Atletico M vs Real M Preview and Stats
Atletico vs Real Madrid Odds
Real Madrid has often dominated their rivals, and once again, they are favorites to win according to the bookmakers, but the football betting odds are quite close due to Atletico Madrid’s home advantage. A win for Carlo Ancelotti’s team is valued at 2.50 (6/4), while the bookies are offering 2.80 (9/5) on a victory for Diego Simeone’s side. The last meeting ended in a draw, and the odds for another tie are pegged at 3.40 (12/5).
Atletico de Madrid
Atletico Madrid is currently seventh in the league, but they have played one game less due to the postponement of their match against Sevilla. The Colchoneros had a very terrible outing in their last game in the league as they lost 3-0 away to Valencia. They have picked up two wins from the other three matches and have not dropped points at home this season. Atletico Madrid would be searching for their first win this month, and a victory against Madrid would earn them points and bragging rights too.
Real Madrid CF
Real Madrid has won all their matches this season and come into the Madrid derby as league leaders alongside a win in their Champions League opener. The Meringues have five wins from five games in the league, and their last game in the league ended in a 2-1 win against Real Sociedad. Jude Bellingham has been the star of the show for Real Madrid as they bid to wrestle the title back from FC Barcelona. Real Madrid has coped well in the absence of Vinicius Jr, and they are in better form ahead of the showdown in Madrid.

Atletico M vs Real M Predictions
Real Madrid To Win Or Draw @ 1.50 (1/2)
Carlo Ancelotti’s men have not had it easy in any of their games this season, but they sure do know how to get the job done, and they would be very confident heading into this game. Real Madrid is unbeaten this season, and they have been in good form up front, but their defense gives them an added advantage. They lead FC Barcelona by two points, and they would be on their toes to avoid a defeat here.
Real Madrid has not lost in three games against their city rivals, and with a more solid team this season, they can extend that run to four games. Another key factor in this game is Atletico Madrid’s poor run of form after the international break. The hosts have one draw and one defeat in their last two games, and they aren’t playing well enough to beat Real Madrid.
Total Goals – Under 2.5 Goals @ 1.80 (4/5)
Real Madrid’s switch to a diamond formation has made them more compact, and they do not concede many goals again. The visitors have conceded the fewest goals in the league this season, letting only three goals happen in five appearances. The attack is also less fluid in the absence of Vinicius Jr., and they could find it hard to break down a defensive Atletico Madrid team. The hosts are expected to sit back and look for spaces on the counter, and we could have a very cagey affair in Madrid on Sunday. A bet on the Madrid derby to end with under 2.5 goals is a very valuable option in this week’s La Liga 23/24 predictions.
Jude Bellingham To Score Anytime @ 2.75 (7/4)
Jude Bellingham has been the primary source of goals for Real Madrid this season, and no player in Europe has scored more match-winning goals than the English midfielder this season. His 95th-minute strike handed Real Madrid all three points against Union Berlin, and he has netted five goals in five league games for Carlo Ancelotti’s team. Backing Real Madrid’s number 5 to score anytime is a good option in this game.
