La Liga fans will have an early Halloween treat on a huge Sunday, as two of the top-four square off in a massive La Liga clash. Sevilla will be facing off against Atletico Madrid at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

The visitors Atletico Madrid are in great form, as they are currently leading La Liga with 18 points. The Madrid have been undefeated in all competitions this season, which puts them at a twelve game unbeaten streak.

Atletico Madrid has swung into a great form after their 1-1 tie against Barcelona at Camp Nou. Since then, they have won all of their games, which totals to a 5-game winning streak. They have kept clean sheets in four out of their last five fixtures.

Sevilla just like Atletico has been in great form, as they have only lost one game this season, which was a 3-1 loss to Athletic Bilbao. Since then, Sevilla is on a four-game winning streak.

Sevilla is close to their visitors in the La Liga table with them sitting in third place with seventeen points. Whoever wins this game can be a top of the table, hence why this fixture is so important.

Prediction: Both teams have been playing great football as of late, and I believe this will be an exciting fixture. In my opinion, if anyone is betting on this game, I strongly suggest to save your money because this is without a doubt a pick em game, but of you look at the series history, both of these teams are even. Though Simeone’s squad are playing this fixture on the road, their chances of losing this game are very slim. After talking about this fixture, the best result for me is a 2-2 draw.
