Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Odds, Prediction and Live Score

My Team's Next MatchAtletico Madrid

Real Madrid won't have any complaints about their season, thus far. They are not a juggernaut, however they are in 1st place in La Liga, and will be getting back some key players as they enter this crucial stretch of the season. Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric are both in contention to play this weekend. Atletico are not quiite themselves at the moment. When they are on top form they are keeping clean sheets with regularity and they have failed to do so in 4 straight matches.

But the Madrid Derby is a unique animal. Simeone, who has a fantastic record against the Galacticos can take no joy from it as his side has been defeated by their local rivals in 2 Champions League finals. Now they meeting for the first time since the Champions League Final in May, where Atleti had to watch their bitter rivals celebrate triumph.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Prediction

Atletico Madrid do not lose at the Vicente Calderon. With revenge in mind, they will look to hand Real their first loss in over 7 months

BET ATLETICO MADRID @ +140 AT WILLIAM HILL. Having already defeated Bayern Munich at home this season and holding Barcelona at the Camp Nou, Atleti are still the big game hunters of Europe, and for them there is no bigger sport than Cristiano Ronaldo and co. I almost want to compare Diego Simeone to Captain Ahab and the Champions League losses to Real Madrid as his Moby Dick.

But this Saturday is not a final, though it is an important regular season game. I expect the home team to put in a tremendous work rate, close down Real's space and hit them on the counter. Atletico Madrid have scored 18 goals in their 5 home games. It will be tight, there will be many vicious tackles and I see Atleti scoring at some point and then defending with their lives.  

Madrid Derby Goal Trends

The last 5 games between these two sides have gone Under 2.5 goals

That can be attributed to the importance with which these teams treat this game. It always has the feel of a cup final and nobody gives anything away. It would not be shocking to see another game finish under the total, but in Real's 5 away games and Atleti's 5 home games this season there has been a combined 4.3 goals playing well over the 2.5 goals standard.
