atletico betting tips and odds

A club with a clear identity and a breathtaking blend of organisation, fury, intensity, speed and skill, Atletico de Madrid will be looking to take things to the next level this season. Few sides are as well-equipped for success as they are and, in Diego Simeone, they have a masterful manager who fears no one.

Atletico de Madrid: Tactics, Principles

There aren’t many teams that have a more definitive style than Atletico. Coach Diego Simeone takes pride in his team’s fury and workrate, constructing a well-oiled machine that still allows for plenty of flair and creativity.

And, despite Atletico de Madrid’s reputation for being a team that relies on brute force, they have an abundance of flair players in their squad. The likes of Luis Suárez, João Félix and Antoine Griezmann are capable of moments of magic. Blend that kind of talent with the solidity and experience of their captain Koke, and you have a recipe for success.

Simeone favours a 4-4-2 system, although regularly uses a 3-5-2 when up against tougher opposition. Rather than pressing, like many of the top teams in Europe nowadays, Atletico tend to employ a mid press – only pressing in the mid and defensive third.

Atletico are devastating on the counter attack – with pacy wingers and strikers who have world class composure in the final third.

Atletico de Madrid: LA Liga PREDICTIONS & What to Expect?

Over the last decade, Atletico have been fantastic in La Liga. They’ve definitely broken up the power base – where once Real Madrid and Barcelona were completely dominant, now Atletico are clear title contenders every season.

Having won La Liga in 2013/14 and again in 2020/2021, it’s clear that they’ve got what it takes to go all the way. In Luis Suárez they have an experienced striker – still one of the best finishers in world football. Add the incredibly talented Antoine Griezmann into the mix and you’ve got a team that could well top the table at the end of the season.

Betway have Atletico de Madrid at 13/2 to win La Liga this season.

Atletico de Madrid: UEFA Champions League PREDICTIONS & What to Expect?

Atletico have struggled to reproduce their Champions League form from the early days of Simeone’s reign, when they twice reached the final, before losing to rivals Real Madrid. With the power shift from La Liga teams towards Premier League sides Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea, they’ll find it hard to challenge for European football’s highest honour.

I expect to see Atletico reach the qualifying stage, where they could well be undone by one of the very best European teams. (Click to read our latest UEFA Champions League betting tips and predictions for this week).

Atletico de Madrid are 33/1 to win the Uefa Champions League at both Betway and Bet 365.

Atletico de Madrid: Copa del Rey PREDICTIONS & What to Expect?

For a team that has been so good in La Liga in recent years, Atletico have a surprisingly bad record in the Copa del Rey. They only won the cup once in recent history – in the 2012/2013 season – and haven’t even made the semi finals in the last five years.

In fact, Atletico have been on the receiving end of some of Spain’s biggest upsets in recent years, most notably the 1-0 defeat to Segunda B side UE Cornellá in the second round of the 2020/2021 Copa del Rey.

Whatever the reason for Atletico’s lack of success in the Copa del Rey, it hasn’t stopped the bookies installing them as one of the favourites this year. At Bet 365, they are currently third favourite at 5/1 to lift the trophy.
