Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Los Blancos are trying to make the most out of Barcelona’s troubles. And they seem to have found reasonable success on that front. This weekend though, they will be tested to their limits, as they are supposed to take a hike to the Wanda Metropolitano.
As of now, these two are in possession of the top two spots in the table, and as such, the victor of this tie will have a great chance to put some distance with the rest of the lot.
Considering that Zinedine Zidane’s men are on the road, they likely will have a mountain to climb and especially since Diego Simeone is at the other dugout.
For the 13-time European champions, their squad is slowly finding a rhythm. The last day, they had defeated Osasuna, who at that point was unbeaten in the competition. And to the joy of their fans, youngsters Vinicius Jr, and Rodrygo chipped in with goals. New arrival Luka Jovic too had found the back of the net, only to be ruled out by VAR.
The Colchoneros, meanwhile, have been going about with their usual brand of ultra-defensive gameplay. The team has so far scored just seven goals in total, but delightfully, Joao Felix has been providing fantastic support at the front to Diego Costa.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Prediction
With the home advantage and their sufficient experience in dealing with over-the-top attacks, Los Indios will be deemed to have the upper hand. Especially since Real Madrid is still a work in progress.
The likes of Eden Hazard is yet to get into a groove after his transfer, and after the departure of the ever-dependable Cristiano Ronaldo, the Royal Whites have struggled to make an impact against tough opponents.
Moreover, seven of the last eleven h2h wins went to the Rojiblancos, and so did four of the previous six wins at home for them. Importantly, even including the times of Cristiano, Zidane’s men had failed to find the back of the net in five of their former nine road trips against this opponent.
As such, count on a great performance by the hosts. Also, Real, as has been the case for quite a long time in h2h encounters, will find it hard to break down the opposing defense.
