We are taking our attention to the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, because once again it’s time for the big derby of the Spanish capital. Atletico Madrid welcomes Real Madrid with both teams aiming to win and move closer to the leader Barcelona. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this clash.
Atletico Madrid are currently 2nd in the league standings. Cholo Simeone’s team have 44 points, being 6 points behind the leader and champion Barcelona. Atletico were enjoying a run of three consecutive wins in the league, but in the previous round they suffered a 0-1 defeat during the visit to Real Betis at the Estadio Benito Villamarin. Sergio Canales scored the only goal in the game from a penalty kick in the second half.
Atletico are aware that they must avoid making any mistake now, if they want to move closer to Barca. Especially taking into account that Barcelona are rarely making any mistakes lately.
As for Real Madrid, the current European champion is 3rd in the league with 42 points – just 2 less than Atletico. Los Blancos are finding consistency once again. They won their last four matches in the league. In the last round they celebrated a comfortable 3-0 win at home against Deportivo Alaves. The goals in Fernando Pacheco’s net were scored by Karim Benzema, Vinicius and Marcelo Diaz. It was a dominant performance by Real Madrid.
Probably Real Madrid will be a little bit more tired than Atletico on Saturday. That’s because on Wednesday they played against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey. The game at Camp Nou ended with a 1-1 draw. Lucas Vasquez opened for Real Madrid, but Barca equalised with goal from Malcom in the second half.
