Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid: H2H Prediction 

Real Madrid have conquered La Liga and their next outings will be irrelevant but it's about Real's bragging rights, which they will maintain. 

And they are set to play Madrid Derby and could be a banana skin in Atletico Madrid's Champions League qualification.  

While Atletico Madrid will be looking to secure the top-four spot as it will be a cut-throat match for the Simeone’s men. Atletico Madrid should recover from their previous defeat and return to a winning way as they will likely face a less competitive Real Madrid side. 

Prediction: Atletico Madrid 2-1 Real Madrid
