Reasons For Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid predictions & Betting Tips
Real Madrid are favourites for this match with odds of 2.30 with Unibet. Atletico Madrid are the outsiders at their new Wanda Metropolitano stadium with odds of 3.10 with bet365 to win the derby on Saturday.
This is a game that could go a long way towards deciding the title race. Barcelona could be 11 points ahead of both come kick-off time if they win away at Leganes, and defeat for either side would surely rule them out of contention.
Real Madrid have not made a good start to their title defence, dropping points to the likes of Levante, Real Betis and Girona and failing to convince in front of goal.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have just one league goal a piece so far, whereas Gareth Bale has been injured for most of the season.
Atletico on the other hand are unbeaten in La Liga, but have drawn 5 of their 11 matches and are struggling to convince in their new stadium. Their star attacker Antoine Griezmann is also out of form.
The last three matches at the Wanda Metropolitano have all ended in 1-1 draws, and we’re backing the same result here at 6.50 with bet365.
Last year, Madrid played away at Atletico at the same stage of the season just after the international break and won 3-0. However, we’re not convinced that they are as strong now as they were back then.
Cristiano Ronaldo silenced criticis in that match with a hat-trick, and we think he’ll bounce back and score the first goal here at 4.75 with Unibet.
Despite his poor league form, those are good odds for a player of his goalscoring pedigree. The run has to end at some point, and you know that on the big occasions, Ronaldo will make a mark more often than not.
Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Form
Neither of the Madrid sides have been in particularly good form so far this season. Both are level on 23 points in La Liga, but trail leaders Barcelona by 8. Atletico are almost out of the Champions League having yet to win a game in the competition that Real Madrid twice so cruelly denied them from winning in recent years.
Real Madrid Form
Madrid beat Atletico Madrid 3-0 just before the international break, but lost at newly promoted Girona the previous week and were also beaten 3-1 by Tottenham in the Champions League. Their attacking trio is particularly struggling for form.
Real Madrid Form: WLLWWD
Atletico Madrid Form
They may still be unbeaten in La Liga, but Atletico have not been convincing this season and as mentioned are on their way out of the Champions League. Their biggest problem is that they are struggling to score goals and are drawing too many matches.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Head To Head (H2H)
Real Madrid and Atletico have face each other 273 times down the years, with los Blancos winning on 143 of those occasions. Last season they were 3-0 winners at the red and whites’ old Vicente Calderon stadium and knocked their city rivals out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage.
Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid stats
Zidane still has a number of players injured. Gareth Bale and Mateo Kovacic are out, whereas goalkeeper Keylor Navas is doubtful. However, Isco and Dani Carvajal should be fit. Atletico are also expected to have Koke, Yannick Carrasco and Filipe Luis back from injury.
