Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid: Soccer Expert Picks for Madrid Derby

This is it! The first real test of the current La Liga season for Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid, two of the favorites to win the title. Real Madrid is the team with the best La Liga odds to dethrone Barcelona.

Regarding Sunday’s clash, undefeated Real Madrid is slightly favored, which makes sense considering the tournament’s top scorer plays for them. However, keep in mind that Real Madrid has only managed to win one of their last four visits to Wanda Metropolitano.

Atletico Madrid First Time as Underdogs

So far, Atletico Madrid has been the favorite in all its matches. However, Los Colchoneros failed to fulfill that role in their last two presentations. First, they lost 3-0 to Valencia in La Liga. Most recently, they drew 1-1 against Lazio in the UEFA Champions League.

The most interesting part about the draw in Rome was that Lazio evened the score thanks to its goalkeeper. That’s right, Ivan Provdel scored a beautiful header in the 95th minute.

I don’t expect that to happen on Sunday, but that doesn’t change the fact that Atletico Madrid’s defensive unit must play a lot better.

Offensively, Alvaro Morata is the main reason to consider wagering on Atletico. Real Madrid’s former striker has scored three goals coming off the bench. He’s expected to start on Sunday because Memphis Depay is injured. Morata scoring at any time is one of La Liga best props today, so make sure to place a bet on him.

Real Madrid Always Finds a Way

Midweek, Real Madrid played host to Union Berlin in its UEFA Champions League debut. Of course, Real Madrid was a heavy favorite in our soccer betting lines, but, aswe predicted, they ended up winning by only one goal. They won 1-0 with a goal scored by Jude Bellingham in the 94th minute.

So far, Real Madrid has won all their official matches, the last four by only one goal. Plus, they had to come from behind against Getafe and Real Sociedad. In other words, Carlo Ancelotti’s team is extremely resilient and always finds a way.

Individually, there’s no hotter player in all of Europe than Bellingham. No matter the price, you should always include him to find the back of the net in your soccer picks and parlays. He’s La Liga’s top scorer with five goals.

Atletico Madrid Couldn’t Defeat Real Madrid Last Season

Last season, thanks to the Copa del Rey, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid collided three times. In La Liga, Real Madrid won 2-1 at Wanda Metropolitano. The rematch at Santiago Bernabeu finished 1-1. The Copa del Rey match was also at Santiago Bernabeu, and the home side won 3-1 in overtime.

As you can see, you can expect a close match in which both will probably score.
