      Atletico Madrid vs Reus Predictions

       

      The Catalan side actually took the lead a fortnight ago thanks to a strike from Fran Carbià but a much-changed Atleti fought back to win 2-1 via goals from Luciano Vietto and Saul. Diego Simeone opted not to make any changes in the game instead giving some of his fringe players a full 90 minutes but it was a competitive contest and it could well be again at the Vicente Calderon on Thursday.

      Reus are top of their 20 team section of the Segunda B and have won both their league matches since the 1st leg to cement their promotion challenge. They won’t have completely given up on the idea of causing a shock here and they’re sure to enjoy their brief moment in the spotlight.

      Atletico are sure to make many changes again and even the likes of Saul and Oliver Torres, who started the 1st leg may not feature here. Simeone is likely to opt to keep a few of his bigger names on the bench in case Atleti run into trouble but ideally he won’t want to use any of them with a trip to Malaga to come on Sunday in La Liga and a game where if Atleti avoid defeat they will guarantee themselves top spot in the Spanish top flight at Christmas.

      That will be the priority for sure and that will give Reus, who are one of the stronger lower league sides left in the competition half a chance. They are unlikely to avoid an upset but at 1.875 look good value when starting with a +2 Asian Handicap.

      Atletico don’t possess the strength in depth of a Barcelona or a Real Madrid, particularly defensively where beyond their outstanding first-choice back four they aren’t anywhere near as strong. Therefore an away goal shouldn’t be ruled out and if you fancy a correct scoreline bet consider backing a 2-1 home win at 8/1.
