iBet: Back Atletico in the Copa Del Rey
Spanish Copa Del Rey, Semi Final, 1st leg
Atletico Madrid V Seville, kick off 9pm, Sky Sports 4
Back Atletico at 8/11
Even at odds on Atletico Madrid look value to get a first leg lead from tonight’s Kings Cup clash with Seville. Madrid’s record at the Vicente Calderon Stadium is simply remarkable. They have played 11 league games and won all of them, scoring 32 times in the process, a goals record bettered only (just) by the mercurial Barcelona. During this run Diego Simeone’s charges have conceded only six times, which is better than both Barca and their arch rivals Real Madrid, who are four points behind them in La Liga. And based on league form, Seville look likely to be their next victims. They have played 11 league games away from home, winning only one of them and scoring only nine goals. Atletico beat Seville 4-0 in November, with Falcao once again among the goals and if you fancy them to get the job done in style, it’s 33-1 with Betfair and Corals for a repeat. However, Seville finished that game with only eight men. They secured a 0-0 in the away leg in the quarter finals and they may well look to limit the damage here with the second leg still to come in front of their own fans.
We backed Aston Villa for relegation at 6/4 and they are now 8/11 following another home loss, this time to Newcastle, who hadn’t beaten anyone away from home all season previously. Three of Villa’s next four fixtures are against Everton, Arsenal and Manchester City and they look a live runner to finish rock bottom at 100/30 with SkyBet.
