Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid: Tips and prediction – 07.01.2014

By on January 7, 2015
Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid will face each other today in the last 16 round of Copa del Rey. The first whistle of the match will be heard at 20:00 (UK Time) and this is the 4th meeting between these two sides this season.
 
Atletico Madrid are coming after two victories in a row, ending their bad run of games with three matches without a win. Simeone’s team does not have the same strenght as last season, but they are still a danger for Real Madrid, proof that they won the Super Cup and they also won the game in La Liga. Atletico lost only one home game in the last year, 0-1 with Villarreal few weeks ago.
 
Real Madrid showed us that they have some real problems against their local rivals. They won UCL against them, but even there they struggled. Real want the revenge after they lost the Super Cup against Atletico. The galactics are coming after a defeat, 1-2 at Mestalla with Valencia, ending their fabulous run with 22 wins in a row in all competitions. We expect Ancelotti to field the best line up.
 
Real Madrid ticked a draw and a defeat in their last two away gamesat Vicente Calderon. They will probably be happy with a draw, trying to qualify in the second leg.
 
Prediction: Under 3.5 goals @ 1.35
The odds are not so attractive for this bet, but we recommend it. We expect a tight game, altough Real Madrid have an impressive attack. Atletico are very well organized, having a strong defence.
The best odds for Atletico vs Real Madrid: 3.50 – 3.50 – 2.05
