While Antoine Griezmann had a rest because of yellow cards, Kevin Gameiro 's goal from a penalty has pleased Madrilenians with three points in the championship.
The underdog Deportivo was an underdog and as we also supposed, the rival couldn't fight against reliable defense of the Mattressers. At the same time Atletico wasn’t very strong in the attack and could not gain impressive advantage but for minimum it was enough.
The club from Madrid has won all four matches of a spring part of the Europa League. The team hasn’t missed any goal in home matches (1:0 with Copenhagen and 3:0 against Lokomotiv) and was destroying its rivals during the away matches with the score 4:1 and 5:1, respectively.
Jorge Jesus and his team have suffered humiliating loss in Braga (0:1) and have even more lagged behind the leaders. At the same time the third line isn’t also safe as the Lions are caught by the yesterday's rivals being at a distance of one point.
We can’t say that Sporting is very confident in Euro cups. With Astana (3:1 and 3:3 home matches) the defense wasn’t very reliable. We can’t say the same about away match with Viktoria (1:2 injury time) as 2:0 wasn't enough for passing the Czech barrier.
Together with a match in Plzeň the Lions have lost 5 out of 8 last away games. Besides Astana, the team has managed to win over Tondela (2:1) and Chaves (2:1). But the Lions have missed goals during this series.
On the way to triumph in the Europa League 2010 the Mattressers under Radamel Falcao's leadership have passed the Portuguese club in 1/8 only thanks to goals in the away matches (0:0 home match, 2:2 away match).
Atlético to win 1.31
Draw – 4.99
Sporting to win 12.40
with the squad force the Argentina expert to minimize risk in defense
as in case of maneuver he will have little chance to change anything.
Sporting has proved to be low-productive team thanks to the game in
the Champions League group so is doesn’t argue with our choice.
