Atletico Madrid - Week 9

Real Sociedad vs. Malaga

 

Match Date: 01 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Anoeta

 

Real Sociedad

La Real’s present form screams of desperation as the squad hit rock bottom last week. Pitted against the newly-promoted Cordoba, the (former) La Liga powerhouse could only generate a frustrating even steven finish.

 

Back in Anoeta, the club will attempt to impress its own crowd. As a matter of fact, the term “attempt” is an understatement. Real Sociedad really needs to win their upcoming match. This has very little to do with the supporters’ reaction. Instead, it is more on securing survival for the next season.

 

So far, Real Sociedad has only won once in their nine (9) appearances. Due to its lackluster performance, speculations have it that its head honcho, Jagoba Arrasate will be replaced soon.

 

Malaga

Malaga successfully rose to the 7th spot of Primera Division after thrashing Rayo Vallecano with four (4) goals and keeping a clean sheet. Although aware of the threats and possibilities of losing the match to the host, Malaga’s confidence is more than enough to outlast its upcoming opponent.

 

Prediction

Real Sociedad 1-3 Malaga

Atletico Madrid vs. Cordoba

 

Match Date: 01 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Vicente Calderon

 

Atletico Madrid

Despite an inconsistent start, Atletico Madrid remains a top title contender. At any rate, only two (2) points separate them from the current league leader, Barcelona.
Considering this aspect at hand, Atletico will readily exploit the home court advantage that it has against Cordoba. Expect the online betting favorite to pull off a massive victory in the said match.

 

Cordoba

An improved Cordoba emerged during the face-off against Real Sociedad. On the 87th minute, Cisco netted an equalizer  that catapulted its rank to the 18th spot of the league table.

 

Although they continue to remain in the relegation zone, the stalemate was a clear indication of their journey to the top.

 

Prediction

Atletico Madrid 4-1 Cordoba
