Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla what to expect

Diego Simeone is looking to refresh the Atletico approach and play a more attacking game. Despite the departure of Joao Felix they certainly have the resources as the 7-0 route showed. Sevilla are still finding their feet and the transfer market activity or the lack of it haven’t helped. Atletico are certainly the favourites as Sevilla will struggle against a buoyant El Cholo side.
