Atletico have always been tough to beat under the management of Diego Simeone. Last season, the club conceded just 13 goals on the road. They scored 30 in the 19 away games. The club were able to keep scorer Antoine Griezmann, and this is of huge help to the club in the wake of the transfer ban. Girona averaged just over a goal per game in the 21 away games last season. The 17-18 campaign is likely to be even tougher due to the quality of the opposition. Our correct score prediction is back an Atletico 2-0 win at 11/2 with William Hill.

Our total goals prediction is to go with under 2.5 goals, which is offered odds of 4/5 with Bet365.
