The champion will premiere his title in the classic

The "merengues" have just won their 35th league title and also qualified for a new UEFA Champions League final, and in the midst of a climate of total hubbub, they will have to visit Atlético Madrid on Sunday afternoon.

Against all sporting odds, the derby will be played in a completely different atmosphere than usual. It is that the "colchoneros" had the illusion of ruining the celebration for their eternal rivals, while Real Madrid wanted to consecrate themselves in the Wanda Metropolitano, the home of their eternal rival. But that will not happen because the championship was already defined days ago.

This is how Real Madrid arrives

Real Madrid has proven to exceed all Spanish League forecasts by becoming champion 4 dates earlier, after its 4 – 0 victory against Espanyol in the framework of the 34th date, at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.

To this we must add that, in addition, he has managed to reverse the series against Manchester City in the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League to get into a new final of his favorite competition. It is that after having lost 4-3 in the first leg, the "merengues" brought out all their experience and the famous mystique in this tournament and at home they won 3-1 to turn history around and keep the ticket to Paris, where he will face Liverpool.

In this way it is very clear that Real Madrid arrives at an unbeatable moment for Sunday's classic.

This is how Atlético Madrid arrives

The team technically led by Argentine Diego Simeone knows that they will need to win this match, or at least add a unit.

It is that although Atlético Madrid is always a tough team, but this season it has not lived up to sports forecasts, so today it runs the risk of being left out of the next Champions League.

Therefore, in addition to the pride that is always at stake in this kind of match, the victory will also be transcendental considering their presence in the next season at the continental level.

And that, without a doubt, will give a different framework to the match, or an extra motivation, taking into account that his eternal rival will arrive as champion in this match and that took away the emotion that all the soccer fans were wanting in the previous one.

Background between both

These two historic Spanish football teams have met 290 times in total, if the different competitions for which they have been measured throughout their respective histories are counted.

For the League of Spain they have starred in a total of 169 matches, of which 90 were in the hands of the "merengues" and just 39 were for the "colchoneros". In addition, 40 draws are recorded.

In the general history table, the difference is even greater: Real Madrid prevails with 150 wins over Atlético Madrid's 71, and there are 69 equalities.

The magnifying glass on…

Karim Benzema, the french striker who today is considered the best footballer in the world for his great present. With crucial goals, being the top scorer of the season in the Spanish League, he has shown that his finishing ability in front of goal remains intact. And to that is added his also excellent performance in the UEFA Champions League, with vital contributions to seal several classifications for the "whites".

It is for this reason that everyone will be aware of the presence of the "cat", which seems that nowadays it always ensures the occasional celebration, and also the occasional headache for the rival defenses.

The magnifying glass on…

Contrary to Spanish League forecasts, especially from analysts who specialize in this competition, Atlético Madrid has not used the Argentine Ángel Correa as the undisputed starter. Of course, every time the former San Lorenzo was on the court he showed all his potential, whether with goals, assists or dribbles, generating danger and making the public enjoy his game.

That is why the fans of the "mattress player" hope to see him on the pitch on Sunday, knowing that with his appearances he could change the course of the match, obviously, in his favor.

Sports bets

Those who are in the habit of placing their sports bets, and also those who are just starting out, know that they will have a good chance of making their moves.

Surprisingly, the houses that are dedicated to this point to Atlético Madrid as the favorite, since their victory would be at 2.15, while a Real Madrid victory would climb to 3.30. In turn, the tie is at 3.50, being the best paid result.

Everything indicates that the one that best arrives is Real Madrid, precisely, but beyond that previous favoritism, in sports betting one knows that it will not be easy at all to be able to guess what happens on the field of play.

To all this we must add the possibility of choosing by the result with which the first half will end, the exact score at the end of the game, which team will score first and other issues that will make it possible for one to choose different plays that give good returns in case of hit.

That is why those who usually play their chips regularly, on these occasions will have a difficult task because what one can analyze in the previous one, will be of little use once the ball starts to roll.
