Bet of the day: Atletico to beat PSV by exactly one goal in Champions League clash
Robbie Purves | 23 November 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Atletico have won by exactly one goal five times so far this term in all competitions
- Simeone’s side have triumphed in all their Champions League encounters this season by one goal
- Atleti kept 24 clean sheets in La Liga last term, a league high
Atletico 13/5 to beat PSV by a single goal
After making yet another Champions League final, Atletico Madrid will be determined to go a step further and lift the famous trophy.
Simeone’s side currently sit top of Group D, three points ahead of Bayern Munich and have a history of pipping opponents to close wins this season – making Coral’s bet of the day even more enticing.
In fact, Atleti have won all their Champions League encounters this season by one goal and have triumphed by exactly one goal five times so far this term in all competitions. With this sort of precedent heading into a clash with reigning Eredivisie champions PSV Eindhoven, be sure to take odds of 13/5 on the Madrid outfit winning by one goal.
Simeone to sure up defence
Atleti have built a reputation on remaining tight at the back, finding the net, then shutting up shop. It was this strategy that saw them lift a La Liga title a few years back, and will hope to get back to this effective system against PSV after a loss to city rivals Real Madrid.
The Vicente Calderon club kept an incredible 24 clean sheets last term, a league high. This saw Atleti finish just three points of Catalan giants and title winners Barcelona.
