Estadio de Mendizorroza will host Tuesday’s football game between Deportivo Alaves and Atletico Madrid, the two teams who have different ambitions for the 2019/2020 La Liga season. The hosts are eager to secure yet another La Liga survival, whereas the visitors aim to stay in the race for the trophy. Deportivo Alaves failed to make a flying start to the season and given Atletico Madrid’s performance in a 2-0 win over Athletic Club, we believe that away win should be considered.
A low-scoring affair is on the cards and we predict that one goal is going to separate the two teams in the midweek fixture. Alvaro Morata has found his goal-scoring touch of late and we predict that the former Chelsea and Juventus striker is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. In previous four meetings between the two teams los Rojiblancos emerged triumphant.
The highly rated footballer left Brommapojkarna soon after being promoted to the first team set-up, joining Premier League giants Manchester City.And while he never got a chance to shine at Etihad Stadium, Guidetti proved a great deal of potential during loan spells with Feyenoord and Celtic, and eventually earned a permanent contract with La Liga high flyers Celta Vigo.The talented striker has yet to nail down a regular starting berth at Balaidos, but he has been using the time spent on the pitch wisely, and continued his goalscoring form in Spain’s top flight.
Playing alongside Nolito and Iago Aspas at club level as well as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Berg on international stage is bound to further aid the player’s development, and many believe he will go on to become one of Sweden’s best ever strikers.
Guidetti has so far only made a handful of appearances for Blagult, but that is bound to change in years to come.
Atletico Madrid have won 10 La Liga titles, but they have yet to lift the European Cup (Champions League) trophy.
Los Rojiblancos have won 10 Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) trophies and it has to be noted that they defeated their bitter local rivals Real Madrid in the 2012/2013 Spanish Cup final.
The rivalry between the two capital clubs is pretty big and El Madrileno is regarded as one of the most exciting derbies in the world football.
Atletico Madrid played two Champions League finals under Diego Simeone, but they failed to beat Real Madrid in the title games (2013/2014 and 2015/2016).
However, the Argentine tactician helped Atletico Madrid win the La Liga trophy in 2014 and, no doubt, he is one of the most successful coaches in the history of the capital club.
