Real Madrid vs Atalanta Betting Tips

Real Madrid are hosting Atalanta at Estadio Alfredo di Stefano in Madrid on Wednesday 17th March 2021 at 01:30 IST.

A slender lead is always tricky and an Italian turnaround or Spanish supremacy is well on the cards.

Real Madrid Form & Team News

Real Madrid qualified as the number one team from Group B with 10 points from six games. They won three games and lost two in the process. In the Round of 16 matches against Atalanta in the first leg, Real Madrid managed to nick out an away goal winning the match 1-0. This might prove to be a decisive advantage going into the second leg fixture at Madrid on Wednesday. In La Liga, they are placed in the second position with 57 points in 27 games. They have won seventeen while losing four games as well. They have been close to unstoppable in the last eight matches being unbeaten with six wins and a couple of draws to their name. Their last match against Elche saw them winning 2-1 at home. If Real Madrid can continue to dish out performances like in the recent past, they are well and truly in for a trophy haul this season with La Liga and Champions League title up for grabs. 

Alvaro Odriazola, Marcelo, Daniel Carvajal, and Mariano Diaz are the injured players in the Real Madrid squad. Zidane will be a considerably happy man given their long injury list is becoming shorter during the course of time and he can now play his core team to an extent. There is most likely no change expected from the squad that faced Elche. Karim Benzema is leading the charts in both the Champions League and the La Liga goal scoring records for Real Madrid this season. Casemiro and Kroos have looked the real deal leading their way with the highest assists this season. The return of Sergio Ramos to the eleven is a much-needed lift to the Real Madrid squad which lacked the depth when he was out injured. 

Atalanta Form & Team News

Atalanta qualified as the second-placed team from Group D in the league stages with eleven points from six games. They won three games out of those and lost just only a solitary game. They lost the first leg round of 16 clash at home against biggies Real Madrid conceding a goal which might prove an advantage for the Italian club. In Serie A, they are placed fourth in the points table with 52 points from 27 games. They have won as many as 15 games while netting in the second-highest number of goals by a team with 63 goals only just behind Inter with 65 goals. Their last match against Spezia at home saw Atalanta winning quite comfortably with a scoreline of 3-1. But their record of late has been inconsistent nonetheless with only three wins from the last five matches losing the rest of the matches.

Hans Hataboer is the injured player in the Atalanta squad. Gasperini might just opt to play in the same eleven that faced off against Spezia unless there are not any last-minute injury concerns. Duvan Zapata has been in stellar form this season in the champions league leading the way with three goals for Atalanta. Luis Muriel has also netted a couple of goals to his name in this season’s champions league so far. The absence of Hans Hataboer will be costly also since he is the highest in the assists chart with two assists to his name so far. Illicic is in good form after the two-goal heist against Spezia in the last match.

Real Madrid may as well win this game and qualify for the next round given their recent performances have all been quite extraordinary. They might continue their unbeaten streak after this game as well.
