ShareClose Comments
Both sides have not been at their best in front of goal lately and this might continue in the Spanish capital

Atletico Madrid entertain Valencia at Wanda Metropolitano for their Spanish Primera Division encounter on Sunday.

Los Rojiblancos will look to reduce the gap on league leaders, Barcelona who are 11 points above them. They will also be wary of their closest rivals, Valencia, who are just a point adrift of them. As a result of this, they will be leaving no stone unturned in their quest to pick maximum points.

This should not be a difficult task for them to achieve having won four of their previous five meetings with their visitors.

The 10-time league champions have not tasted defeat in their last six meetings with their visitors and the bookies are offering (1.10) for them to avoid defeat in the duel.

Three of the previous four meetings between Atleti and Valencia has seen the first half end in stalemate and Bet365 is quoting (2.37) for that period to end that way again.
