Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla last five H2Hs

Sevilla 1-0 Atletico Madrid – 4th April 2021

Sevilla played Atletico Madrid in Paril Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium with the away side leading La Liga. The game marked the start of the title run-in with ten games left of the season and it went just about as badly as possible for the league leaders. They were sluggish throughout and ultimately lost to a Marcus Acuna header. It could have been much worse for Atletico with Jan Oblak saving a Sevilla penalty in the 8th minute.

Sevilla 2-1 Atletico Madrid – 18th December 2021

Sevilla made it back-to-back home wins against Atletico in December 2021 when they ran out 2-1 winners at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium. Ivan Rakitic gave Sevilla an early lead before Felipe levelled things up before the break. Then, in the 88th minute, Lucas Ocampos got retribution for his penalty miss in the previous Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla H2H, scoring the all-important winner.

Atletico Madrid 1-1 Sevilla – 15th May 2022

In the penultimate game of the 2021/22 season, Sevilla visited the Wanda Metropolitano needing a point to secure Champions League football for the 22/23 season. Atletico had very little to play for as they could no longer catch Real Madrid at the top of the table but they wanted to give Luis Suarez a good send-off in his final home game for the club. Gimenez gave the home team the lead before En Nesyri equalised late on to give Sevilla the point they needed.

Sevilla 0-2 Atletico Madrid – 1st October 2022

Atletico Madrid secured their first away win against Sevilla in four years in October 2022 when they ran out 2-0 winners at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium. Sevilla were in the midst of a poor start to the 22/23 season and Atletico took full advantage with the goals coming from Marcos Llorente and Alvaro Morata.

Atletico Madrid 6-1 Sevilla– 4th March 2023

The most recent Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla H2H came in March 2023 with Atletico Madrid dishing out a 6-1 hammering to their old rivals. The goals came from Depay (2), Morata (2), Griezmann and Carrasco in what was Atletico's largest-ever victory over Sevilla. The match left Sevilla just two point above the drop zone and manager, Jorge Sampioli, was sacked two weeks later.

Potential MVP – Antoine Griezmann

Antoine Griezmann recently picked up the award for La Liga's most decisive player for the 22/23 season and there hasn't been a better player than him in the division so far this season. At the age of 32, he has reinvented himself as an output machine and he has 11 goals to his name in La Liga so far this season.

The Frenchman scored twice in Ateltico's thrilling 3-3 draw with Getafe in the week and looked the most likely player to win it for Simeone's side. He will be the first name on the team sheet for the match against Sevilla, a team he has scored against nine times in his career.

Key trend

Looking at the Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla last five H2Hs, home advantage is seemingly key in this fixture. This is even more the case when it comes to Atletico Madrid as Sevilla haven't recorded a league away win against Atleti in 15 years. We are going for another home win here, in what we anticipate to be a high-scoring match.
