Real Madrid – Atletico Madrid

7th April 2018   ·   0 Comments

Real Madrid looked decently well last time out in LaLiga, as the side overpowered Las Palmas away from home with a 0:3 result. It was fourth consecutive victory in LaLiga and even though their title chances are over, no doubt that the side wants to finish second in the end.

As usual in their matches, they were better from the start with Bale and Benzema bringing them to a double lead by the end of the first halftime. Bale scored his second in 51st minute which turned out to be the final result, as the visitors lowered down the tempo till the end leaving ball possession to the hosts who created couple of decent chances too.

They are now third with four points less than Atletico Madrid and have a perfect chance to narrow down the difference here. Since they have already won 3:0 on the road against Juventus in first leg of Champions League quarter-finals, the side doesn’t need to worry much about that and will surely try to rotated bit less.

Ronaldo and Benzema should lead their attack in a version of 4-4-2 formation. Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez could be used more here having busy schedule in mind. Central back Nacho (24/3) is injured. Doubtful is other central back, Raphael Varane (22/0) but should be ready in time.

Atletico Madrid, on the other side, comes from a narrow 1:0 victory at home over Deportivo La Coruna last weekend. Only goal came from a penalty kick taken by Gameiro in 34th minute in a game that wasn’t that interesting at all. Home side had the upper hand and looked slightly better, just enough in order to get deserved and narrow three pointer.

As the time progressed, they left the ball possession to the opponents, but players of Deportivo aren’t creative since long time ago and were unable to make really good chances. It was good to see Atletico winning after recent defeats on the road to Villarreal and Barcelone.

As for the Europa League they’ve won over Sporting 2:0 at home in the first leg on Thursday evening and can approach the second leg bit more relaxed.

Guests will play in 4-4-2 formation too, using Griezmann and Costa as strikers. Left back Filipe Luis (17/1) is injured. Doubtful with some problems are right back Sime Vrsaljko (16/0) and central back Jose Gimenez (20/1).

  • Real Madrid have been winning at both half time and full time in 5 of their last 7 matches (La Liga).

Both side shave their European duties but I’m quite confident they’ll step up into this match wanting a victory. Knowing their recent form and individual quality, I’ve got no doubts that Real is capable of maintaining the momentum and get all three points here.
