REAL MADRID v ATLETICO MADRID BETTING PREVIEW
After their solid midweek performance at Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Real Madrid (16-3-6, 54 points) head into the game looking to return to winning ways following their 1-1 draw with Malaga last weekend that left them nine points off the lead. The team’s poor performances away from home at La Liga are certainly worrying Zinedine Zidane. Anyway, the Blancos have won their last seven league games at home, scoring an average of 5.28 goals per game.
Zidane's hopes have been dealt a blow by the absence of Marcelo due to a thigh strain while Karim Benzema should be fit to start, despite missing training during the week. James Rodriguez will continue to feature as Gareth Bale remain sidelined due to a severe calf injury with Pepe also suffering from a knock.
Atletico Madrid's 0-0 draw with Villarreal last week leaves them second in La Liga standings. In midweek, Diego Simeone's men have once again failed to get anything better than a goalless draw from their visit to the Philips Stadion for the first-leg of the Champions League round of 16 against PSV Eindhoven. The Colchoneros might have been struggling going forward - they have only netted one goal in their last three games - but they have an astonishing defensive record with just 11 goals in La Liga so far.
Jose Gimenez returns from a ban and should immediately replace the injured Stefan Savic while Thomas Partey is ready to make his return after resuming squad training on Thursday.
Diego Simeone will still not be able to rely on the services of Tiago and Yannick Carrasco, who remain sidelined due to long term injuries. As consequence, Fernando Torres and Antoine Girezmann are likely to lead the line in a 4-4-2 formation.
Atletico are undefeated in 10 of their last 11 matches against Real Madrid in all competitions. Away from home, the Colchoneros have suffered just three defeats in La Liga this season (W9 D1). The reverse match ended in a 1-1 result: Karim Benzema opened the scoring in the first 10 minutes, while Atleti forward Luciano Vietto scored in the final 10 minutes.
