Check out odds for Atletico – Real

Atletico Madrid entered the New Year in a very good style. At the inauguration, Simeone’s side beat Levante with a 3:1 score. Meanwhile, Los Blancos lost both games – last of the previous year and first of the current year. On December 30th, they were defeated by Milan and last Sunday Valencia shocked Ancelotti’s players with a surprising 2:1 win in a battle for league points. This way, 22-games winning streak of Real Madrid has been stopped.

Since Simeone took charge of Atletico Madrid, the team has been very tough opponent for every rival. It also applies to Real Madrid. Latest results between these two teams show exactly how it is difficult to beat Rojiblancos. Atletico are unbeaten in the regular time in last 5 meetings against Los Blancos. They recorded 2 wins and 3 draws (one in the Champion League final, which ended in an overtime loss).

Taking into account all aspects, Atletico win in the first game will be no surprise. Home field advantage, good disposition and little problems on the rival side suggest that Atletico might be favorite of this game. The pitch will verify it.

Bet365 offers following odds for this match: win of home team – 3.50, draw – 3.50, win of away team – 2.10.
