Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid: Whites to claim derby delight
Odds: Atletico 11/5, Draw 11/5, Real 5/4
Kick Off: 1945, 18/11/2017
Stadium: Wanda Metropolitano
TV: Sky Sports
Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid have both been below par in LaLiga this season, but we reckon the Whites are better equipped to bounce back.
The capital city rivals are each eight points adrift of leaders Barcelona heading into Saturday’s crucial derby clash, with some patchy results produced so far.
However, Zinedine Zidane’s side have played the better football and appeal at 5/4 in our Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid betting predictions.
A Look At Atletico Madrid’s Betting Odds
Atletico Madrid are actually still unbeaten in this competition, but five draws in 11 games have hampered their hopes of getting in place to challenge Barca.
Diego Simeone’s side did manage to secure a win prior to the international break, but they had to rely on Thomas Partey’s dramatic stoppage-time winner to prevail 1-0 over struggling Deportivo.
Atletico have also been out of sorts in the Champions League, failing to win any of their first four fixtures, including losing 2-1 at home to Chelsea and drawing twice with rank outsiders Qarabag.
The dogged determination remains, highlighted by a 1-1 draw with Barca here, but there has been a lack of fluency up front.
With the hosts having gone nine games since last scoring more than a single goal, we like 31/4 for a 2-1 away win from the Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid odds.
A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds
Real Madrid looked to be reeling on the ropes when suffering a second LaLiga loss of the season at Girona and then being brushed aside 3-1 by Tottenham in Europe.
However, Zidane remained calm throughout that troubled week, insisting the Whites were still creating chances going forward, and he was rewarded with a 3-0 triumph at Las Palmas to steady the ship.
What was particularly pleasing about that performance was that it was young guns Casemiro, Marco Asensio and Isco who stepped up to the plate and scored goals, rather than relying on Cristiano Ronaldo to rescue them.
“It’s a good win that boosts our morale and restores confidence,” said skipper Sergio Ramos. “We’ve now got the derby, in which we’re keen to give the fans something to shout about.”
The Whites won 3-0 at the Vicente Calderon in LaLiga last term and should relish the spectacular surroundings of the new Wanda Metropolitano.
