Betis hosts Atletico Madrid in round 27 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, March 6th at Estadio Benito Villamarín (Sevilla)
Betis is in 3rd place in the championship standings with 46 points after 26 rounds. Manuel Pellegrini’s team gained 14 victories and four draws and suffered eight defeats. Despite the failures in recent games, the Green-Whites continue to struggle in several tournaments. A draw against Zenit St. Petersburg in the Europa League match (0-0) did not prevent them from advancing to the 1/8 finals due to the away victory a week earlier (2-3). And a 2-1 defeat to Sevilla in the derby did not deprive Beticos of their place in the top three. On March 3, they did not win again, tying against Rayo Vallecano in the second leg of the Spanish Cup semifinals (1-1). Betis escaped defeat in the 92nd minute thanks to the efforts of Borja Iglesias and made it to the final of the tournament on aggregate.

Atletico Madrid is ranked fifth in La Liga with 45 points. The Mattress Makers have 13 victories, six draws, and seven defeats after 25 rounds. They have shown unstable results throughout most of the season, but the last three games ended without losses. The Indians missed the victory in the home game of the Champions League 1/8 finals against Man United (1-1) and won two consecutive games in LaLiga. Atletico Madrid hammered Osasuna away (0-3) and gained a home victory over Celta Vigo on February 26 (2-0).
Atlético Madrid has had a good history of head-to-head matches versus Betis lately. In the last five games, the metropolitan team has gained four victories and one draw, which happened in Andalucia in April 2021 (1-1). The opponents crossed paths in the 12th round of the current LaLiga draw. The game on October 31 in the capital of Spain brought a landslide victory to the hosts (3-0). Yannick Ferreira Carrasco and Joao Felix scored a goal each, and defender German Pezzella turned the ball into his own net. Betis performs well in the current season, but Pellegrini’s players are getting tired with every match. Since the beginning of February, the Green-Whites have played nine official matches, and their future opponents had only six games. Atlético Madrid stopped losing and established good cooperation in attack, scoring six goals in the last three matches. Simeone’s team was knocked out of the Spanish Cup and got a small respite and a chance to better prepare for the trip to Sevilla. Most likely, the superiority in freshness will predetermine the outcome of the upcoming game in favor of the Mattress Makers.
