Betting Tip: @ Atletico Madrid to win @ 8/11 with bet365

Watching the first leg tie at the Emirates, you could be forgiven for thinking that Arsenal are a vastly superior team to Atletico Madrid.

After all, the Gunners were massively dominant against their Spanish opponents although it should be borne in mind that Sime Vrsaljko was sent off after ten minutes and the visitors got their backs to the wall and defended for their lives.

It was a masterclass in the art of defending, with Alexandre Lacazette managing to force the breakthrough on the hour mark, although Antoine Griezmann was able to wriggle through and score an equaliser which makes Atleti massive favourites to go through.

We’re surprised that odds of 8/11 are available about a home win on Thursday, with the Mattress Makers having been unbeaten at the Wanda Metropolitano in La Liga this term.

Atletico have conceded four goals in seventeen home matches this term and we have to consider the 9/5 about the Spanish team winning this match without conceding a goal considering it was a feat they nearly managed last week with ten men and away from home.

Diego Simeone has always made sure he has a well-drilled defence that is marshalled by Diego Godin, with compatriot Jose Gimenez now part of a back line that is capable of shutting out any opponents.

Add this to the fact that Arsenal have been very weak away from home this term and have a suspect character and it all amounts to a straightforward win for Atletico.
