Atletico Madrid will unveil their new 68,000-seater £220million stadium for Saturday’s LaLiga clash and we’re not expecting Malaga to spoil the party.

The hosts won the last three head-to-head encounters at the Vicente Calderon and take on a visiting team which is struggling this term.

After keeping clean sheets in two tough away fixtures, 3/4 for Diego Simeone’s side to win to nil here is an easy pick for our Atletico Madrid vs Malaga betting predictions.

A Look At Atletico Madrid’s Betting Odds

Atletico Madrid have made a solid enough start to the new campaign, securing a win and two draws from three domestic fixtures and picking up a point at Roma in the Champions League.

“We are on the right path,” said Simeone after Tuesday’s trip to the Italian capital. “We are growing match by match.”

Atletico have Antoine Griezmann available after missing the last two league games through suspension and a run-out in Rome should stand him in good stead.

Influential midfielder Koke also looks in fine form and everything seems to be coming together for this fresh chapter in the club’s history.

We’re looking for a clinical display here and like 17/4 for a 2-0 triumph in our Atletico Madrid vs Malaga betting tips.

A Look At Malaga’s Betting Odds

Malaga will have been content with a mid-table finish last term, with Michel guiding them to six wins in the closing nine matches after taking charge in March.

However, the experienced coach was reportedly unhappy with the club’s summer transfer dealings as midfielders Ignacio Camacho and Fornals moved on and Everton swooped for promising young forward Sandro Ramirez.

Limited funds were spent on replacements and three straight defeats, with just one goal scored, have hardly helped to improve the manager’s mood.

The visitors have been 1-0 down at the break in the last couple of those losses and 39/20 for that to be the case again here catches the eye from the Atletico Madrid vs Malaga odds.
