Our man in Madrid Phil Kitromilides believes Atletico will have no problems against the side they easily beat two weeks agoOne of the form teams not only in Spain but Europe as a whole, Atletico Madrid are absolutely flying.
Their 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday made it 11 wins from 12 in La Liga and saw them maintain their place just a point behind leaders Barcelona in the table.
This evening Diego Simeone's men face an Austria Vienna side they comfortably saw off in Austria a couple of weeks ago and Bet365 price a home win at the Vicente Calderon at just 1/9 (1.11).
The visitors for their part are the biggest price for any side in this round of Champions League matches offered at a whopping 28/1 (29.00) to record the unlikiest of victories.
Yet Atleti will almost certainly get the job done and the only question is just how big will their margin of victory be.
Austria Vienna's domestic form is in sharp contrast to that of their hosts, with Nenad Bjelica's side winning just one of their last five matches.
With Atletico scoring freely, a comfortable home vicotry is on the cards and a repeat of the 3-0 scoreline from the side's previous meeting is offered at 5/1 (6.00).
Predicting the correct score is something of a long shot
so instead backing Atletico to win with a -2 goal handicap at 5/6 (1.83) looks more infinitely more appealing.
