Atletico Madrid to Win with Handicap (-1)

Rayo Majadahonda vs Atletico Madrid – Team news and lineups
The home team will have an exclusive chance to host the Spanish champions, so we expect this to be an exciting duel. Here's a closer look at both teams:
After their surprising win over Malaga in the last round of Copa del Rey, Rayo Majadahonda now has a chance to host the champions, which will be a great day for the club. The team that competes in Primer RFEF is currently sixth in that league and close to securing a spot in the playoffs for promotion to La Liga 2. In the last five games, they have two wins, two draws, and one loss.
At the moment, Rayo Majadahonda has no injuries or coronavirus cases to report. With that in mind, we can expect to see a similar lineup to the one that played in the last round of Copa del Rey against Malaga, especially since the team was off since that match.
Rayo Majadahonda predicted lineup:
Fernandez – I Lopez, Bernal, Casado, Osei – M Garcia, Tassembedo – J Gomez, Susaeta, Albiach – Sanchez
The reigning champions of Spain have finally broken their four game losing streak with a win over Rayo Vallecano this weekend, so that will certainly have a huge impact on their confidence, as well as their chances of defending the title. However, those chances seem slim at the moment since Real Madrid is fourteen points ahead of them right now, although they have played one game more than Atletico.
For their upcoming game in Copa del Rey, we can expect a mixed lineup. After all, Atletico is facing a team from the third rank of Spanish football. In addition to this, Griezmann, Herrera, Felix, Savic, Koke, and Llorente are all out due to injuries and COVID-19.
Atletico Madrid predicted lineup:
Lecomte – Vrsaljko, Felipe, Hermoso, Lodi – Serrano, Martin, Kondogbia – Cunha, Correa, Carrasco
