La Liga: Atlético Madrid vs Real Madrid odds & preview

During the week both teams had their second match of the Champions League group stage – with a different ending. Atlético lost against Bayer Leverkusen due to two late goals by Robert Andrich and Moussa Diaby. Now they are tied for second place with three points.

Real Madrid managed to keep their flawless start into the new season intact with their 2:0 win against RB Leipzig. Federico Valverde and Marco Asensio scored the goals for Los Blancos. Until now they won eight games in a row. On Sunday they need to face their rival. Obviously, they are still the favorite for the Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid odds. Not sure who to bet on anyway? It might always be helpful to watch a couple of minutes of the match and go for some live betting!

Atlético Madrid Form-Check

After a very slow start to the new season, Atlético managed to get back on track in La Liga by gaining seven points in three matches. Currently, they are ranked at the 7th place but the match against Real Madrid could possibly be their hardest match yet.

Especially if they have to play without five players. Jan Oblak, Stefan Savic, Jose Gimenez, Thomas Lemar, and Sergio Reguilon are questionable for Sunday.

Atlético played without the aforementioned players on Tuesday against Bayer Leverkusen and it didn’t end well. Obviously, the football betting odds are more in favor for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid Form-Check

After their Champions League victory last season they managed to come back equally as strong. So far they are eight games into the new season and they won every single one of them. Even though they are still struggling with some injury problems.

Defensive Eder Militao is back in training and he might even be ready for the matchup against Atlético on Sunday. But even if not – Real Madrid has been playing very well, especially their defense was on point.

Carlos Ancelotti has quite some options with Antonio Rüdiger and Nacho Fernandez starting at center-back and David Alaba starting as a left-back. They played exactly like that against RB Leipzig in their latest win during the week. Ferland Mendy might be another option obviously!

Only one thing they still need to worry about. Karim Benzema is still out with an injury but they are still fairly successful on the offensive end as well. By the way: The French Man is one of the favorites to win the Golden Boot at the World Cup 2022 as well. The odds are pretty tempting currently!

Atlético vs Real Madrid Prediction

The Atlético vs Real Madrid odds is currently sitting at 3.10 for the win of Atlético and 2.30 for Real Madrid. You want to bet on a draw? You receive odds of 3.50 at the moment.

We tend to go for an under in this matchup. Atlético Madrid is in general not known as a team that’s playing attractive and offense-focused football – and we don’t expect them to switch it up the least single bit.

Even though Real Madrid is having a perfect start to the new season – they are still missing their number one goalscorer Benzema and this affects their scoring abilities dramatically. They managed to move around it very efficiently but it’s still a problem and they are definitely waiting for their potential Ballon D’Or winner to come back.

Our prediction: -2,5 goals with odds of 1.90
