Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid – Betting Preview
Real Madrid Preview
Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid’s Copa del Rey quarterfinal matchup will cause the Santiago Bernabeu stadium to vibrate.
Los Blancos demonstrated their worth in a 2-0 victory against Athletic Club at the weekend in La Liga, so they are full of confidence going into the Madrid derby on Thursday.
Eden Hazard, Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez, David Alaba, and Aurelien Tchouameni should still be in the recovery room, while Tony Kroos and Luka Modric should be brought up to the starting lineup.
Real Madrid have won eight of their ten home league games this season.
Atletico Madrid Preview
Contrarily, Diego Simeone’s team had no trouble defeating Real Valladolid 3-0, but they will have a difficult task in El Madrileno.
Since Atletico struggle on the travels, we are tempted to put our money on Carlo Ancelotti’s charges this time out. As for the away side, January signing Memphis Depay is pushing for a start, while both Reguilon and Savic are back from suspensions.
Atletico Madrid have failed to net in just one of their last 10 away fixtures, but Real are on a run of just one defeat in ten to their cross-city rivals!
