Real Madrid vs Atalanta: Prediction and Betting Tips

20:00, Mar 16 2021
Real Madrid vs Atalanta prediction for Tuesday’s round 16 of the UEFA Champions League at Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium in Madrid. Real Madrid, after a 1-0 first-leg win, host Atalanta with a difficult task. Follow on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Real Madrid must be careful

The 13 time UEFA Champions League winners have a one-goal advantage over the Italians from the 1st leg. Los Merengues are a step away from the quarter-finals but still have some work to do. They must not concede a goal as they haven’t in the last two matches.

Zinedine Zidane has to make sure that his team does not repeat the result of their first match in this season’s campaign when Real lost to Shakhtar at home 3-2. They are on an eight-match unbeaten run and have scored in all of those eight matches.

In the first leg match, and after Atalanta were a man down due to a red card, Real Madrid dominated the game with 68% possession and 817 passes. Although Los Merengues scored just one goal from 18 goal attempts, the one-goal advantage can be very significant.

Atalanta need to be at their best

It has been a great season for Atalanta so far. They are fourth in the Italian Serie A table and had some great results against the top teams. In the first leg, Coach Gasperini’s plans were spoiled as his player Freuler was dismissed by the red card in the 17th minute of the match.

In the group stages of the UCL this season, Atalanta won all of their away matches and that makes them a very dangerous opponent for Real Madrid. They even beat title holders Liverpool 2-0 in one of the biggest upsets of the group stages.

Coach Gasperini has only one choice going into the second leg of this tie and that is to attack and get an early goal and the lead, something they have done in all of their group stages away matches this season.

Key Stats

  • Real Madrid have scored in all of their last three home matches in the UCL
  • Real Madrid have won their last two home games in the UCL
  • Atalanta have three clean sheets in their three away games in the UCL
  • Atalanta have scored in all of their last three away matches in the UCL

Real Madrid vs Atalanta Prediction

Everything is possible in this tie despite the one-goal advantage that Real Madrid have from the first leg. Atalanta have proved they are a very tough team on the road and they can cause danger for Zidane’s team in this match.

We know Real Madrid are capable of scoring although they haven’t scored much goals lately but they scored in their last ten matches. Atalanta on the other hand have scored in nine of the last 11 matches.

After considering  their stats and the need to score in this game especially by Atalanta, we predict both teams to score in this match
