Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Odds
It’s been a pristine start to the season for defending European and Spanish champions Real Madrid, who have eight wins from eight matches to date, including a five-star showing in La Liga. The club’s immaculate record will be put to the test on Sunday night at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano against fierce rivals Atletico Madrid, who would love nothing more than to puncture Real’s early momentum.
Football fans in England can catch Sunday’s Spanish showdown live on ITV 4 at 8pm, while you can take a closer look at our two player-based bets for the clash below...
Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Tips
Vinicius Junior has exploded out of the blocks this term with four goals in five La Liga games, scoring in each of his last four appearances.
The Brazilian, who also scored against Celtic in the Champions League, now has nine goals to his name from his last 13 matches for Real - including the backend of last season - and looks primed to torment Atletico’s backline on Sunday.
With the added incentive of becoming the youngest Real Madrid player this century to score in five successive league games, Vinicius is our first pick at 23/10 in the anytime goalscorer market. At 11/2, he’s also worth a look as the first goalscorer given that he’s broken the deadlock in three of his last five games.
Álvaro Morata has given away 10 fouls in five league games for Atletico Madrid this season, the joint highest of any of his teammates; a pretty impressive feat in this side. He’s only been carded the once so far though, suggesting he’s been a tad fortunate to escape further caution.
The striker, who has received 70 yellows and four reds during his career, will now have his temperament tested in a high-pressure clash against his former employers. Recent history shows that this hotly-contested capital clash is a haven for card aficionados: 6, 5, 6, 4, 4, and 9 yellows - plus a red - have been dished out in the last six duels between the teams.
At 3/1 with UniBet, Morata looks a very decent price to be carded on Sunday, especially when he’s just 6/5 with many other firms. Alternatively, he’s 33/1 with bet365 to be shown his marching orders.
