Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid Preview and Predictions

Real Madrid moved ahead of rivals Barcelona in the La Liga title race last weekend, after they benefited from La Blaugrana’s 2-0 defeat at Valencia. Zinedine Zidane’s side picked up a vital 1-0 victory away at Real Valladolid, and they now lead the Catalans by three points.

Atletico Madrid’s form has slipped in recent weeks, with no win in their last four games in all competitions, and just one goal scored.

Diego Simeone’s side have to get something from this game if they want to keep alive any fading title hopes in 2020, with a ten-point gap now opened up between them and Los Blancos.

Real Madrid have sensed an opportunity to move ahead in the title race, but Atletico have consistently proved to be a thorn in their side, with a draw priced at a profitable 3.5.

Do not expect this game to be full of goals, with only one of their last six La Liga meetings seeing more than 2.5 goals scored. With that in mind, an under 2.5 total goals scored bet comes in at 1.66.

Recommended Bets

A 1-1 draw at 6.5

Atletico Madrid cannot really afford to lose this game if they want to get back on track, and Real Madrid did look vulnerable during their Spanish Supercopa clash with their old rivals.

Sergio Ramos to score anytime at 4.8

The Real Madrid skipper will be confident of returning to the team, and his record against Atletico Madrid is strong, with three goals in his last nine games against them from defence.
