Todays football prediction for Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid
Atletico Madrid face Real Madrid in the 7th round of La Liga derby. The match will be played on Saturday, September 28 from 8pm UK at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
Atletico Madrid will once again be a major contender for the title along with Real Madrid and Barcelona. Diego Simeone’s players started the season with three consecutive championship wins, but then came a disappointing 2-0 loss to Real Sociedad and then recorded a home draw against Celta de Vigo. In the final round, however, The Mattress Makers returned to victory after a 2-0 success over Mallorca’s Iberostar Estadi after goals from Diego Costa and João Félix as Álvaro Morata entered the game in the 69th minute and was expelled in 77th minute. Atletico also played their first Champions League match to host Juventus with Cristiano Ronaldo but managed to make it 2-2 after falling behind by 0-2. In the Championship, Simeone’s team is now in second place with 13 points in 6 matches.
Real Madrid are in first place in La Liga’s provisional standings with 14 points after 6 games and have not yet lost. After a 3-1 win over Celta de Vigo, the situation for Los Blancos didn’t look all that pink after losing points against Real Valladolid 1-1 at home and 2-2 at Villarreal. However, the team of Zinédine Zidane went into a series of 3 consecutive wins – 3-2 over Levante, 1-0 at away Sevilla and Wednesday 2-0 against Osasuna with goals scored by Vinícius Júnior and Rodrygo as Zidane gave the field for showing their reserves in the match and they thanked him for winning.
Last season, Atletico Madrid lost their home side 3-1 to Real Madrid, but I guess we all remember what happened when those two teams faced off at the International Champions Cup at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, where Atletico downplayed their city rival won by 7:3 and at the break Simeone’s team led by 5:0. Real have certainly not forgotten this result and I think they will do everything they can to take revenge and retain their first place in the standings without losing to their direct competitor and I’ll bet on Draw or Real Madrid.
