A tantalizing city derby looms on Sunday, April 8, as La Liga round 31 highlight fixture. Will the home side Real Madrid be able to approach the runners-up spot by outplaying their city rivals Atleti?
One heck of a busy week is coming, as the two rivals will aim to maintain their domestic and European campaigns. La Liga round 31 highlight fixture will take place in mid of Real’s two legged UCL quarter-final and Atleti’s two legged Europa League quarter-final. Who will prevail under such extreme pressure?
According to online betting sites in Spain the two city rivals need badly to win the match, in order to save their reputation and to secure their spot in La Liga table. The loser will be on the verge of slipping down the line, and there’s no time for making mistakes as less than two months left before La Liga brings its curtain down.
Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid H2H stats
According to online sportsbook news in Spain Real Madrid could not capture victory against Atletico Madrid in their last two La Liga meetings in 2017. Los Blancos could not score at Wanda Metropolitano in this season’s first leg that ended in a goalless draw. Thus it was not a surprise as Diego Simeone’s men kept a clean sheet of zero losses at home against all rivals this season, unlike Real who encountered three defeats at the Bernabeu by Villarreal, Barcelona, and Real Betis so far.
The expected result of La Liga Round 31 Highlight Fixture
The two teams have met 43 times up to today, and the overall stats show that they have scored on average of 2.8 goals per match. But it seems that both teams have changed their mentality this season especially because they failed to bring out the best in themselves so far. In the first leg the two teams have pushed for an organized defense while failing to dominate the offense and to open the scoreline, leading to the goalless draw.
In their next meeting we do not expect a much different attitude as the two teams will be exhausted by their European campaigns. If you wish to place a bet check Bet365 Sportsbook. The odds are (1.85) for the home side Real Madrid, while they are (4.00) for the visitors. The most convenient result would be a draw with (3.60) odds. Since the two rivals will largely focus on the defensive side over the attack we recommend placing a bet on 2-3 goals to be scored in the 90 minutes with (2.00) odds.
