The forwards have been their respective sides' main goal threats this season but do they provide the best value in the goalscorers market on Saturday?

Antoine Griezmann comes up against his compatriot Karim Benzema on Saturday afternoon as Atletico Madrid host Real Madrid.

The two Frenchmen have both netted ten times apiece in La Liga this term and each will be hoping to add to their tally this weekend in the second Madrid derby of the season in the league. 

Latest odds

Griezmann has netted 16 times in all competitions this season, including nine goals in his last 11 games, and is the shortest-priced player to score in the Spanish capital on Saturday afternoon. William Hill offer him at 11/8 (2.37).

The French international can also be backed at 4/1 (5.00) to open the scoring and 7/1 (8.00) to net a brace.

Benzema has 18 goals this term, including six in his last five appearances. The Real Madrid forward is priced at 17/10 (2.70) to score at anytime and 5/1 (6.00) to break the deadlock. 

Higher priced goalscorer options

Saul Niguez missed last weekend's defeat at Real Betis, but the Atletico Madrid midfielder looks like being able to feature on Saturday.

The Spain international has a habit of scoring in big matches and netted when these two met in the UEFA Super Cup at the start of the season.

On the other side, Real boast the top scoring defender in La Liga in Sergio Ramos who has scored five times.

Ramos has netted ten goals in all competitions in the current campaign including against Atletico in the UEFA Super Cup, and also is a man for the big occasions.

Tips and predictions

Niguez is priced at 5/1 (6.00) to score at anytime and in a game where clear-cut chances may be at a premium his talent for long-range shooting could be vital. Ramos is priced at 18/5 (4.60) with the 31-year-old also a threat from the penalty spot.
