Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid both have excellent UEFA Super Cup records and are also hard to split on last season’s La Liga form.
Both meetings ended in stalemate, with November’s goalless draw at Wanda Metropolitano followed by a 1-1 scoreline at the Bernabeu in April.
However, Los Blancos are beginning a new era and Los Colchoneros look in better shape right now, so 21/20 for the latter to lift the trophy is our first Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid prediction.
A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds
Real are seeking to pick up this piece of silverware for the fourth time in five years after completing a hat-trick of Champions League triumphs by beating Liverpool.
However, the Whites have had a turbulent summer, with head coach Zinedine Zidane and talismanic forward Cristiano Ronaldo both moving on.
Former Spain boss Julen Lopetegui has promised to meet the high expectations of “the best and the most demanding club in the world”.
Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois will be an improvement on Keylor Navas between the posts, but 18-year-old Brazilian winger Vinicius Junior is the only significant outfield signing so far.
Luka Modric has been named in the squad despite being linked with a switch to Italy and the feeling is that Real may be vulnerable at this point.
A Look At Atletico Madrid’s Betting Odds
Atletico enjoyed 2010 and 2012 triumphs in this contest, beating Inter Milan 2-0 and Chelsea 4-1, and return after crushing Marseille in the Europa League final.
Diego Simeone’s side finished three points above their city rivals in La Liga last season and have a settled squad.
Veteran front men Kevin Gameiro and Fernando Torres have been allowed to leave, but Monaco winger Thomas Lemar is a strong addition to the squad.
Diego Costa can continue to lead the line, while keeping hold of Antoine Griezmann was Atletico’s best business of the summer.
The 27-year-old was a target for Barcelona and Manchester United but committed his future to the club before helping France to win the World Cup.
Griezmann has a good record versus Real, scoring in three of the last five Madrid derbies.
REAL MADRID 3-1 Liverpool- Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale (2)
ATLETICO MADRID 2-2 Eibar- Fernando Torres (2)
Head-to-head: Real 1-1 Atletico, Atletico 0-0 Real, Atletico 2-1 Real, Real 3-0 Atletico, Real 1-1 Atletico, Atletico 0-3 Real
