Analysis and forecast for the match of the 35th round of the championship of Spain “Atletico” – “Real” (08.05.2022)
May 8 at the stadium “Wanda Metropolitano” Madrid derby – “Atletico” will take “Real”. The hosts are in fourth place in the La Liga standings and are motivated by the fact that Betis is on the tail. The gap from the competitor is only three points. The guests have become champions and the only thing they can worry about is the image and maintaining tone.
“St. Louis” – “Minnesota”, 4th match. Kirill Kaprizov will light all the money
The last point is the most important, because Carlo Ancelotti needs to prepare for the Champions League final, which is scheduled for May 28th. The opponents will be very strong English Liverpool. In order to beat the English, you will need luck and all the available reserves, especially the talent of Karim Benzema.
The Frenchman has been demonstrating an amazing level of play this season. It was thanks to the leadership qualities and the phenomenal skill of the striker that the “creamy” reached the final of the most prestigious European tournament, having defeated PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City in the previous stages.
In all these meetings, the striker’s goals became victorious. With his presence on the football field, Benzema literally prejudges the outcome of the meetings in favor of the Galacticos. This is also evidenced by statistics. For 30 meetings in the championship of Spain, he scored 26 goals and gave 11 assists. Crazy contribution!
Lokomotiv – Rubin. Leonid Slutsky will fail testing
However, inspired by the example of their leader, other Real Madrid players also add quality. An excellent example of this is the semi-final matches of the 1/2 finals of the Champions League, where Vinicius Junior and Rodrigo flashed their individual skills. It is also worth noting the efforts of Thibaut Courtois, who was recognized as the best player of the week.
It is very likely that Carlo Ancelotti will give the above-mentioned players a rest after the dramatic outcome of the return semi-final confrontation of the Champions League 1/2 finals with the “citizens”. However, the Italian specialist is unlikely to oppose the very experimental composition to the “mattress covers”.
Atlético need a victory in the upcoming match much more. That’s just believe in his success is much less. Over the past four rounds, the club has won only one victory – over Espanyol (2: 1). He also played a draw with Granada located in the relegation zone (0:0). He suffered defeats from Mallorca (0:1) and Athletic Bilbao (0:2).
What is most alarming is that the team scored only two goals during this period, and conceded four. But the statistics at a distance from the “mattress” is impressive: for 34 meetings in La Liga they scored 59 goals. The decline in performance is partly due to the injury of an important player – João Felix.
The high-speed striker was injured just in the meeting won against Espanyol and will not be able to take part in the confrontation with Real Madrid. The news is extremely negative for the fans of the red and white, because Luis Suarez lacks mobility due to age, and Antoine Griezmann is out of shape. There is practically no one to score.
Pittsburgh – Rangers, Game 3. Igor Shesterkin will confirm the title of the best
The wards of Diego Simeone faced an identical problem at the stage of the 1/4 finals of the Champions League, where they lost on aggregate to Manchester City (0:1). It is noteworthy that in the first match they did not inflict a single blow on the opponent’s goal. In the return confrontation summed up the implementation. As a result, they left the field without goals.
Taking into account the fact that in the last five face-to-face meetings, the “creamy” did not know defeat, we take X2 as a coefficient of 1.83. Plus, in the last five meetings in the championship of Spain, Carlo Ancelotti’s wards played strictly to win. We think we can safely bet that this time they will not lose.
Forecast and bets on the match Examples Atlético Madrid – Real Madrid on May 8, 2022
Atlético have performed poorly in the last four rounds of La Liga. The absence of João Felix and the exhaustion after the semi-finals against Man City make themselves felt. Real Madrid is inspired by reaching the Champions League final. Carlo Ancelotti will probably not release the entire main team to give rest to key players. But even so, his wards look preferable. This is a completely different level of football. It seems that the guests at least will not lose.
Bid: Real Madrid won’t lose at odds of 1.83.
