Atletico have displayed signs of improvement in recent games but have just one win in their last three home games in the league. They might have home advantage, but that may not be enough against their in-form visitors.
Verdao have been a cut above their competitors this season, and given their record against Atletico, an easy win seems to be on the cards.
