Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid meet in the final of the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday evening.

Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Team

Madrid remain without their first choice attacking trio with Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard all missing the trip to Saudi Arabia.

Atletico for their part are without forwards Thomas Lemar and Diego Costa. Centre-back Jose Maria Gimenez alos missed the victory against Barcelona but could return on Sunday. 

Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Preview

Both of the clubs from the Spanish capital have endured problems in front of goal this season, yet their respective semi-final performances saw little evidence of that.

Missing Karim Benzema, the only player even close to double figures for goals this season, Real Madrid struck three times against Valencia and could have scored more in a supreme performance.

Zidane's side will know however that in the clash with their cross-city rivals this weekend they are likely to be afforded less chances.

In La Liga this term both Madrid clubs have conceded just 12 goals in 19 matches, sharing the best defensive record in the division and this derby is often a tight affair.

Four of the last six meetings between Los Blancos and Los Rojiblancos have seen fewer than three goals and the temptation must be to back another low-scoring affair.

Tips and predictions

Under 2.5 goals is offered at 1.72 while both teams to score 'no' can be backed at 2.10 and both look like solid options for the game. 

Three of the last six Madrid derbies have ended goalless and the price of 9.50 for another 0-0 could be of interest for a value bet.
