Welcome to our Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid predictions, previews, head to head and team news. Did anyone take Atletico’s title challenge seriously last season? I got the impression that most of the hacks were waiting for them to crack and hand the title to Barcelona or Real. Didn’t happen. This is a new season and they had a poor draw away and then a home win. Real Madrid on the other hand have had an even worse start to the season, by their standards, losing one and winning one.

Recent Form

Real Madrid LWLDL
Real Madrid lost away to Real Sociedad, who were probably still smarting from losing out on Europa league football by goal difference last season. Real earlier opened the season with a win against Cordoba.

Atletico Madrid WDWDW
Unbeaten in their last 5 matches, Atletico will still be hurting from that draw at Rayo Vallecano on the opening day of the season. They have since won at home against Eibar.

Previous Meetings

This fixture has been played 24 times. As you would expect Real dominate the stats with 15 wins, 6 draws and Atletico won 3. However last season Atletico pulled of a surprise win, and they will be hoping for more of the same.
