Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid: It looks like Atletico Madrid are heading for Champions League heartbreak yet again this season, with their cross-city rivals Real Madrid being the usual villains in their continental season. The visiting Real Madrid have beaten Atletico Madrid in two of the last three Champions League finals, and after last week’s 3-0 loss at the Bernebeu, the signs for the hosts aren’t promising.

It was Cristiano Ronaldo terrorising the Atletico defence again last week as he netted yet another Champions League hat trick, and the lack of an away goal for Diego Simeone’s side could cost them dearly in the overall tie.
The hosts did follow this disappointment with a 1-0 win over Eibar to consolidate 2nd position in La Liga, but they are ten points adrift of Real Madrid in the table having won three, drawn one, and lost two of their last six outings in all competitions.
At home they have managed five wins from their last six matches and kept a clean sheet in four of them, and they haven’t lost a home Champions League match since September 2015. Since then they have won eight and drawn two of their ten games, keeping a clean sheet in a huge nine of them but only winning by three or more goals once.
Real Madrid kept their La Liga title hopes alive with a 4-0 battering of Granada on Saturday to make it seven wins from their last eight games. This keeps them level on points with Barcelona with just two games remaining, although they trail on head to head results.
Away from home Zinedine Zidane’s side are looking incredible though, winning nine games on the trot and scoring 31 goals in the process but only keeping one clean sheet. In the Champions League this season they have won three and drawn two of their trips away.
I’m expecting Atletico Madrid to go for it on Wednesday, and the fact they have won three and lost just one of their last six hostings of their great rivals indicates they do have a chance. Whether they can get the landslide victory they need is another matter entirely, but I think odds of 1.960 for an Atletico Madrid 0.0 Asian Handicap offer a lot of value. In the end I think Real Madrid will make it to the final though, so I’m backing a 2-1 correct score predictions at 9/1.
