Bet Of The Day August 14 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Atletico have won their last four season openers
  • Atletico are unbeaten in 11 season openers under Diego Simeone
  • Atletico won 13 of 17 home La Liga matches when pre-game favourites last season
  • Granada ranked 11th in the second division last season in away matches

We’re off to La Liga for today’s best bet as Atletico Madrid look to get their campaign off to a winning start when they play host to newly-promoted Granada.

After finishing third last season, Atletico will be looking to close the gap on rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona – and with the latter drawing their opening game, they have a good chance to gain a small early advantage here.

Atletico have never lost a league opener under manager Diego Simeone and have won their last four straight such matches.

Furthermore, when Atletico were pre-match favourites at home in La Liga last season, they lost just one game throughout the entire campaign, winning 13 and drawing three.

Great chance here for Atletico to prevail and also keep a clean sheet in the process.

Granada may have won promotion back to La Liga at the first time of asking, but their form on the road last year in the second tier wasn’t impressive at all.

Indeed, Granada have the 11th-best away record, which suggests they will struggle on the road against top flight opposition, especially the very elite against Atletico.

Confident Atletico bags all three points in the season opener for the fifth straight campaign and it’s likely they keep a clean sheet in the process.
