Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tips and Predictions
So we’ll have a Madrid derby in the Spanish Super Cup being played in Saudi Arabia. Yes, if you didn’t already know, this match is being played in Saudi Arabia and the reason is obvious. Money. Both semi finals took place during the week, Real beating Valencia and Atletico beating Barcelona and the Spanish FA are so annoyed about these matches being played abroad that they’ve not paid the money to show the games. Indeed, in Europe only Portuguse and Polish broadcasters showed the semi finals. Hopefully it’ll be sorted before Sunday and it’ll be shown on more channels. Anyway, let’s get down to business, crunch the stats and look for value in the betting markets.
Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tips and Predictions: Real
Real’s form isn’t wonderful of late, which is kind of strange seeing as they’re unbeaten in their last 15 matches in all competitions. Over their last five though, they’ve only won two and have drawn the other three and they failed to score in two of them.
As this match is being played at a neutral venue we need to factor in home & away stats whereas usually people prefer to put more emphasis on home vs away stats. Over 2.5 goals has occurred in just 2/5 previous Real Madrid matches, but over their last 15, it has landed nine times. Those two goalless matches of late really had Los Blancos fans worrying, but they’ve since scored six goals over two matches and look to have put those results behind them.
Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tips and Predictions: Atletico
Atletico are in great form of late, winning 5/5 previous matches. Over a longer period though, they’ve won 8/15. Over 2.5 goals has landed in 3/5 previous matches but in just 5/15. Diego Simeone’s side don’t tend to score loads of goals but of late they’ve been putting teams to the sword and they’re hitting form at the perfect time for a good Champions League run and La Liga run in.
Over their five most recent meetings (competitive matches only) there have been four draws (in 90 minutes) and Real have won one. Over their 10 most recent, Real have won three, there have been six draws and Atletico have won one.

We should add that there have been seven meetings between these two in knockout competitions over recent years and Both Teams to Score has come in in four of the seven matches. Both teams are going to be fired up for this and we think backing Both Teams to Score at 1.80 is the way to go.
