Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tip and Prediction. In the second leg of Quarter-finals in the UEFA Champions League, in the big city derby, Real Madrid host Atletico Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu.
After goalless draw in the first leg, Real Madrid have no choice – they have to win this match in order to qualify in the Semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. Eventually, they could be in the game in extra-time if we see another match without goals. Interesting fact is that Real Madrid fail to beat city rivals in their last seven matches in all competitions.
Atletico Madrid have positive result before the second leg and their main goal is to score tonight and try to stay undefeated. They are undefeated in the last 10 matches in all competitions and in my opinion they have solid chances to qualify in the semi-finals.

Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tips and Predictions
Real Madrid will be under pressure to win this match and qualify in the next phase, especially if we have in mind that they will be without four very important players. Their supporters still can’t forget the loss in the 1/8 finals of this competition against Schalke 3-4. Atletico Madrid know how to play the matches like these and I will not be surprised if they qualify in the semi-finals. Real Madrid beat them last season in the final of this competition and this could be a perfect moment for revenge. Asian handicap +0 on away side looks like a good betting option. Small stake!
