Real Madrid are unbeaten in 12 La Liga Derbi Madrileños. In fact, Atlético Madrid have only won two of the last 16 Madrid derbies in all competitions, both coming in Europe, including the 2018 UEFA Super Cup in Tallinn. Three of the four derbies at the Wanda Metropolitano have ended all square, the other a 3-1 Real victory in 2019.

Atlético Madrid vs Real Madrid betting tips: La Liga preview, predictions and odds

¡Hala Madrid! Champions of Spain.

But, it could also still be Hala Madrid, champions of Europe too.

On Wednesday night, los Blancos pulled off one of the greatest Champions League comebacks ever, even by their own lofty standards.

With 90 minutes played for the second leg, Real Madrid were 5-3 down to Manchester City who boasted a >99% chance of qualifying.

However, with Real’s first shot on target of the night, Rodrygo halved the aggregate deficit, tapping home Karim Benzema’s cross.

Then, a mere 88 seconds later, Dani Carvajal’s cross was flicked on by Marco Asensio and headed home by Rodrygo, thereby, astonishingly, forcing extra time.

Three minutes into the additional period, Real were awarded a penalty which, as calm as you like, Benzema slotted home.

Carlo Ancelotti’s team managed to see out the victory thereafter, meaning it’ll be they who take on Liverpool in the Champions League Final in Paris.

It’s been quite the week for Real Madrid who were crowned La Liga champions last weekend, hammering Espanyol 4-0 at the Bernabéu.

So, can they cap off an eventful nine days with a victory in el Derbi Madrileño?

Atlético Madrid meanwhile were La Liga champions themselves last season, at Real’s expense, but have put in a very underwhelming defence of their crown.

So much so that Diego Simeone’s side are far from guaranteed a Champions League place after losing 2-0 at San Mamés against Athletic Club last weekend.

This means los Colchoneros have failed to score in three of their last four matches, only beating Espanyol since 2 April.

With their final two matches of the campaign against Sevilla and Real Sociedad, Atleti, who are currently fourth, could easily still slip below that position.

This is always a fixture not to be missed, so who will claim capital city bragging rights at the Wanda Metropolitano?

Thomas Lemar and João Félix are both injured while, after an anonymous display in Bilbao, Luis Suárez is very unlikely to start again.

So, Ángel Correa is likely to return to the XI as Antoine Griezmann’s striker partner.

With Šime Vrsaljko and Daniel Wass available, either could return with Marcos Llorente thereby returning to midfield.

With the La Liga title in the bag, and a Champions League Final to come, it’ll be interesting to see how strong Carlo Ancelotti goes here.

Karim Benzema and Vinícius Júnior have scored 61 goals between them this season which is 46% of Real’s total this season (excluding Copa del Rey).

They and Wednesday night’s hero Rodrygo could form the front three, if Ancelotti goes strong.

Neither Gareth Bale nor Eden Hazard are very likely to feature.

In midfield, of course, Casemiro, Luka Modrić and Toni Kroos is the first-choice trio, but Federico Valverde or Eduardo Camavinga could get the nod.

With David Alaba a doubt, Nacho will continue as Éder Militão’s centre-back partner.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois made 154 appearance for Atlético and had his name engraved outside the Wanda Metropolitano when it opened.

However, having subsequently joined Real Madrid, this has been vandalised and he should expect a hostile reception.
