Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid Preview, Primera La Liga, Sunday 2nd March 2014

Atletico Madrid’s form as of late has taken a huge knock which has no doubt damaged their confidence which has been so high in previous months. With two loses in their last five La Liga matches to take note of this fact has seriously damaged their chances of a title win. Both loses came to two sides in the bottom half of the table with the more recent to Osasuna who thrashed Atletico Madrid by three goals to nil.

Real Madrid however are in exceptional form and head into this game on the back of a 6 – 1 hammering of Bundesliga side Schalke 04 in the Champions League 1st leg away from home. Which has set the 2nd leg up to be another potential high scoring game in Spain. With Barcelona and Sundays opponents recently dropping points it have left Ancelotti’s side three points clear at the top and with a win on Sunday against 3rd placed Atletico Madrid it will no doubt allow the league leaders to extend their lead.

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

I cannot lie but this game on Sunday afternoon has me very excited as a neutral and a fan of Spanish football. You always look forward to the top teams clashing much like we do for the English Premiership. With the way Real Madrid have been playing as of late especially with the 6 – 1 demolition of Bundesliga side Schalke 04 you can help but wonder what the scoreline will be for this game.

Atletico Madrid’s form has taken some serious damage lately having lost to two terrible sides fighting in the bottom half of the division and it maybe shows that this side have started to crack to pressure with being title contenders for so long in this campaign. With Atletico Madrid and Barcelona recently dropping points we have seen Real Madrid slowly creep past and now take 1st position with three points advantage.

So lets get down to some predictions for Sundays game when these two title fighting giants come to clash. Real Madrid may well be away from home but if you check their head to head statistics you can see that their results away from home against Atletico Madrid are just slightly better than when playing them at home. So I am going for a Real Madrid win with both teams to score which is showing some generous odds right now. The other I am going for is Cristiano Ronaldo to score and for the game to end 2 – 1 in Real Madrid’s favour.
