Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid betting tips and predictions ahead of this Champions League semi-final second leg, kicking off at 7.45pm on Wednesday, 10th May 2017.
Real Madrid have a huge lead after their first leg victory last weekend. Can they full up their 3-0 win by beating Atletico in their final visit to the Vicente Calderon? That would be a huge result for Zinedine Zidane’s side, as they look to retain the Champions League.
Winning back to back European Cups is a huge challenge, but Real Madrid look better prepared than any other side. They have a foot in next month’s final, and they’re widely expected to see off Atletico on Wednesday night. Given the form of Real, it’s hard to back against them blowing away their rivals once again.
Real have been impressive in the Champions League, with their win at Napoli a notable example. Despite leading 3-1 from the first leg, they played brilliantly on the counter to pick off the Italians 6-2 on aggregate. Zidane’s men have scored twice in 10 of their 11 European games, and we think they’ll have the chance to do that again. Atletico need to push forward in this game, despite being 20/1 outsiders with Bet365 to qualify. There should be plenty of opportunities for the visitors, so we’ve picked over 1.5 goals for the away side at 5/4 with Betfair as our first Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid prediction.
Secondly, we’re backing Atletico to score and Real Madrid to claim another win. Real kept their first Champions League clean sheet this term in the first leg, and that was against an out of sorts Atleti attack. We expect the hosts to find the target this week, but Real should claim an eighth win in 12 European matches. We’re backing the visitors to win and both teams to score at 15/4 with Bet Victor in our second Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid betting tip.
Real Madrid are missing Gareth Bale here, but their 4-0 weekend win over Granada came with a reserve squad. While the key men will return, one of those in form men could replace the Welshman. Atletico are missing Juanfran, Sime Vrsaljko and Jose Gimenez, their three main options at right back.
These two sides have now met three times this season, and Real have ran out 3-0 winners on two occasions.
Real Madrid should rack up a few goals here, and they’re big odds to win with both sides scoring. However, we’ve picked out an even bigger price for our final Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid betting tip. We’re backing a 2-1 for Real, seeing as all of their European ties have seen over 2.5 goals. That’s priced at 10/1 with Paddy Power.
