Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Real Madrid have undergone a turbulent campaign so far but are unbeaten in 15 across all competitions – winning 10 in that time – with just one defeat in their last 21, at Real Mallorca.
Zinedine Zidane’s side sit level on points with league leaders Barcelona at the top of the table but are behind on goal difference, while they have drawn three of their last four matches.
Madrid breezed past Valencia to reach the showpiece while Atletico edged out Barcelona 3-2 in a pulsating semi-final on Thursday.
Diego Simeone’s side are in strong form – they have won five games in a row in all competitions and are just five points off the pace in La Liga.
Zidane’s men are unsurprisingly favourites for this encounter at odds of 6/5 with an Atleti victory priced at 23/10 and the draw available at 23/10.
Madrid have nine clean sheets in 15 and 11 in total all season, so under 1.5 goals at 12/5 appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 20/23.
A ‘double chance’ on Atleti to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 8/13 while a Madrid win/draw outcome is at 3/10.
If you fancy Real Madrid to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 13/5.
One to watch for Atletico Madrid: Angel Correa has a new lease of life at Atleti – he has re-entered the side and scored in each of his last three games, including the late winner of Barcelona on Thursday.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Luka Jovic has started just three La Liga games since his €60m arrival from Eintracht Frankfurt but is likely to lead the line here in Karim Benzema’s absence/
Long shot: Madrid have kept nine clean sheets in 15, while Atleti have conceded just seven in their last nine games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 8/1.
