Real – Atletico La Liga Predictions
Real Madrid to Win @ 1.83 (5/6)
Real Madrid cemented their status as the best team in the world by winning the FIFA Club World Cup. They do not look like slowing down anytime soon and look set for another victory in the derby. Real Madrid has won their last five games in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of those games with a total of 20 goals. The Whites are a very formidable team at home, with seven wins in ten home games at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Atletico Madrid has another tough trip to the home of the Spanish champions this weekend. Diego Simeone’s side has won three of their last five games, but they have not been as prolific as Real Madrid. Atletico Madrid is winning games by a very thin margin, and they have scored one goal in each of their last five games. This sort of performance would guarantee them a loss against Real Madrid, and Los Blancos should be getting their 17th league win of the season.
Karim Benzema to Score Anytime @ 1.91 (10/11)
Karim Benzema marked his return from injury with two goals against Liverpool in the Champions League. He has scored a brace in his last two games and was on the score sheet for Real Madrid in the Madrid derby last month. Karim Benzema is expected to lead the line against Atletico Madrid, and he has a good record in the derby when Madrid plays at home. Backing the number 9 to score anytime is a valuable goalscorer bet in this game.
Sending Off – Yes @ 4.00 (3/1)
These two teams have had bad blood, especially in the last few games. The rivalry has heated up recently, and in the last two games this season, a player has been sent off. Stefan Savic was the victim last time, while Mario Hermoso was sent off in the first meeting earlier this season. Here, the odds for a red card are worth the longshot betting on high-odds football bookmakers.
