Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid TV Coverage: TNT

Real Madrid is going to have a different look this season, as gone are head coach

Zinedine Zidane and superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. The new boss is Julen Lopetegui and he will be looking to start out with a big win over rival Atletico. On the other side, Atletico manager Diego Simeone will want to prove they are on the same level as Real this season.

Both teams have put a lot of emphasis on winning this match. Lopetegui wants to show everyone that he is the right man to lead Real, while Simeone needs to prove his team can beat Real.

Real will also be wanting to show that they have adjusted to life without Ronaldo. Real has some capable scorers like Gareth Bale, Isco, and Karim Benzema. It is never easy to score against Atletico, so Real will want to show they have the scorers to break down the Atletico defense. Atletico has two top scorers of their own in Antoine Griezmann and Diego Costa.

Player to Watch

The player to watch in this game has to be Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. He came over from Atletico to Real this season and Atletico fans are extremely upset. They have been calling Courtois a “rat” recently and fans vandalized his plaque outside the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday. Courtois played three years for Atletico and helped them win the La Liga title in 2013-2014.

Key Stats

These two rivals have a long history, but how much weight we should put in their history is debatable simply because Real has a new manager and a new look without Ronaldo. The teams played three times last season and it was Real winning two of the three with one draw. The teams have gone over the total three times and under three times in their last six meetings.

Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid Free Picks

This should be a fascinating contest between two fierce rivals. Atletico is thought to be improved this season and a contender in La Liga, while Real is without Ronaldo. How will Real do without their top scorer this season? Do they have enough other players to pick up the slack? The pressure is squarely on Lopetegui this season and he has put a big emphasis on winning this match even though it is not a league contest. I don’t know how much we should put into preseason form, but Atletico didn’t really look that good in the International Champions Cup and Simeone admitted they still have work to do. I lean a little bit to Real in this contest. I think taking the money line at -121 is the way to go, as it protects us in case the game ends in a draw.

Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid Pick:Real on the money line.

Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid Score Prediction:Real Madrid 2, Atletico Madrid 1
