Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid betting preview and tips
Real strong favourites to win the first leg of the 2014 Supercopa de España
August 11th, 2014
The start of the 2014/15 season is fast approaching and we have a repeat of May’s Champions League final with the two Madrid sides meeting to determine who will win the Spanish Super Cup.
The two teams meet at Santiago Bernabéu on Wednesday night in front of the Sky Sports cameras, with Carlo Ancelotti once again leading Real into battle this season as they hope to compete on a domestic and European front.
The marquee signing of the summer was James Rodriguez who arrived from Monaco for a hefty sum and it will be an opportunity for the fans to see the Colombian line up alongside Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Winner offer a best price 3/5 about Real claiming victory against the Spanish champions before next week’s second leg, although Diego Simeone’s side will be out to show they can once again compete for the title.
It was nothing short of miraculous the way that Atletico pipped the two giants of the country to claim the ultimate honour, although Diego Costa and Felipe Luis have left for Chelsea, while Thibaut Courtois has also returned to his parent club.
With Bale and Ronaldo looking to make a big impression, it would be an emphatic win for the home side who are no better than 1/3 to lift the trophy and we can see them taking an early lead on Wednesday night.
