Team News

Real Betis
Atletico
  • Last week, Willian José came off the bench at half time and scored the winning goal late on - he could well start against Atletico over Borja Iglesias.
  • Debutant against Villarreal, Isco conjured up a man of the match performance and will keep his place against Atletico, who he has caused problems for before as a Real Madrid player.
  • Midfielder Koke is out with a hamstring injury that he picked up last week against Granada.
  • In spite of Koke's absence, and with both Memphis Depay and Álvaro Morata really impressing in last week's victory, Diego Simeone could tweak the formation to facilitate all three of his prized attackers.
  • The club are also reported to be closing in on the signing of Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, which would cost around €25m.

Prediction

  • Atletico Madrid look better than ever this season under Diego Simeone's newly devised 'Cholo-Taka' football - a style of play that encourages creating chances from defensive possession.
  • Betis, who also won their opening game of the season, are the obvious underdogs in this one but will be relying on the cauldron-like atmosphere of the Benito Villamarín to take something from this one.
  • the visitors were able to generate twice as many expected goals (2.42) as the hosts did (1.07) in their respective opening games of the season, so are likely to take the three points in this one. Betis, though, are not to be sniffed at this season.

  • Atletico Madrid is a strong team, but I expect the result to be a draw 1-1 because it is away from home and faces a good team
