The much-awaited Madrid Derby will take place this Sunday, as Real Madrid takes the short ride to the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, in the final month of the ongoing season of the La Liga.
Last year’s champions, Atletico have struggled to put up a similar performance this season, and have gradually slipped down on the points table. With 4 more games to play, Atletico is currently occupying the 4th spot, and is just 3 points ahead of Real Betis, and 4 points ahead of Real Sociedad. Having managed to win just 1 of its last 6 matches, any more slip-ups could not only dent the host’s Champions League dreams but can also put a European finish into jeopardy.
Atletico faced the Athletic Club last weekend and was beaten convincingly thanks to an own goal by Mario Hermoso, and a penalty strike by Inaki Williams.
On the other hand, Real Madrid will be high on confidence after scoring a memorable victory against Manchester City in the second leg of the Champions League semifinals. Starting the game with a 1-goal deficit, Real was trailing 5-3 right till the stoppage time. But a brace by Rodrygo ensured that the match spilled over into extra time. Karim Benzema converted a penalty in the 95th minute to set up a historic final against Liverpool later this month.
Before hosting the Citizens, Real Madrid had already wrapped up the La Liga title by beating Espanyol 4-0 and attaining an unassailable 15-point lead over Barcelona. With the upcoming domestic fixtures being just a formality, Real Madrid will be playing for pride, and to build up momentum as it heads to Paris to face Liverpool in the Finals.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, Madrid, on 8th May 2022.
As always, the Madrid Derby promises to be a close match, with both the clubs vying to earn the bragging rights. While Real Madrid has nothing to lose, this is a much more important game for the hosts, as they look to keep their toes on the 4th spot.
Carlo Ancelotti is likely to reward Rodrygo with a start after his stellar performance against Manchester City, and he will be playing alongside Vinicius Junior and Benzema. Eder Militao, Gareth Bale, David Alaba, and Eden Hazard are likely to miss this game due to injuries.
As for the hosts, Thomas Lemar and Joao Felix are likely to be missing from action, along with Reinaldo and Mario Hermoso, who will be serving suspensions. Stefan Savic is expected to start the game, along with Felipe and Gimenez.
We expect an extremely close contest, with neither team gaining the maximum points.
Bet on a draw.
Real Madrid has conceded at least once in each of its last 3 away matches, while Atletico has done so in 3 of its last 4 home games. We expect both the teams to net the ball at least once this weekend.
Each of the last 6 matches between both the teams across competitions has seen fewer than 2.5 goals scored in them. 3 of the last 4 matches for Atletico too have seen less than 2.5 goals scored, pointing to a similar outcome this Sunday.
