Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid: Recent form, summary of last match, odds, upcoming fixtures

Real Madrid (last five La Liga matches: WWWDD) has the most difficult matchup in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16, taking on English champion Manchester City, managed by former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola.

While that may reduce its chances of winning a 14th European title, Barcelona’s mid-season coaching change and long-term injury of Luis Suarez has certainly made Real Madrid the favorite in La Liga. Zidane and Los Blancos need to take advantage of that and not return the three points in the title race the week after Barcelona handed them over.

Atletico Madrid (last five La Liga matches: DLWWW) got a tricky UCL draw against title-holder and Premier League leader Liverpool. Atleti’s first leg comes a week before Barca and Real play theirs, so a bad loss could ruin Diego Simeone’s dreams of contending for major honors this year with Spain’s top two.

But for now, Atletico would be fine with just a point to stay afloat in the race for the top four.


Real Madrid is favored in the derby at -127, with +265 for a tie. Atletico Madrid is at +360, according to DraftKings. 

Upcoming fixtures

Real Madrid, Wednesday, Feb. 5 vs. Real Sociedad (Copa del Rey); Sunday, Feb. 9 at Osasuna (La Liga)

Atletico Madrid, Saturday, Feb. 8 vs. Granada (La Liga)
