We should be in for a good one at the Wanda Metropolitano on the penultimate weekend of the La Liga season as second place Atlético Madrid play host to sixth placed Sevilla.


No match for Barcelona in the end, Atlético have at least secured Champion's League football once again and need just one more point to ensure they finish second and equally as importantly ahead of big rivals Real Madrid.


Sevilla meanwhile face a real fight if they are to achieve a top four finish. Three points behind fourth placed Getafé with only two games to play, they realistically need to be winning their final two games to have any chance.


There was nothing to split the sides in the reverse of this fixture, with the game in Sevilla finishing in a 1-1 draw. Atlético came out on top with a 2-0 win in the game here last season.


José Giménez, Lucas Hernández and Stefan Savic are all out injured for the home side; Nehuén Pérez is away on international duty and Diego Costa is suspended. Maximilian Wöber is out injured for Sevilla whilst Éver Banega is suspended.


Atlético have been excellent at home this season, with just the one defeat in their eighteen games here to date. They have been outstanding at the back as ever with 13 clean sheets across those eighteen games.


If Sevilla do not make the Champion's League it will be their away from which costs them. They have won only five of eighteen on the road, losing seven of their last nine and failing to score in six of those.


Sevilla may need to win this but don't look to be playing well enough to do so against a rock-solid Atlético outfit.


Prediction: Atlético Madrid 2 - 0 Sevilla
