Having lost the La Liga title to Real last season - finishing as runners-up - they have fortified their squad to increase their chances of nicking the diadem this time with the signing of Thomas Lemar, Gelson Martins, Santiago Arias and Nikola Kalinic among others.
Given that they have won five of their last six meetings with their hosts, coupled with their present form, they stand a better chance of securing yet another win at odds of (2.50) according to BetKing.
Both sides cancelling each other out is available at a juicy (3.15) with the same betting firm.
Although they enjoyed a good outing in their last pre-season game against Bayer Leverkusen, thrashing the Bundesliga side 3-0, they will have a huge task here to nick the maximum points and have been tagged as slight underdogs at odds of (3.00).
Atleti's solidity in defence can only be rivalled by a few in the Spanish top-flight and having conceded only once in their previous five meetings with Los Che, punters who are bold can back them to win to nil at a rewarding offer of (3.83) with BetKing.
