The Rojiblancos of diego Simeone had a summer of movement, the most noteworthy of which observed Portuguese wonderkid Joao Felix unite on a record 120M-euro bargain from Benfica. Atleti seemed strong in drama — for what that is worth scoring a 7-3 win over a 2-1 win over Juventus and Real Madrid at New Jersey .
Historical trends also tell us Simeones squad is a really safe bet: Atletico finished ahead of Real Madrid in 2017-18 and 2018-19, also hasnt finished outside the top three (or below anybody aside from Bar??a and Real) because 2011-12.
There are just two other real challengers for Atletico from Sevilla (+800) and Valencia (+600); the former hasnt finished ahead of Atletico since 2010-11, while the latter has not since 2011-12.
It remains to be seen whether Sevilla can be steered by boss Julen Lopetegui to being a squad back; the Spain youth coach fought in his prior high-profile club endeavor.
In Valencia, a great summer has seen director Marcelino add quality pieces from goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen (Barcelona) and ahead Maxi Gomez (Celta); final year proved to be a crazy ride to the Valencians, that began horribly but caught fire down the stretch to finish fourth, along with their summertime developments should have them in the top five this season.
Its intriguing to note a scarcity of chances love for Getafe (+4000), which ended a club-best 5th in La Liga last year but is anticipated to struggle with valve congestion and regress into a typical mid-table finish.
Given that Atletico added some quality and the club of Simeone always punches above its squads burden on paper, its unlikely either will give it a significant run with this bet.
Select: Atletico Madrid (-250)
Let us have fun and keep it civil.
