The biggest game in La Liga this weekend sees second placed Atletico Madrid travel to the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan to face Sevilla, who are currently just behind them in third place.

Both sides will be keen to put pressure on leaders Barcelona and this could be a crucial game in the race for the Primera Division title.

Latest odds

Sevilla have won each of their last ten home matches in all competitions and SportPesa offer them at 9/5 (2.80) to extend that victorious run on Sunday.

Atletico meanwhile have drawn four of their last five away clashes in La Liga and another stalemate is priced at 21/10 (3.10) with an away win available at 17/10 (2.70).

Team news

Diego Costa remains sidelined until at least February for Atletico having undergone surgery in December. Atleti have question marks in defence where Lucas Hernandez, Filipe Luis and Jose Maria Gimenez have missed the last few games, but the latter should return.

Sevilla are waiting on the fitness of Simon Kjaer and Jesus Navas, who both trained this week and are hopeful of being involved.

Preview

In this fixture last season Atletico produced one of their best away performances in recent years to dismantle the Andalusians by a 5-2 scoreline.

A repeat looks unlikely given Los Rojiblancos' form on the road, plus the solidity of Sevilla at home under new boss Pablo Machin.

Atleti remain the best defensive unit in the division with just 12 goals conceded in 17 matches, however the majority of their goals have come on the road.

The side from the Spanish capital have kept just two clean sheets away from home this term, while Sevilla have netted in each of their last ten games at home in all competitions. 

Tips and predictions

Both teams to score is priced at a tempting 20/21 (1.95) and has paid out in four of the last five meetings between these two sides in all competitions.
