Live on Skysports 1: Sun 19.00 & 21.00: With both sides in patchy form, bet365′s 25/1 about a 3-2 Atletico Madrid win over Zaragoza appeals.
Atletico Madrid are just 4/9 with Betfred to beat Real Zaragoza and to be fair they should prevail but on recent form, the odds are short.
Atletico are winless in 5 (with just a single goal in those games) so Zaragoza fans will be interested by the 7/1 at Coral for an away win but they are without victory on the road this season and it doesn’t look set to change.
Atletico are strong at home and hit 4 past lowly Santander and Gijon a few weeks back, bet365 making them 4/1 to hit 4+ here, and goals could be the route to go down; a game with 4 goals or more is 2/1 with Stan James while Atletico are 25/1 (bet365) to edge a 5-goal thriller 3-2.
Malaga’s home form has been good this season but a thrashing by Real Madrid may have kncoked confidence while Espanyol arrive looking to make it 3 straight away wins; the draw stands out at 5/2 (Skybet).
