Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
The highlight of the weekend round of La Liga sees an early season Madrid derby as Atletico Madrid host their city rivals Real Madrid with both teams well matched.
Atletico Madrid made a fast start to La Liga with three successive victories but have been derailed in recent weeks with just four points from their last three – although they did win at Real Mallorca on Wednesday.
Real Madrid are one point better off following the first six rounds of actions and are still unbeaten in La Liga with four victories and two draws.
Their low point was a humiliating 3-0 loss at Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League but last Sunday’s 1-0 win at Sevilla was a convincing return to form, followed by a 2-0 midweek victory over Osasuna.
The hosts are favourites for this encounter at odds of 7/5 with a Real Madrid victory priced at 2/1 and the draw available at 12/5.
This fixture tends to produce few goals with two scoreless draws in the last five, so under 1.5 goals at 13/5 appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 5/6.
A ‘double chance’ on Atleti to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 2/5 while a Madrid win/draw outcome is at 4/7.
If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 3/1.
One to watch for Atletico Madrid: Record arrival Joao Felix was signed for €126m and scored his second league goal for Atleti last time out at Mallorca. Is 11/5 to score here.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Karim Benzema netted a highly credible 30 goals last campaign for Madrid and already has five from five in the league this time out. Is priced at 9/5 to find the net in this game.
Long shot: Madrid have kept successive clean sheets as have Atleti, while two of the last five meetings have ended 0-0. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 8/1.
