Atlético de Madrid receives Real Betis with the goal to win another match that will allow them to keep the fourth place achieved last weekend after beating Eibar by 0-2. Our team will try to repeat the win at the Vicente Calderón, like against Las Palmas in the last League match (1-0). The team from Sevilla comes from beating Leganés at the Villamarín (2-0), so they will be a complicated rival, despite Betis losing the last three away games (Alavés, Eibar and Villarreal).
Diego Pablo Simeone does not trust the Andalucians and said so in the pre-match, noting that it will be "a tough and difficult match." For this match, he has called 18 players, with Carrasco being on the list again after being medically released. Bernabé and Keidi, from the reserve team, are also among those chosen by the manager to play against Betis.
It will be the second home match in one week, and next Thursday we have another King’s Cup game against Eibar, again, at the Vicente Calderón, to play the first leg match of the quarter-finals.
