Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Preview

Madrid vs Atletico Madrid

Competition – International Champions Cup

Stadium – MetLife Stadium

Date: 26th July 2019

Kick-off time – 12:30am (27th July) 

The Madrid Derby takes place outside La Liga for the 2nd consecutive season as both of these side look to get the early bragging rights over the other.

Atletico are on the verge of rebuilding their squad after losing the likes of Felipe Luis and even more importantly, Antoine Griezmann.

The French man and other stars who have left has helped accumulate some funds that they are looking to channel into rebuilding this team.

They have lost Jao Felix to injury but they still have the squad as well as the money to spend and they could still remain competitive even without signing new players.

They come here with the chance of winning this competition if they can win here before a potential final game against Juventus.

Real Madrid will be looking to show Atleti that they are the biggest team in the Spanish capital at the moment.

They have been mired by the Gareth Bale transfer as many people continue to wonder why they want to get rid of the Welsh star after all he has done for them.

Bale proved he can still be important in their game against Arsenal and the attention will be on him here again as other top teams look to scout him out as a potential signing.

This may not be a competitive game, however, pride is at stake here and we expect both sides to be at their competitive best.

Bookmakers have priced Real Madrid up as slight favourites to come out on top in this game however the odds are tight and Atletico are in a with a real shout according to oddsmakers.

Goal markets expect a lively game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale are both vying for favourtism in the first goalscorer market.

This game gets underway at 12:30am BST (27th July).
