Marseille vs Atl. Madrid PREVIEW & PREDICTION 16/05/2018


The Spanish box starts as a favorite for betting houses due to its greater individual and collective hierarchy. However, if we consider that it is also characterized by defending very well, we believe that many of the Gallic attacks will end from the corner. Given this reality, we believe that the option “Marseille plus 4.5 corners” is interesting to bet, since it is an offensive team and dampened by nature.

Atlético de Madrid:

The “colchoneros” come from playing against Getafe last Saturday for the penultimate date of the Spanish tournament (triumph 0-1). Now his goal is to win this tournament and add a new star in his track record under the command of “Cholo” Simeone. It is expected that the team remains compact between the lines and that it tries to be effective with the chances it may generate thanks to its balanced style.

He came to this instance after falling out of the Champions League and spent several phases quietly, except the previous one. He only suffered against Arsenal, after equalizing 1-1 in England and winning 1-0 at home. In both games he had to work hard, having to do much more at the Emirates Stadium. In that game, the “Gunners” registered 11 corners in favor, putting it totally into the Spanish team.

Olympique Marseille:

The team does not come well from the mood to give away valuable points as a visitor in their fight to qualify for the next Champions League. The team no longer depends on itself to have 74 units and be fourth in the table (surpassed by Lyon and Monaco). His last chance will be played against Amiens on the last day of Ligue1 and in this grand final, since if he wins it he will be able to sneak into the most important club event in Europe.

In the corners section, we tell you that the French are a real machine to make shots from the flag. In the 1-1 draw against Angers as a visitor, he completed 9 corners in total (7 in the second half). In front of visiting Salzburg, he got 6 corners in regular time, specifying 5 in the last 20 minutes of play. Then in extra time he did 2 more. Before Nice as a local in the Velodrome he finished 9 and against Guingamp he obtained a whopping 11 corner kicks (8 of them in the last 15 ‘minutes of the game after going all the way to the attack).

They do not face directly from the Champions League of 2008, there being no previous argument to analyze this comparison.

PREDICTION: Both teams to score / NO @ 1.72
