League: Italian Serie A
Atletico Madrid – Huesca
Pick: Atletico Madrid to Win


Straightforward evening ahead for Atleti

Atletico Madrid responded well to pressure by smashing five goals past Eibar here on Sunday and Diego Simeone’s side should earn a comfortable victory over relegation battling Huesca in midweek.

Rarely do Atleti tear teams apart but that was very much the case here at the weekend as both Angel Correa and Marcos Llorente waded in with a double salvo.

The manner of their success will give Los Colchoneros renewed confidence that they can fend off Real Madrid and Barcelona in the title race and they can move a step closer to glory on Thursday night.

Atleti have won 12 and lost just one of their 16 home matches this season and their consistency has once again been built upon the foundation of a water tight defence. Simeone’s side have kept nine clean sheets and have conceded just nine goals, so we fancy the hosts to bank another win to nil in this fixture.

Huesca have lost eight of their 16 away trips and have failed to net in three of their last seven outings on the road, so our wager rates a solid enhancement to backing Atleti in the match betting alone and we’re also forecasting a 2-0 correct score.
