Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus Real Madrid Champions League
The all-time Blancos scorer had a week to remember in the Champions League and will look to carry that performance into this weekend’s Madrid derby

Sunday afternoon action in the Spanish Primera Division will see fierce rivals Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid lock horns at the iconic Santiago Bernabeu.

Los Blancos had a fruitful week in the Uefa Champions League as they overcame Juventus 3-0 at the Allianz Stadium to put themselves within reach of the semifinals.

Zinedine Zidane’s men trashed Las Palmas 3-0 at the Gran Canaria last time out and victory here at (1.75) according to NairaBet would seem them close the gap to Atleti to just one point.

Los Rojiblancos also had a solid Europa League outing, comfortably dispatching Sporting Lisbon 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Diego Simeone’s side will be looking to claim bragging rights in the derby and are (4.90) with the same betting firm to do that.

The reverse fixture at the Metropolitano ended all square with no goals scored. Another stalemate in the Spanish capital is available at odds of (4.00).

Real Madrid have failed to win their last four La Liga games (one draw, three losses) against Atletico at the Bernabeu. This doesn’t read well for the outgoing champions and it gives Atleti another shot at avoiding defeat at odds of (2.15).

Los Rojiblancos have conceded the second fewest shots on target in La Liga this season. This points to the fact that a few goals should be expected at the Bernabeu and an outcome of three or less is offered at (1.40).

Only twice in the last seven meetings have Atleti been able to keep Real at bay. This means both sides finding the back of the net will be a likely outcome at the price of (1.75).

However three of the last five clashes between these Madrid heavyweights in all competitions didn’t see both sides score. Punters who are convinced this will happen again can back NO at odds of (2.05).

Cristiano Ronaldo is the leading scorer in the Madrid derby with 21 goals in 30 games and fresh from his fantastic brace against Juve in midweek, the Portuguese maestro is Nairabet’s favourite at (1.75) to score anytime.
