Atletico Madrid vs Sporting Lisbon
LIS vs ATL MATCH PREVIEW:
After featuring in two Champions League finals in three years, Atletico Madrid have made themselves a European heavyweight under their Argentine manager Diego Simeone.
But this season has been nothing short of a disaster for the Los Rojiblancos. Though they were drawn in the group of death with English Champions Chelsea and Italian giant AS Roma in it, they were expected to at least finish the group 2nd and qualify for the knockout stage.
The 2013 la Liga Champions weren’t that bad in the group stage as they lost just one game, but the four drawn games took a toll on their ambitions and they ended up finishing 3rd in the group.
Now they are in the Europa League and the favorites to lift the trophy they won in 2012.
Atletico faced Copenhagen and Lokomotiv Moscow in the last-32 and last-16 respectively and made the easy work of them. One thing for sure Sporting Lisbon are certainly a step up from those opponents they faced in the last two rounds.
The Los Rojiblancos won their last game 1-0 against Deportivo in La Liga, which was their 12th win in their last 14 games in all competitions.
The visitors, on the other hand, hardly made themselves a favor for this match as they lost three of their last six games heading into this match.
While away from home, things are even worse for this Portuguese side. They have lost five times in the last 8 games they played on the road and considering Atletico’s home form is almost perfect as Diego Simeone’s men won 14 of their last 16 games, it’s looking a very difficult match for the visitors as far as the first leg is concerned.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Atletico Madrid are the hot-favorites to life their third Europa League title followed by Arsenal. They are playing the first leg at home and considering their imperious home form this season, it looks unlikely that the visitors come away from Wanda Metropolitano with something other than a defeat.
Atletico to win 3-0.
