Real Madrid Preview – Los Blancos to build on midweek reprieve?

As was the case in mid-October when they went to the Camp Nou for the first El Clasico of 2020/21 and left with three vital points, Real Madrid came up clutch when it truly mattered on Wednesday. Needing to beat Borussia Monchengladbach to progress in the Champions League, a brace from Karim Benzema ensured the 13-time European champions avoided the ignominy of a first-ever group stage elimination.

A huge weight will have been lifted from Zinedine Zidane’s shoulders. However, it only partially distracts from what has been a lacklustre season so far, plagued by too inconsistent displays. How can a team lose home and away to Shakhtar in Europe but produce the goods against Inter and Gladbach? Beat Barcelona and Sevilla on their travels in La Liga but lose in Madrid to Alaves and Cadiz?

Zidane will certainly be hoping his team can go to well one more time, though, for another hugely important fixture. Real Madrid (W6 D2 L3) last lost in La Liga to their fierce capital rivals more than four years ago and are currently undefeated in this fixture in eight. But they won just three, and prior to last season’s slender 1-0 victory at the Bernabeu were without a win on home turf in six league meetings versus Atletico.


Atletico Win To Nil



Atletico Madrid Preview – Simeone’s charges ready to defend summit?

With the momentum of Real Sociedad stalling of late, Atletico Madrid (W8 D2) have moved quickly to capitalise. As such, they go into the first Madrid derby of the season a point clear atop La Liga and six better off than Real Madrid who have played a game more and could be nine points cut adrift if Diego Simeone’s men can find a way of extending their excellent run of results in the league.

Victory at home to Real Valladolid last time out, scoring both goals in their 2-0 success in the second period, made it seven consecutive La Liga wins and only two goals conceded since opening their league account for 2020/21 with a 6-1 pummelling of Granada at the Wanda Metropolitano in late September. They’ve kept eight clean sheets so far, winning to nil on six occasions including the last four games.

Put simply, Atletico boast a quality that their upcoming opponent lacks: consistency in abundance, and in all facets of their game. They’ve also beaten Barcelona this season, so cannot be accused of benefiting from an easy schedule, and can take enormous confidence from Wednesday’s 2-0 win in Austria against a spirited Salzburg which confirmed their continued participation in the Champions League.

Real Madrid Vs Atletico Madrid Betting Advice

Diego Simeone has Atletico Madrid looking the real deal this season. It is early days, however, their return after ten games is frightening. Dropping four points thus far, Atletico achieved this whilst putting up superior numbers to anyone else in the league when it comes to goals per game in attack (2.5) as well as defence (a staggering 0.2). Simeone’s side rightly sit top of the table, while their games in hand provide the sort of wriggle that allows them to view this fixture as a free hit.


Real Madrid Vs Atletico Madrid – Key Facts:

  • In four home league games, Real Madrid have scored more than one goal once and kept a single clean sheet against teams that either finished no higher than 13th last term or were recently promoted.
  • Seven successive La Liga victories for Atletico Madrid coming into the weekend’s eagerly anticipated contest, with all but one accompanying a clean sheet.
  • Real Madrid winning 1-0 at home in last season’s corresponding league meeting brought Atletico Madrid‘s six-match unbeaten away run in this fixture to an end (W3 D3).


Whereas we have a good idea what to expect from the away side – stoic defending, plenty of industry without the ball and the ruthless ability to punish mistakes, as noted in last month’s 1-0 win over Barcelona – the same cannot be said for Real Madrid. The performance in midweek was outstanding but also a rarity. In La Liga, Real boast one win in four having lost two of their past three home games, to Alaves and Cadiz!
