Atletico Madrid $12

Inside Sport - - PUNTER’S CHANCE -

Madrid’s “small­est” club has worked hard to close the gap be­tween it­self and its gi­ant neigh­bours, which has brought do­mes­tic suc­cess and Europa League tri­umphs since the turn of the decade, all thanks to club leg­end and man­ager Diego Sime­one. The Ar­gen­tine has cre­ated a rev­o­lu­tion in the red and white half of Madrid, which has seen him de­feat some of the con­ti­nent’s big­gest clubs over the past few sea­sons. Boast­ing the tough­est de­fence in Europe, Atletico will also be led by Euro 2016 player of the tour­na­ment An­toine Griez­mann (le“) and his new part­ner in crime, fel­low coun­try­man Kevin Gameiro. This cam­paign, the club just might have the right pieces to fi­nally win its first Euro­pean ti­tle.
