Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Preview

Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Santiago Bernabéu

Date: 8th  April 2018

Kick-off time – 15:15 GMT

This promises to be one of the most interesting contests across Europe this weekend as these two sides will be playing for both local pride and for the second spot in the La Liga.

After their respective victories in Europe this past week, we don’t expect either manager to rest their players for this game making it an even more interesting contest.

Real Madrid do not have the best record in the head to head of this contest as they have avoided a defeat in just one of their last 4 home meetings with Atleti.

Los Blancos have lost 3 times at home in the league this season and they have collected less than 2.2 points per home game this season.

Atletico Madrid are having a fine season that has seen them lose just 3 La Liga games all season while Madrid have lost 5.

They also have a solid 60% win ratio away from the Wanda Metropolitana this season.

Atletico have the best defence in the division as they have conceded just 0.47 goals per game this season, which overall is 19 goals fewer than their host in this game.
