LaLiga: Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid

Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Betting Tip and Predictions. In the big city derby of Round 12 in LaLiga, Atletico Madrid host Real Madrid at Vicente Calderón. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid.


Atletico Madrid started good this season in LaLiga and after 11 rounds they are standing at the 4th position, with 8 points less than Real Madrid. Their main goal is to finish the season in the Top 3, and eventually get in the race for the title. They have played two times in the UEFA Champions League final, in the last three season, and both times they lost against city rivals. Home side want to try to attack the trophy in that European competition, but it doesn’t mean that the match against Real isn’t important for them. Atletico didn’t lose against their opponent in the last 6 league games and they will be fully motivated to beat them upfront their supporters. Home team is still unbeaten at Vicente Calderón this season in all competitions and they want another good result. Griezmann, Carrasco and Gameiro are doing great job in the attack and they scored all together 16 of 25 goals. Their defence is very good, one of the best in league, so their main goal will be to secure their net.

Real Madrid stand at the top of the table and they are one of the main candidates to win the title. Their manager Zinedine Zidane has already said before the start of the season that LaLiga is the priority for this season. Visitors won the title 5 years ago and they want to lift the trophy. They are doing the great job so far, but they didn’t have tough matches, so the match against Atletico Madrid will be real test for them. Real Madrid is still unbeaten this season in all competitions and their main goal is to stay at the top of the table after this game. They have the best attack in league (scored 31 goals), but it’s an interesting fact that their best player Cristiano Ronaldo scored only 5 goals. Despite that fact they are looking as a strong team, but they failed to beat Atletico away in the last 6 games in all competitions. Bad news for visitors are that two important defenders, Pepe and Sergio Ramos, are both injured. According to the latest information, the second one is doubtful, so there are some chances to start this game.

Team News

Home side mis Gaitan, while Griezmann is doubtful, so in the case that he can’t play Correa could replace him. On the other side, visitors will be without Morata, Casemiro, Pepe and T. Kroos, while Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos are both doubtful.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Predicted Lineups

Atletico Madrid: Oblak, Juanfran, Savic, Godin, Filipe Luis, Saul Niguez, Gabi, Koke, Carrasco, Gameiro, Griezmann.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Prediction

Home side will be fully motivated to make good result against angry opponent, but their city rivals have the same ambitions. It’s hard to predict matches like these, but I expect interesting game between Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid and believe that home side could take at least one point.
