Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Preview, Primera La Liga, Saturday 28th September 2013

Barcelona moved to the top of the Primera La Liga on sunday night after recording a convincing 4-0 win away against Rayo Vallecano with Lionel Messi taking an unusual back seat after fellow striker Pedro smashed in a hat-trick in that game and that result will now have everyone involved at the club extremely confident of being able to retain their La Liga Title this season.

Real Sociedad fought out a 0-0 draw at home against Malaga in their weekend fixture, that draw became their 3rd in five games played and showed that it is going to take a special team to beat them in their league matches this season and despite being huge under-dogs to win this game on tuesday night, they certainly have the fight and determination within their squad to make Barcelona work extremely hard to keep their 100% record in tact.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Team News

Real Madrid Team News:

Xabi Alonso is still unavailable as he continues to recover from a metatarsal fracture, but other than this the hosts have a full squad to choose their starting eleven from if both Gareth Bale and Marcelo pass a late fitness test. Expect coach Carlo Ancelotti to line up with a 4-2-3-1 formation with Benzema leading the attack up front.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored another brace in the midweek victory over Elche which has now taken his season tally to six goals from six games played.

Atletico Madrid Team News:

The visitors also have pretty much a full strength squad to choose their staring line up from with the only doubt being Adrian who has a fractured cheekbone but if given the green light could play with a face mask fitted. Coach Diego Simeone will likely go with a 4-2-3-1 formation with Diego Costa leading the attack up front.

Striker Diego Costa scored a brace in the midweek victory over Osasuna to take his tally to seven goals from six matches played this season.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Match Betting Odds Market.

Real Madrid are the clear odds on favourites to win this game at a current best price of 8/11 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers) available, which will probably see plenty of interest from punters as their record against Atletico Madrid is extremely impressive.

The Draw has only happened 9 times from the previous 40 meetings, but many would say that given the strength of both sides being very similar Draw number 10 could very well happen on saturday night and at a current best price of 11/4 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) this could be a sensible cover bet.

Atletico Madrid have started new La Liga Season in impressive fashion and along with Barcelona are the only other side to have won all of their league matches played so far and at a current best price of 9/2 with Betfred (£10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers) this does look value despite them not having a very good record in this fixture in the past.

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

This games on saturday night will go a long way to deciding which of these two sides will become the closest challengers to Barcelona in the fight for the Primera La Liga Title this season and is a game that both sides will be desperate to win.

Real Madrid have the all important home advantage and having scored an average of 3 goals per game played at the Bernabeu Stadium this season they do look the more likely winners, however Atletico Madrid have also been banging in the goals away from home this season and average 2.33 goals per game on the road and with the likes of Diego Costa who has scored 7 times for his club, they are certainly going to make it a very difficult night for all Real Madrid fans.

The goal statistics suggest a few goals to be scored in this one and with both sides having players in excellent goal scoring form at the moment I would expect this game to see at least 3 or more scored on saturday night, so betting markets like Both Teams to Score, Over 2.5 Goals and Anytime Goal Scorers should all provide some additional value.
