REAL MADRID v ATLETICO MADRID BETTING PREVIEW
Real Madrid enter this match on the back of a comfortable 2-4 victory over relegation-threatened Leganes in mid-week, courtesy of a hat-trick scored by Alvaro Morata. The Blancos, who have won five successive La Liga matches, are only ahead of Barcelona by two points though so every single match is crucial between now and the end of the campaign. At home, Los Blancos haven't lost in the league since February of last year, but that defeat came at the hands of their city rivals. Anyway, Real Madrid ended a bad run of league results against Atletico with a 3-0 win at the Vicente Calderon earlier in the season.
Zinedine Zidane made a smart move by giving rest to his key players last time out. Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale will be fresh coming into a front three, with Alvaro Morata dropping to the bench despite his stunning performance. Raphael Varane is their only definite injury absentee, meaning that Pepe and Sergio Ramos will start at the heart of the defense with Marcelo and Dani Carvajal on their flanks. The likes of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro are expected to start in the midfield trio.
Atletico Madrid comes from 5 straight wins in La Liga and have only conceded once in their last six matches in all competitions. They sit third in La Liga standings, 10 points behind Real Madrid and 8 shy of Barcelona. The Colchoneros have suffered just the one defeat in their last 15 league games now in the Spanish top flight and are unbeaten in 12 away matches, drawing 5 and winning 7. In terms of direct matches, Diego Simeone's men did roll out a 1-0 win in this corresponding fixture last season. They have won on their last three La Liga visits to Real Madrid.
Kevin Gameiro is an injury doubt for the visitors, with Fernando Torres likely to start up top. Stefan Savic should be preferred to Jose Maria Gimenez in central defence, while Saul Niguez is likely to partner Gabi in the middle of the park. The likes of Miguel Angel Moyà, Sime Vrsaljko, Tiago and Augusto Fernandez remain sidelined.
