Atalanta is in great form at the moment, sitting at the fourth position in Serie A and having made it to the finals of Coppa Italia after beating Napoli in the semis. Their last match was also a 4-2 victory against Napoli in which was their 23rd league match. So they are going into the Champions League with a winning mentality.
Real Madrid was having a slightly rough patch in between but have now picked pace and won all four of their fixtures so far this month, three of which have been clean sheets. However, as they are picking up form, they are also missing key players such as Carvajal and Ramos in defense, their star striker Karim Benzema, and Eden Hazard, all ailing from injuries.
Our Top Recommended Betting Predictions
Based on our observations, these are our picks for the top three betting selections for this Champions League matchup.
Final Result: Draw
While most people bet on either Atalanta or Real to win, the highest odds are on Draw. But we are not going with a bet just because of the odds. There’s a good chance that the match can end up in a draw, and we’ll tell you why.
Both Atalanta and Real Madrid can play excellent attacking football, but it’s their defense that will have a huge impact. Atalanta is experts at taking a tight defensive approach against strong teams, as evidenced by their league matches against Juventus and Inter, ending in 1-1. Real Madrid has also tightened their defenses and has kept clean sheets in all of their last three matches. Even with the absence of Ramos and Carvajal, they still have a solid line at the back. Atalanta can be dangerous with counter-attacks, so Real will also be cautious with their defense.
Given such conditions, it’s doubtful that we will see both teams trying to go all out on the attack, so a draw is quite likely. The odds make it even better to wager on a draw.
Total Goals Over/Under: Under 1.5 goals
We’ve already explained how both teams might play defensively, and in that case, we won’t see a lot of goals. Still, under 1.5 goals may seem a bit of a stretch for some bettors. But considering that Real is missing Benzema and Hazard, it’s very much possible for the match to end on 0-0 or 1-0 for either team. Paddy Power has excellent odds for this bet.
Vinicius to Score Anytime
With their main striker injured, Vinicius has a high chance of being in the lineup for Real. The lad has not been very consistent with his performance but definitely has talents that we have seen on the ground. Eager to carve a permanent spot in the lineup, we are expecting him to grab this chance to prove his worth, so a goal from Vinicius in the match is worth betting on.
