It’s your run of the mill, top of the table clash in La Liga this Sunday, as neighbours Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid face each other in the upcoming fixture.

As it stands, Real are five points behind leaders Atletico and on par with Barcelona, so there is little to no doubt in anyone’s minds that this upcoming march could have large-scale consequences on the title race.

Despite Los Merengues hoping to come into this game with a smaller game, the team came out with a draw against Real Sociedad, which means that this weekend’s game holds even more weight, with the team undoubtedly treating it as a final. With a game such as this, the smart move would be to head on over to Meridianbet, to check out their super betting offers.

With odds such as 4.70 of a winning margin of 1 by 1 and 10 for 2 by 2, the stakes could not be higher.

In terms of defenders, not many changes will be expected for the upcoming game, with the return of Marcelo and Alvaro Odriozola. On the right, it seems that Zinedine Zidane trusts Lucas Vasquez even more, which means he will be the one to start, while Varane and Nacho Fernandez remains defence partners.

On the left, Mendy will definitely want to portray a performance similar to that against Atalanta and less like that against Real Sociedad.

With regards to midfielders, Carlos Casemiro will be chosen to start. The Brazilian has been finding chances to take shots on goal as of late, which is definitely something Zidane has been working on. Casemiro is now the second-highest goalscorer in the league for Real, and he will surely have opportunities in the upcoming game. In front of him will be the impressive partnership of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. Valverde has returned to the team and saw some minutes against Real Sociedad, but might not start the game.

Will Nacho be the first one to shoot the ball into the net? Odds are 40 that he and Marcelo will be the first goalscorer. Vitolo’s odds are 13 and Lemar are a whopping 18.

The front three is where things might get interesting. Zidane has faith in Asensio, but may finally decide to start the Spaniard from the bench and go with Rodrygo Goes on the right wing. On the left, Vinicius Junior should be returning to the line-up after being benched. Up front, will we see Karim Benzema return from injury? If not, expect Isco to be placed as a false-nine.

With odds of 2.75 with a final score of 1 for Atletico and 2.80 for Real Madrid, the pressure is on.
