Atletico Madrd - Week 13

Real Sociedad vs. Elche

 

Match Date: 28 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Martinez Valero

 

Real Sociedad

A stunning win against Atletico Madrid and the arrival of David Moyes turned all the attention to La Real. Many are waiting to see improvements from the club that once dominated Spain’s top-flight league.

 

Unfortunately, the team could only snatch a draw, much to the disappointment of many and even their newly appointed manager, Moyes. The former Manchester United head honcho openly admitted his frustration over the result of the previous match, but stressed that they will be showing improvements soon.

 

Elche

Elche’s 2nd consecutive draw caused them to slip in the league table and move closer to the relegation zone. Nevertheless, they made an impressive display of resiliency and team spirit when they pulled off a come from behind equalizer.

 

Fran Escriba shared that their team deserved a win, but perhaps it is much better to put their arguments into action when they visit La Real.

 

Prediction

Real Sociedad 2-0 Elche

Atletico Madrid vs. Deportivo La Coruna

 

Match Date: 30 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Vicente Calderon

 

Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid responded well to its shocking loss to Real Sociedad via nailing a 3-1 win against Malaga. The online betting favorite is back in the title race and is slowly gaining momentum.

 

Playing at home, the squad is expected to present a strong attacking line-up to ensure the three (3) points and hopefully, improve their rank in the top-flight league.

 

Deportivo La Coruna

Deportivo La Coruna should move on from the scoreless stalemate that it had against Real Sociedad and use it as inspiration to put up a good fight against Atletico.

 

Deportivo is currently lingering at the relegation zone and its risk of slipping down is high, thus, the need to be more focused in their match against Atletico Madrid.

 

Prediction

Atletico Madrid 3-0 Deportivo La Coruna
