Atletico Madrid vs Elche 22.08.2021

Champions Atletico Madrid got the defence of the title off to a flying start as they picked up 3 crucial points with a hard-fought 2-1 win at Celta Vigo on opening day. Argentine midfielder Angel Correa was the hero with a goal in either half enough to secure the victory. 

Visitors Elche flirted with relegation battle for most of last season before finishing in 17th, just two points off safety. They are tipped to still be in that dogfight yet again but they did well to pick up a point in their 0-0 draw with Bilbao in their opener.

Atletico have been a different animal at home in La Liga and we expect more of the same this season. We are backing them to not only get a good win here but they should keep a clean sheet while at it.
