Sevilla v Atletico Madrid Odds: Radamel Falcao heads the first scorer betting

There is all to play for in Wednesday night's live Copa Del Rey semi-final as Atletico Madrid head to Sevilla with a slender 2-1 advantage going into the second leg (Sky Sports 2, 9pm). Atletico edged to victory in a home match that was full of drama, controversy and excitement a few weeks ago, and this week's match promises to produce more of the same.

Atletico maintained their stunning home record with victory in the first match and they are 19/10 to follow that up with a win in Sevilla on Wednesday. It is Sevilla who start 7/5 favourites in the latest match odds, while the draw can be backed at a tempting 23/10 with Paddy Power bookmakers.

The first match produced three red cards and three penalties and there are some tempting odds for yet more controversy this week. PaddyPower go 9/5 for a penalty to be awarded in this second leg fixture and Atletico's recent matches haven't been short of drama as their six matches since the first leg fixture have produced three red cards, one penalty and three goals scored in the 90th minute or later.

There looks the potential for another late strike this week and the last goal to be scored after the 73rd minute can be backed at 10/11 and one man in particular could be worth a look to grab a goal in Seville. Radamel Falcao continues to bang in the goals that ensure he is likely to be one of the most sought after strikers in world football this summer. Falcao has scored three goals in his last three outings, opening the scoring each time, to take his tally to 25 goals for the season and he is a best price 5/1 to score first and 8/1 to score two or more in the latest betting with paddypower.

Falcao's form ensures the 4/7 for both teams to score could attract odds on backers, particularly as Sevilla have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five. Atletico certainly look to have the quality to cause Sevilla problems as they are second in La Liga, 12 points behind Barcelona, after winning all 13 of their home games this term.

They maintained that record courtesy of a Falcao penalty in a 1-0 win over Espanyol on Sunday. They may have crashed out of the Europa League to Rubin Kazan recently but they have won each of their last three without conceding, while an eight-match winless run away from home was ended recently by two away wins on the trot.

In contrast, Sevilla have endured a disappointing season that sees them occupying a mid-table spot following a run of two wins in their last five. They have won their last four in a row at home though and they will be hoping Alvaro Negredo can hit his straps on Wednesday. Negredo has scored five in his last eight and is 5/1 to score first, although Atletico might just have enough quality to grab the draw they need to qualify for the Copa Del Rey final.
