The match is over.
An excellent chance for both Madrid sides to make a play for the top spots as the 2019/20 La Liga table is looking very open at the minute.
There have been some interesting results early on this season in La Liga. With Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico all struggling to dominate, this game takes on even greater importance. Diego Simeone will have his players trained to take all three points.
There is some exceptional talent on both these teams – and even though Atletico are famed for their solid defensive unit, this is a local derby and passions will be high. Expect a few goals at the Wanda Metropolitano – from both Madrid teams.
Atletico will be raring to go and Los Blancos have looked a little fragile at times this season – mostly against Paris Saint-Germain – even though they did get a good win at Sevilla on Sunday. But combining both the Atletico win and BTTS makes sense with the popular sportsbooks.
Head to Head
Atletico started last season off in the best possible way by beating Real in the European Super Cup – but was then unable to take the points in either of the league games. Real Madrid have not lost to their city neighbours in the league since 2017.
Atletico Madrid to win
Diego Simeone’s team likes to play their games very tight – and that has not changed since talismanic Diego Godin left for Inter in the summer. But a Madrid derby may be a little bit more expansive – and although they haven’t scored many goals so far this season, Atletico might just snatch all three points.
