Kick-off: 1515, 09/02/2019
Stadium: Wanda Metropolitano
Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid have been hard to split in La Liga matches over the past couple of seasons and another tight tussle is expected on Saturday.
The last four encounters between these teams in Spain’s top flight have all ended in stalemate, with just four goals scored in those games.
Everything points towards an even contest again at Wanda Metropolitano, so 23/10 for a draw is hard to resist for our first Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid prediction.
A Look At Atletico Madrid’s Betting Odds
Atletico’s hopes of challenging for the title suffered a setback when they were beaten 1-0 at Real Betis last Sunday, slipping six points behind leaders Barcelona as a result.
However, Los Colchoneros have established their new ground as a fortress this season, registering nine wins and two draws from 11 La Liga outings here.
Add on three straight Champions League victories at this venue and it is easy to see why clubs have quickly come to regard Wanda Metropolitano as a daunting place to visit.
Barca did leave with a point towards the end of November, though, with Ousmane Dembele’s last-gasp equaliser cancelling out Diego Costa’s 77th-minute strike.
Looking at the Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid odds, we reckon 15/4 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time again here is good value.
A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds
Real have come under scrutiny for lacking consistency in their maiden campaign following the double departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane, but things have been looking up of late.
Four straight wins in this competition have pushed the Whites to within two points of their neighbours in third.
Wednesday’s 1-1 draw at Barcelona in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final clash was another boost to morale.
Lucas Vazquez put Real in front after just six minutes, before Malcom rescued the hosts in the second half of what was a very even contest.
“Both sides created chances and we both enjoyed spells on top,” commented Keylor Navas on Real Madrid TV.
Karim Benzema set up his side’s goal at Camp Nou and also provided Gareth Bale with a late chance to grab a winner, but we’re hoping he is more selfish on Saturday.
The French forward had netted six times in four previous outings for the Whites and does not have a bad record in derby games.
Let’s finish off our Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid betting tips by taking 11/2 for Benzema to break the deadlock – if any goals are scored!
