Atletico put in a smart performance at the King Power to get through to the Champions League semi-finals, backing up their convincing 3-0 victory over Osasuna on the weekend. They’re now unbeaten in 10 in all competition now but face a tough trip to an in-form Espanyol side, who will still have aspirations for European football next term, as they lie ninth, but only four points off Bilbao in sixth.
Espanyol have suffered just one defeat in the last six (W4-D1-L1), while at home it’s eight victories from their last 10. However, eight of these encounters were against bottom-half clubs as Sevilla are the only top-half team they’ve beaten at RCDE Stadium this term. Excluding the Big Two, their home record against top-half opposition reads W1-D3-L2, but many of these took place in the early parts of the season, so they’ll be confident of a good showing after gaining some momentum in recent weeks.
Atletico have conceded just twice in a run of six wins from seven unbeaten matches in the league, while on the road they’re unbeaten in eight (W4-D4). However, five of their last six trip have been to bottom-half clubs, whereas their record to top-half non-Big Two sides reads W2-D1-L3. They’re out of the title race, so the priority for Diego Simeone is now the Champions League. With that in mind, we fancy taking them on with Espanyol on the Double Chance at odds-against.
