Atletico Madrid will look to close the gap at the top of the La Liga table when they welcome Alaves at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday at lunchtime. Atletico Madrid were lucky to secure a 1-1 away draw at Girona at the weekend, with their late goal being actually an own-goal from Jonas Ramalho. Alaves, on the other hand, threw away a one-goal lead following Jony’s first-half strike to only record a 1-1 home draw against Sevilla. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Atletico Madrid are currently on an eight-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, winning five in the process. The negative fact is that Los Colchoneros have drawn their most recent two league outings. However, on home soil, Atletico Madrid have won eight and drawn two of their last ten home games across all competitions.
Meanwhile, Alaves have only won once in their last five competitive games. They are winless in two league fixtures at this point, including a 1-1 home draw against Sevilla on Sunday. The most worrying thing is that Alaves have lost three of their last four league trips. Despite the recent slip, Alaves still sit 4th in the league table, just one point behind their Saturday’s opponents.
Atletico Madrid have been very solid on home soil this season and they should be able to grab all three points in this one. Our betting tips and predictions would back Atletico Madrid to win and Under 2.5 goals at odds 2.60.

First Goalscorer odds
Despite the fact that Atletico Madrid have a lot of quality within their ranks, they are lacking firepower at the moment. It’s tricky to predict the first goalscorer here, but we’re going with Diego Costa, although he has scored his first goal of this La Liga campaign two weeks ago. Our first goalscorer prediction is Diego Costa at odds 5.00
