Espanyol Vs Atletico Madrid Live Online Commentary
Atletico Madrid have seriously increased their form in the most recent period and they will enter into the match with Espanyol as favourites to maintain the fine shape. However, the hosts Espanyol will have something to say as well because the team led by ex-Atletico Madrid head coach Quique Sanchez Flores has been incredible on the home stadium in this season. Espanyol have five victories in last seven matches at RCDE Stadium which definitely gives a solid value to the 4/1 odds offered by the bookies on their win over Atletico.
On the other side, Diego Simeone and his men engaged the defense mode which seems to be bringing the results for the team from Vicente Calderon Stadium. The visitors conceded only a single goal in last four league fixtures (the one in a 1-1 draw with Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu). Keeping a clean sheet against Espanyol will be a real challenge because the hosts scored at last a goal in each of their last 11 fixtures on the home court.
