Atletico Madrid - Levante Betting Preview: Why the hosts are good value to score at least three times

Atletico Madrid have been in super scoring form and there is little to suggest they will end the year with anything other than a high scoring win
Atletico Madrid have the chance to finish 2013 top of the Primera Division, which would be a fitting way to end what has been a stunning 12 months for Diego Simeone's side.

Lifting the Copa del Rey as well as twice defeating city rivals Real Madrid means the year will be remembered as a success no matter what happens here but Atletico will be going all out for the win to end the year in style and keep their considerable momentum going.

bet365 price a victory for Los Rojiblancos at 1/7 (1.14) while Levante can be backed at 16/1 (17.00) to cause what would be a monumental upset.

Atletico have been relentless this year, and there is no reason to think that their intensity will drop in the final game before the Christmas break.

Given their form it is becoming increasingly hard to find value in backing Atletico at home, yet investing in them to score over 2.5 goals at 8/11 (1.72) is certainly worthy of consideration.

This bet has paid out seven times in Atleti's home games this season, and against a lackluster Levante, the league's joint top scorer Diego Costa will fancy his chances of adding a few more to his tally.

Furthermore, this selection has paid out in three of the last four meetings between the sides at the Vicente Calderon.
