Our partners: Secure, respectable, and player-friendly – those are the three features that come to mind when talking about no deposit gambling site 777Spinslot.

Atletico Madrid are yet to win in Champions League Group C, with their chances of making it to the quarter-final stages looking incredibly slim. Even Qarabag came to their new Wanda Metropolitano and took a point back in late October.

Our Atletico Madrid vs Roma predictions are based off these lacking performances, which means that we are going to back another slip up for Los Colchoneros within our Champions League predictions.

Atleti are lacking creativity and an attacking spark, with Antoine Griezmann looking like the shadow of the player that he was last campaign. Roma have been far more accomplished both domestically and in Europe, with the Giallorossi needing a point to aid their push for first.

Atletico Madrid vs Roma Prediction and Betting Advice

Atletico have drawn three of their opening four group games in this year’s edition of the Champions League, although Chelsea came to the Wanda and recorded a late 2-1 win to ensure that Simeone’s men don’t have an unbeaten record to fall back upon. Los Colchoneros have been dreadful and deserve to be teetering on the edge of playing Europa League football.

10Bet offer the best value on a draw in this contest on Wednesday evening, and it looks incredibly good value given how the hosts have been performing this campaign both in Europe and domestically. They’ve drawn seven of their last nine across all competitions and there is no reason to believe that they won’t come out with the same result again this week.

These two teams drew 0-0 at Stadio Olimpico, but the away side have kicked on well since then. Since that result in mid-September, Roma have only lost one competitive game, winning eleven and drawing once. They’re in far better shape than their opposition.

Our Atletico Madrid vs Roma bets back this to be a hard-fought game, with Atleti known for keeping things tight. Given that they cannot rely on bags of creativity to win them games, instead, they have to try and scrape the odd goal here and there. In order for such a mentality to win them three points with regularity, they need to keep their goals conceding to an absolute minimum. There have been less than three goals in the hosts’ last nine consecutive competitive games, with only Chelsea scoring twice at the Wanda since its opening this season.

Simeone’s men have drawn their last four consecutive home matches, with the scoreline sitting at 1-1 three times and 0-0 once. Although it shows that Los Colchoneros are capable of defending fairly well and protecting Jan Oblak, it doesn’t say wonders about what they can offer offensively against an in-form team such as Roma. Sportingbet offer the best value on there being less than three goals on Wednesday.

Given the disparity between the two teams, our Atletico Madrid vs Roma betting tips find value in the fact that we suggest the hosts can take a point from this contest. Atleti are relatively tough to beat this season and this resolute approach should frustrate Roma a little. A low-scoring draw loos to be the way to go in this one.
