Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid
It’s absolutely clear now – the Spanish Super Cup is going to Madrid. We can say this now because Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are the teams who will fight for the trophy on Sunday. Here are our free football betting tips for the weekend for this clash at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Despite of not having Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard on their disposal, Real Madrid did fine offensive work against Valencia on Wednesday, beating Los Che with 3-1. The manager Zinedine Zidane took an interesting tactical decision. He put Luka Jovic on the top of his attack, but he surrounded him with five midfielders – Isco, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Federico Valverde and Casemiro. It actually worked and all of the three goals were scored by midfield players – Kroos, Isco and Modric.
Zidane has some other options for the final on Sunday, of course. Against Valencia he picked Ferland Mendy and left Marcelo on the bench, but that’s a rotation he could make for the big game. Players like Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo are exciting option for the two wings, too.
In same time Atletico Madrid scored two late goals and eliminated Barcelona in the other 1/2-final, just one day later.
At some point of the game Barca had advantage, thanks to goals from Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann. Before this Koke have scored for Los Colchoneros.
The drama became real in the last 10 minutes when Alvaro Morata and Angel Correa sent Atletico to the final.
This is the first time Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are facing each other in a final game since the Champions League final in 2016. Maybe you remember what happened then in Milan – it came to penalties and Real Madrid won the trophy. Some things are different now, but the two managers are the same – Zinedine Zidane and Diego “Cholo” Simeone.
In our free football betting tips for the weekend we believe that Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will offer us an exciting final for the Spanish Super Cup. One of these two teams will celebrate in the airplane for Spain. But who?
