The Spanish champions Real Madrid will travel to Wanda Metropolitano on Monday to take on city rivals Atletico Madrid in the 229th Madrid derby. They will come into this game with the aim to collect maximum points and dent Atletico Madrid’s chances of a top-four finish in the La Liga.
La Liga champions Real Madrid will be looking to dent Atletico Madrid's top-four hopes when they travel to the Wanda Metropolitano for the 229th Madrid derby on Sunday evening.
While spirits in the Los Blancos camp are high after beating Manchester City in midweek to reach the Champions League final, Atletico head into this contest after failing to win or score in their last two league games.
Los Blancos will head into this fixture high on confidence, having hammered Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League semi-final to qualify for the summit clash. Meanwhile, Real’s rivals will come into this game after failing to win their last two domestic games on a trot.
Real Madrid will try to continue its dominance of its bitter rival on Sunday when it visits Wanda Metropolitano Stadium to face Atletico Madrid in a Spanish La Liga match. Real Madrid (25-6-3) has not lost a league matchup to Atletico since 2016, and while it has already sealed the league title, it is unlikely to rest many players for El Derbi Madrileño. Los Blancos pulled off a stunning Champions League victory against Manchester City on Wednesday, and they will look to spoil their rival's season before resting up for the May 28 final against Liverpool. Atletico (18-7-9) will be going all-out for points as it tries to hold on to its fourth-place spot and earn a trip to next season's Champions League. It is three points up on fifth-place Real Betis but faces a daunting remaining schedule and needs to get a result Sunday.
Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET. Caesars Sportsbook lists Atletico as the +109 favorite (risk $100 to win $109) on the 90-minute money line in its latest Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid odds, with Real the +250 underdog. A draw is priced at +250 and the over-under for total goals scored is set at 2.5. Before locking in Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid picks, you need to see what soccer insider Martin Green has to say.

Now, Green has broken down Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid from all sides and just locked in his picks and La Liga predictions. You can head to SportsLine now to see his picks. Here are the betting lines and trends for Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid:
This time last year, Atletico Madrid were sitting two points clear of both Barcelona and Real Madrid at the top of the table before going on to pick up a point against the former and win their remaining three fixtures to seal the La Liga title.
However, Diego Simeone's men are now sitting 20 points behind newly-crowned champions Los Blancos and still have work to do if they are to qualify for the Champions League.
Los Colchoneros have dropped eight points in their last four matches and have lost their last two games away from home, including the 2-0 defeat at Athletic Bilbao last weekend.
Atletico currently sit fourth in the table, three points clear of fifth-placed Real Betis, but with challenging fixtures against Real Madrid, Sevilla and Real Sociedad still to come, Simeone's side will need to be on top of their game if they are to remain in the top four.
Heading into Sunday's derby, Atletico have failed to win any of their last 12 domestic meetings against Real, dating back to February 2016 when they won 1-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid enjoyed another memorable European night on Wednesday as they produced a historic comeback win to beat Man City 6-5 on aggregate and progress to the Champions League final.
Los Blancos were a goal behind and 5-3 down on aggregate heading into stoppage time in the second leg, but a dramatic brace from substitute Rodrygo forced the tie into extra time, before Karim Benzema converted from the penalty spot to set up a showpiece event with Liverpool in Paris on May 28.
Just four days earlier, Carlo Ancelotti and co wrapped up the La Liga title with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Espanyol. The Italian boss has now become the first manager to win the domestic title in each of Europe's so-called top-five leagues (La Liga, Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga and Ligue 1).
Real are essentially playing for pride in their final four league fixtures, but they are sure to be fired up for Sunday's Madrid derby as they bid to get one over their rivals and dent their top-four hopes.
Los Blancos, who claimed a 2-0 home win over Atletico in the reverse fixture, have the best away record in the division so far this season, winning 13 and drawing two of their 17 matches on the road. They are also undefeated in their previous four meetings at the Wanda Metropolitano, claiming three draws and one victory.
Atletico Madrid pair Joao Felix and Thomas Lemar both remain sidelined with hamstring injuries, but the former has stepped up his recovery and is hoping to return to first-team action in two weeks' time.
Defensive duo Mario Hermoso and Reinildo will both serve one-match suspensions this weekend due to an accumulation of yellow cards, but Stefan Savic is available to return from his own one-game ban and is set to start at centre-back alongside Jose Gimenez and Felipe.
Geoffrey Kondogbia and Hector Herrera were both handed starts in centre-midfield last time out, but Koke and Rodrigo De Paul are expected to replace them this weekend.
Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez, Angel Correa, Matheus Cunha and Yannick Carrasco will all be battling to start in attack, with three of these forwards set to get the nod on Sunday.
As for Real Madrid, Eden Hazard continues to recover from a leg injury, while David Alaba (hamstring), Eder Militao (knock) and Gareth Bale (back) are all doubtful and will be assessed ahead of kickoff.
Casemiro started at centre-back in the win over Espanyol last weekend, and either the Brazilian or Jesus Vallejo could play alongside Nacho Fernandez at the heart of the defence if both Alaba and Militao are not deemed fit to start.
Ancelotti is unlikely to make too many changes in midfield and attack, but either Federico Valverde or Eduardo Camavinga could start in centre-midfield along with Toni Kroos and Luka Modric if Casemiro does drop back into defence.
After coming off the bench to net two crucial goals in midweek, in-form winger Rodrygo – who has scored six goals in his last six appearances – will be hoping to force his way into the first XI alongside Benzema and Vinicius Junior.
Atletico Madrid possible starting lineup:
Oblak; Savic, Gimenez, Felipe; Llorente, De Paul, Koke, Lodi; Carrasco, Suarez, Griezmann
Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Nacho, Mendy; Kroos, Casemiro, Modric; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius Jr
We say: Atletico Madrid 1-2 Real Madrid
While there is an element of pressure on both Madrid teams to win considering that bragging rights are on the line, there is more riding on this fixture for Atletico as defeat on Sunday could potentially see them slip out of the top four.
Real are on a real high after enjoying a historic week, and even if they opt to rest one or two star names, we expect the visitors to come out on top at the Wanda Metropolitano.
