Real Madrid are not slowing down and the distance between them and their pursuers is increasing. The Merengues have passed with honours the last two weeks, in which they have had three very important matches (against Sevilla, Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad) and ended up winning all three games. Should they win this matchday against Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid would take a giant step forward in the league, perhaps decisively.
With five wins and two draws at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Madrid are the third best home team so far. They have won three home games in a row and the curious thing is that they have not scored more than two goals in the same game at home for five consecutive matches, which is rare for a team with such a high goalscoring instinct.
Real Madrid have now gone six official matches without defeat against Atletico Madrid in a row, with three wins and three draws.
After an inexplicable defeat at home to Mallorca, Atletico Madrid’s faith in winning the league this season is almost non-existent. Cholo Simeone’s team has ten points less than Real Madrid (although it must be said that they have played one game less than Real Madrid), so if they lose this game, the difference could be as much as 13 points.
To give you an idea of Atletico Madrid’s defensive weakness, last season they conceded 25 goals in 38 games, in 15 games so far this season, they have already conceded 16 goals. In other words, to match last year’s figures, they would have to concede just nine goals in the 23 games remaining this season, which is practically impossible.
The use of a defensive style of play (sometimes exaggerated) by Cholo Simeone, makes it difficult for his team to close games easily, as in many games when they are leading by the minimum they start to defend a lot, giving the ball to their opponents, which in turn increases the rival danger. Against an opponent like Real Madrid, with so much attacking potential, they can have a really bad time.
Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Predictions
Playing at home in front of their fans, in a game that could be decisive for them to win the league, we think that Real Madrid will go all out to win this game, as they are aware that Atletico Madrid is their biggest rival this season, an Atletico Madrid that is going through its worst moment. Therefore, we think it will be a very close game but Real Madrid will win by the minimum against Cholo Simeone’s team.
