Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid – Betting Preview
Real Madrid Preview
Real Madrid has done well since losing to Barcelona in the Super Cup final. First, Real Madrid defeated Villarreal 3-2 on the road before defeating Athletic Bilbao 2-0 again while playing away from home.
Even though they only managed to keep one clean sheet, Carlo Ancelotti’s team has performed well in the capital, winning eight of their ten matches at the Bernabeu this year.
Indeed, both teams have scored in nine of their ten fixtures at home, as they have in 10 of their last 13 matches at all venues.
Atletico Madrid Preview
As evidenced by the fact that Atletico has only defeated its opponents from the Spanish capital once in their last 10 head-to-head encounters, it would therefore be somewhat of an upset if they were to win this one.
However, Diego Simeone’s team should be a challenge for Los Blancos given that they have scored in nine of their past ten away games.
Both sides have scored in five of those games, but they’ve won just seven and lost five of their previous 15 away games.
