They meet tonight in La Liga, Sevilla travelling to the Spanish capital to take on Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Los Rojiblancos come into the game top of the pile, a point clear of second-placed Real Madrid with three games in hand.
Victory for Sevilla could see them go fourth, with two games in hand on Villarreal, who are currently in fourth, and three in hand on La Real, who are fifth.
Atletico took the lead inside 20 minutes, with Diego Simeone‘s decision to start Angel Correa over Joao Felix bearing fruit. Kieran Trippier, returning from his FA-imposed ban, passed to the Argentine, who turned smartly before unleashing a lethal finish.
Simeone’s side doubled their advantage in the second half, Trippier again involved. The English full-back played a ball over the top for Marcos Llorente, who squared for Saul Niguez. The Spaniard took the pass well before arrowing a finish past Bono.
