Atlético de Madrid host Real Madrid this Sunday (4:15 pm) at the Wanda Metropolitano in what will undoubtedly be the most attractive match of matchday 26 in LaLiga Santander. The rojiblancos are leaders with 58 points and one game less than their neighbors, who are third with 53 points, tied, but with a worse goal difference than Barcelona. It will be the second time that the two greats of the capital meet this season, after the 2-0 favorable to Zidane’s in the first leg played in Valdebebas, with goals from Casemiro and Oblak (pp).
Despite the setbacks of the last month against Celta de Vigo (2-2) and Levante twice (2-2 and 0-2), the victories in Los Cármenes and La Cerámica against Granada and Villarreal reinforce the morale of the Atléticos before one of the decisive duels in the fight for LaLiga. On the other hand, Madrid comes after an undefeated month since their last defeat in the league, curiously also against Levante (1-2) on January 30. Since then, the whites have added four victories against Huesca, Getafe, Valencia and Valladolid, and a recent draw this past Monday against fifth-placed Real Sociedad.
After these data and the previous duels between both teams, Galizapuestas foresees a very close match and surely few goals. “We are looking for an Asian handicap in the first half -1.0. This means that, if we see a goal in the first 45 ‘, the bet is void and they return the amount played ”, explains the analyst of the digital platform Betsfy, who has studied the previous statistics in detail. “If we see +1.5 goals in the first half, we would lose it, but if we see less than one goal, we would win it,” he clarifies.
Both teams have shown a greater lack of goal than in past seasons, adopting much more defensive roles. “Also, if we review their last matches, in practically all of them this bet would come out as the winner. I doubt to see two goals in the first 45 minutes ”assures the analyst.
In turn, the game will be refereed by Hernández Hernández, who averages more than five cards per game. “In such a disputed match and with LaLiga at stake, it seems ideal for the yellow team. Therefore, in 888sport, we bet on +1 yellow for each team ”. Therefore, Galizapuestas advises betting on an Asian handicap -1.0 in the first half and more than 1 card for each team throughout the Madrid derby match.
