I heard Vegas odds are favoring Sevilla 4 to 1.
Gotta be honest, I was more optimistic going into Camp Nou than I am going into this match. But then again #YEN last season with his Atlético glory… history doesn’t repeat, but it rhymes.
We can hope, right?

Angel Correa was handed a straight red in the Madrid derby last weekend, meaning that the Argentina international will be suspended for Atletico on Saturday night.
Nahuel Molina is also banned due to the booking that he picked up in the same match, while Reinildo saw his season end with the serious knee injury that he suffered against the champions.
Sergio Reguilon and Rodrigo De Paul are also on the sidelines through injury, but there is a chance that Geoffrey Kondogbia could be back in the squad for the Red and Whites.
The team’s defensive absentees could mean that Matt Doherty makes his debut for the club as a starter, while Gimenez and Alvaro Morata may return to the first XI.
As for Sevilla, Fernando is suspended due to the red card that he picked up against Osasuna last time out.
Meanwhile, Loic Bade, Karim Rekik, Papu Gomez, Marcao and Jesus Manuel Corona remain on the sidelines for the visitors due to injury problems.
Alex Telles and Marcos Acuna could both be back in the starting side for this match, with Bryan Gil potentially dropping down to the bench for the contest on Saturday night.
Youssef En-Nesyri has scored 11 times in all competitions during the 2022-23 campaign, and the Morocco international is again set to lead the line for Sampaoli’s side.
Atletico Madrid possible starting lineup:
Oblak; Doherty, Gimenez, Savic, Hermoso; Llorente, Koke, Barrios, Carrasco; Griezmann, Morata
Sevilla possible starting lineup:
Bounou; Nianzou, Gudelj, Telles; Navas, Rakitic, Gueye, Acuna; Lamela, En-Nesyri, Torres
I don’t think we see that lineup at all…especially with Lamela’s form.
I’m going with:
Navas, Nianzou, Gudelj, Acuna
Jordan, Gueye, Rakitic
Suso, YEN, Ocampos
Papu Gomez (Injured)
Waiting for @TimSpence2 's latest timeline update on Marcão? Have we hit our marks for recovery yet? He’s only been on the team for, say, 8 months…
According to Transfermarkt Marcão isn’t due back until 1st April.
Papu Gomez is supposedly 13th March. No dates for Bade or Rekik.
I was wondering the same.
Is it another “injury”?
Is on TV in the UK?
ViaPlay Sports 1 UK HD If you can get it
Just missed it! Montiel over Navas
Sitting in a small bar in Extremadura. Let’s go boys!
So Simeone will have a plan, Nianzou is the most likely victim.
