Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview

Atletico Madrid have won eight of their last nine home games, including the last four in a row to nil, along with a draw against Barcelona.

However, Diego Simeone’s side are six points off the Catalan club and they have only won three of their 11 away league games to date this campaign.

Real Madrid are now within just two points of their city rivals following four consecutive league victories and are six points clear of fourth-placed Sevilla.

Unsurprisingly, Atletico are favourites for this encounter at odds of 27/20 with a Madrid victory priced at 21/10 and the draw available at 23/10.

These fixtures tend to produce a lot of goals with just four going in across the four most recent meetings, so under 1.5 goals at 23/10 appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 3/4.

A ‘double chance’ on Madrid to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 11/20 while an Atleti win/draw outcome is at 4/11.

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: Alvaro Morata is back at the club where he spent his youth career on a loan deal from Chelsea. This will be his second game after last week’s start at Real Betis is at 47/20 to find the net in this game.

One to watch for Real Madrid: Vinicius Junior has already netted four goals this season and is likely to start as Gareth Bale and Marco Asensio are eased back from injury. The exciting forward is at 18/5 to find the net in this game.

Long shot: The league meetings earlier in the season ended 0-0, as did the only previous clash at the Wanda Metropolitano. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 8/1.
