Atlético de Madrid will face Sevilla in the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán at 8:45 p.m. CET. It'll be a difficult match, as Sevilla are in good form and are unbeaten in their last four matches in all competitions.
However, Sevilla aren't the only team in fine form for this upcoming clash. Our past six matches have ended in a 'rojiblanco' triumph. Also, our Frenchman Kevin Gameiro has been in top goalscoring form and has scored three goals in the past three matches. If he plays, it'll be a special match for him, as he used to defend Sevilla's colours before joining our club.
A win is a must in order to keep our seven point distance from league leaders Barcelona. Diego Pablo Simeone expects a very intense match in the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán and is convinced the players will do everything possible to get the three points.
"We have an important match against a rival that has grown since that Copa match against us. It won’t be a difference maker because we have lots of important matches left," Simeone said. "Tomorrow, we’ll try to to seize control of the match. It’ll be a good match."
