Real Madrid can close to within one point of Atletico Madrid in the race to finish second in LaLiga by shading a narrow victory in Sunday’s derby at the Bernabeu.
Both teams enjoyed European wins this week, but the Whites look better placed to put more emphasis on this domestic dust-up.
Recent head-to-head encounters have generally been tight, so 27/10 for the hosts to prevail by a one-goal margin is the first of our Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid betting predictions.
A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds
Real have had a rocky campaign in Spain’s top flight, but last weekend’s 3-0 success at Las Palmas made it eight wins in nine LaLiga matches.
Beating Juventus by the same scoreline away from home in the Champions League showed how much confidence has returned to Zinedine Zidane’s team.
“Juventus enjoyed some good spells, in which they put us under the cosh, but we held firm,” said Zidane.
“The 3-0 away win might flatter us a bit, but the performance merited a result like that.”
Gareth Bale was kept on the bench in Turin, so he should be fresh and raring to go here.
The Wales winger has netted three times in his last two games for Real and hit a hat-trick for his national team in between.
A Look At Atletico Madrid’s Betting Odds
Atletico have two days less to prepare after goals from Koke and Antoine Griezmann gave them a 2-0 advantage over Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League.
Diego Simeone’s side underlined why they are the favourites to lift that trophy for the third time.
However, the manager said on the club website: “I think the tie isn’t settled. A tough match awaits in Lisbon and their fans are going to make themselves present.”
Los Colchoneros have now secured nine straight wins at their stunning new home, but have not been so impressive on the road.
A 1-0 loss at Barcelona all but ended their title hopes five weeks ago and Atletico then went down 2-1 at Villarreal before the international break.
We’re taking 7/1 for a 2-1 win by the Whites to finish off our Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid betting tips.
