The Slivos are very good
Real don’t often succeed on all fronts, but this season, the ‘Creamers’ are doing very well. The club won their Champions League group by beating Inter 2-0 at home this week, and in the Primera, the team now leads by 8 points, although some chasers can reduce the gap through substitute games. If you take all tournaments, Real are on a streak of nine straight wins. Carlo Ancelotti has been able to use his players correctly and is now reaping the rewards. In the last round of the Primera Liga, the ‘Merengues’ defeated Real Sociedad away with a 2-0 win. The hero of the game was Luka Jovic, who scored a goal and an assist. Karim Benzema is unlikely to appear, as he picked up a thigh injury.
The Spurs are still capable of making progress.
Atletico have not had the brightest season, but the team can now get a bit of momentum as they beat Porto 3-1 away in the last round of the Champions League group stage, which still allowed them to take second place in the quartet and qualify for the play-offs. Diego Simeone’s side are only fourth in the Premiership, with their last meeting in the league disappointing, a 1-2 defeat at Mallorca. The gap to the leader is 10 points with a game to spare. A win in this derby would put them back in contention for the title.
The opponents have a great history of face-to-face encounters and rarely do their matches produce results. Last season, Real Madrid won 2-0 on home soil and drew 1-1 away.
Another serious and principled battle of the capital clubs, Real looks better, although in a derby the one who is in the best shape does not always win. Much will depend on the attitude of the opponents and the realization of chances. The teams are sure to play cautiously again, so we’re betting on a total of less than 2.5 goals.
