Atletico Madrid vs Deportivo – Under pressure Atletico need result

| 11.12.2010

Atletico Madrid head into their game with Deportivo La Coruna on the back of a three match losing streak and coach Quique Sanchez Florez is under pressure to save his job.

Considering they are winless in their last three, the 8/15 may not tempt many into a bet, but Atletico have won six of their last seven meetings with and the last time Deportivo won at the Vincente Calderon, Atletico were relegated.

With Atletico currently sitting eighth in La Liga, the chances of them being relegated are very slim and Deportivo may face a backlash after three straight losses for the Madrid team.

Diego Forlan has managed five goals in his five games against Deportivo and the Uruguay international is 3/1 to get the first goal, but in the last seven league games, either Sergio Aguero has scored or Atletico have failed to find the net.

Aguero is 7/2 to score first and that may be all it takes as Deportivo have failed to score in five of their seven away trips this season and Atletico are 11/8 to win to nil.

Sevilla vs Almeria

Sevilla are short at 4/9 to beat Almeria and it’s because they’ve won four of their last five home games with the Andalucian club.

But like Atletico, Sevilla are in poor form and have lost their last three league games, including two at home, but the last time Sevilla lost three consecutive home games was in 2002.

Almeria are yet to win away from home this season and their best hope lies in coming away with a point, which is priced at 16/5.

But they will have to keep the forward pairing of Alvaro Negred and Freddie Kanoute quiet and both are 3/1 and 7/2 to score first respectively.

A £10 double on Atletico Madrid and Sevilla winning would return £22.10. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
