LaLiga dresses up for the sixth matchday, as there is a Madrid derby between Atlético de Madrid and Real Madrid, a duel that promises sparks with two teams that historically don’t like each other.
The ‘Colchoneros’ come from losing 3-0 against Valencia, with an unrecognizable role for Diego ‘El Cholo’ Simeone’s team.
The ‘Merengues’ won 2-1 over Real Sociedad at home, thanks to goals by Federico Valverde and Joselu, and are leaders with a perfect score.
Sunday, September 24 at 3:00 pm ET in the Wanda Metropolitano
Atlético de Madrid +163
Real Madrid +160
Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Atlético de Madrid?
Atlético de Madrid started the LaLiga season in great form, including a 7-0 thrashing at Rayo Vallecano, making it one of the top-scoring teams with 10 goals so far.
But in the last matchday the ‘Colchoneros’ suffered a 3-0 slap in the face at Valencia, showing a very weak defense, allowing up to eight rival shots. In addition, in the Champions League, they experienced an improbable moment, as they suffered a 1-1 draw against Lazio with a goal scored by goalkeeper Ivan Provedel in the last minute of added time.
Moreover, Atletico’s hopes depend on striker Alvaro Morata getting back on track, as he has three goals to his name. However, Simeone’s team lost a key player to injury, midfielder Thomas Lemar.
Other injured players are Memphis Depay and Koke, while midfielder Rodrigo De Paul, who has two assists, may not make it due to physical discomfort.
Why Bet on Real Madrid?
Real Madrid have won everything they have played. Five matches, 15 points and so far they have the top scorer of the tournament, the English midfielder Jude Bellingham, who has five goals.
The ‘Casa Blanca’ is coming from a 2-1 victory over Real Sociedad, thanks to goals from Federico Valverde and Joselu. Also, this Wednesday they won an incredible match against Union Berlin in the Champions League with a last-minute goal from Bellingham. The team coached by Carlo Ancelotti has 10 goals in favor and only three against in the league, showing itself as an ideal team in both facets of the game.
In addition to Bellingham, Spanish striker Joselu has been the closest to the goal, scoring twice.
On the other hand, on the injured side, it is known that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and defender Eder Militao will not return any time soon. Vinícius Jr. will probably not be available for this match either.
