Wanda Metropolitano will host the Saturday clash, April 2, 2022. In which Atletico Madrid takes on Deportivo Alaves, the 30th round Spanish LaLiga, Wanda Metropolitano will be the venue
Although Coach Diego Simeone was disappointed by his team’s performance in the first half, they are determined to improve their game and secure their place among the top 4. Atletico Madrid has made significant progress over the past weeks.
The Colchoneros have won five consecutive LaLiga titles, including a 1-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano. Deportivo Alaves is currently at the same level in LaLiga as the previous three seasons, but they seem to be in a difficult battle for survival as they are five points behind the safety zone. El Glorioso has not experienced a victory in almost two months and is coming into this match after three consecutive losses.
Estadio Mendizorroza was a tough match for both teams. However, Deportivo Alaves managed a win of just 1-0 to bring joy to their fans. Atletico Madrid will be looking to exact revenge on Deportivo Alaves now that they are in great form. I think they will achieve all three points in an easy and routine manner.
Although Atletico Madrid won each of their previous four home matches against Deportivo Alaves with one goal, I believe they will be more sharp in attack. Alaves’ away form this season is quite bad. El Glorioso have lost 10 out of 14 away games and their defense has been poor, scoring only 30 goals. Although Atletico Madrid may not be used to destroying their opponents, it is clear that they are capable of winning comfortably with at least two goals.
