It’s time for the first Madrid Derby of the season, as Real Madrid makes the short trip to the Metropolitano Stadium, to face Atletico Madrid in La Liga.
Atletico was unable to defend its title in the last season and has lacked consistency this season too. After a winning start, the club has dropped 4 points in its last 4 matches, losing all points against Villarreal, and sharing points with Real Sociedad. The Colchoneros have managed to get back to winning ways in their last domestic outing, beating Celta Vigo by 4-1. They did however face a setback in the mid-week clash against Leverkusen in the Champions League group stage. While it seemed that the game was headed for a goalless draw, the German club scored twice in the final 6 minutes of the game to clinch all the 3 points. Atletico is currently in 7th place in the points table, 2 points away from the top 4.
Real Madrid has maintained a perfect record this season, winning each of its 7 competitive games across the Champions League and La Liga. Last Sunday, it hosted Mallorca and came back from a 1-goal deficit to level the scores at half-time. Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, and Rudiger scored a goal each in the second half to guide Real to a convincing win. Real Madrid recorded a second consecutive win in the Champions League group stages on Wednesday, beating Leipzig. With 5 wins in 5 matches, Real is once again at the top of the table in La Liga. Carlo Ancelotti would like to open up some gap between himself and Barcelona before the league heads for an international break.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid La Liga 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the Metropolitano Stadium, Madrid, on 18th September 2022.
Atletico has a fully fit squad at its disposal, and Diego Simeone will be free to shuffle around his players at will.
On the other hand, Real Madrid may have to play without Eder Militao and Karim Benzema, although the latter has shown signs of a quick recovery, and may just be back on the bench.
Given the excellent form the visitors are in, we expect them to collect all the 3 points.
Bet on a Real Madrid win.
Atletico has scored in 4 of its 5 league matches so far, including each of the last 3. On the other hand, Real hasn’t managed to keep a clean sheet so far this season, conceding goals in each of its 5 games. We are therefore recommending a BTTS bet.
Each of the 5 top-flight matches for Real Madrid, and 4 of the 5 such games for Atletico has seen a score of at least 2 goals per match. 3 of the last 4 head-to-head games have also produced more than 1.5 goals, adding weight to our recommendation.
