Atletico Madrid (AM) v Real Madrid (RM)


We have a rematch of last year's CL finals where RM's Sergio Ramos found the "equalizer in the 90th minute" and went on winning the match by scoring another three goals in extra time. Jubilation for RM and one very sad day for AM, coach Simone and their fans, letting the prestigious title slip from the tip of their hands.


Losing a match/title in that manner can be very "psychological" for players/team and the effect can be very lingering and detrimental if not rectified. What I want to highlight is here the fact that AM has channelled that disappointment in the right way, and we can see this through their four 4 victories (3 at home and 1 away) over RM and 2 away draws since that loss (all within last 8 months). One should not question their motivation/determination whenever they face RM, in my eyes AM will be more inspired, having more mental confidence/belief than RM; and they should not be seen as the underdogs especially at home like odds suggest.

Remember, this is a tie over two legs, for RM and coach Ancelotti, they would 'approach' this game and aim to get an away draw, that would be the safe/intelligent tactic. Under no circumstances should RM come out firing and going for goals, after all they have yet to score any in the last 3 visits to Vicente Calderon. AM defence is very reliable, only conceded 25 goals in LaLiga behind Barcelona 19 and Valencia 23 goals.


Of course RM has C.Ronaldo, Bale along with other big names, it is easy and comfortable to assume that they should win easily and get the job done, and teams like RM "shouldn't choke". That would be a mistake to make IMO. RM has fallen from leading comfortably on LaLagi ladder, dropping crucial points to top 6 sides. What I'm seeing here is that RM crumbles at the big games, games that really tests the team limit, and RM seem to fall short. I still haven't forgotten that RM 3-4 loss at home to Schalke who was severely handicapped with few key injuries, RM barely hanging onto a 1-goal lead on aggregate in the last 10 minutes.

I'll be putting my money on an inspired Atletico Madrid and coach Simone who seem to have the tactics/system to beat Ancelotti and RM.

From what I have read - Atletico should win this one straight out.

These "ponce" teams seem to fall apart when faced against a team that is 200% out to beat them to a pulp!


Past results are a good indication...

Atletico won 4-0 at home last time...and 2-1 at Real Madrid's stadium before that...

Last night I backed Perugia, Liverpool, Valencia and Copenhagen to win...

All teams were winning (Copenhagen had won already) and William Hill offered £60 cash out! My stake was £30 and the full pay out was £128 if all selections won!

I mean -> the "CASH OUT" option
