Atlético VS Real Madrid

Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid play at Vicente Calderón in a very expected derby at the 22nd fixture of La Liga. 
"Los Colchoneros" have been a little irregular lately. In their last seven matches they only managed to win three times. At this moment, Diego Simeone's team is 3rd on La Liga with 47 points. 
"Los Merengues" arrive to this fixture with four consecutive wins. So, the team should be extra motivated. Real Madrid leads La Liga with 54 points so far.

In their head-to-head the home team has a recent advantage. In the last four clashes, Atlético has won three times.              

Analysis of Atlético Madrid

The main offensive weapons of Atletico are Griezmann, Fernando Torres and the ex-Bayern Munich Mandzukic. The croatian player is very complete as a striker: he holds the ball in tough situations, has good technique and is a great finisher.
In the middle, the spanish Koke is reponsible for setting the offensive pace. The portuguese Tiago and Saúl will be the partners of Koke in the Atletico's midfield to this match.
They have an excellent double of central defenders: Miranda and Godín are very familiar with each other and give a great sensation of security to the rest of the team when they have to defend. But the brasilian defender is injured and will be replaced by Giménez.

Confirmed Lineup: Moyà, D. Godín, Juanfran, João Miranda, Guilherme Siqueira, A. Turan, Koke, Gabi, Tiago, A. Griezmann, M. Mandžukić.
Coach: D. Simeone.

Analysis of Real Madrid

In Cristiano's team there is a good bunch of injured players. Luka Modric, Pepe and Coentrão are some of the players that still unavailable to the next match. 
Real Madrid should play in their usual 4-3-3 formation with Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema and Gareth Bale at the front. And with this front trio they have fine possibilities of scoring some goals. The "Ballon D'or" will return in this match after a two game suspension.         
Isco should replace Modric like is doing for some time. Toni Kroos and James Rodríguez might compose the rest of the midfield. The spanish is on great form lately and uses to contribute with excellent offensive movements.
Naturally, the away team should suffer to keep a clean sheet because they make defensive mistakes very often and that usually pay debts. 

Confirmed Lineup: Casillas, R. Varane, Carvajal, Nacho, Fábio Coentrão, Isco, S. Khedira, T. Kroos, Cristiano Ronaldo, K. Benzema, G. Bale.
Coach: Rafael Benítez.

Betting suggestion:

It's probable that both teams score in this match. Real is showing constant defensive problems and so they should be beaten once again by Atletico. But is also normal that Real Madrid strikes at Vicente Calderón thanks to his great attacking players.
