then despite the defeat and William Hill offer them at just 7/20 (1.35) to claim a win. The hosts for their part can be backed at 8/1 (9.00) while the draw is available at 19/5 (4.80).
Yet really there is no reason to oppose Atleti and even less when you consider their opponents' form.
Austria Vienna have won just one of their last six games in their domestic league and have been struggling in front of goal.
Atletico meanwhile boast the second best defence in Spain, and should prove far too strong for the Austrians. Backing a win for Diego Simeone's men outright is not an option at the price quoted, but a win and a clean sheet for the side from Madrid is offered at a tempting 19/20 (1.95).
Atleti score plenty and do not concede many which means against an inferior, goal-shy side, this bet is a perfectly logical option.
