Local derby bragging rights are at stake along with cup ambitions in Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid on Thursday. The two sides from Spain’s capital clash in the quarterfinal of the Copa del Rey with the Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid odds favoring Real at -115.

Real sits in second place in La Liga – three points behind leaders Barcelona. So it has hopes of domestic success on two fronts this season ahead of Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid.

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid is in fourth place. But it is 13 points behind Barcelona.

So therefore, the cup is its only realistic hope of winning a trophy as it has also been eliminated from the Champions League.

Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Preview

Both these teams have endured defensive problems this season as they fail to match the levels set in La Liga by Barcelona.

So it could be an open and lively encounter at the Bernabeu Stadium on Thursday in the Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid picks.

In the round of 32 in this competition, Real Madrid defeated regional side Cacerano 1-0.

Following that, it overcame fellow La Liga outfit Villareal 3-2 on January 9.

Atletico Madrid, moreover, has played two rounds more. 

In the first two rounds, it overcame regional teams Alamazan and Arenteiro.

Then, it subsequently defeated Oviedo of the Second Division in the round of 32 by 2-0.

In the following round of 16, it defeated another Second Disvion side Levante – again by 2-0.

In La Liga, Real Madrid has won twice and lost once since the post-World Cup resumption.

Its most recent result was a 2-0 away win at Athletic Bilbao last weekend.

In total, it has lost two and won three of its last five league games – which therefore represents stuttering form in the pursuit of Barcelona.

It also lost 3-1 against Barcelona in the final of the Spanish Super Cup on January 15 in Saudi Arabia.

So coach Carlo Ancelotti will certainly be looking for some re-established consistency in the derby cup meeting of Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid.

However, Atletico Madrid has not been firing on all cylinders, either.

Since the post-World Cup re-start it has won twice in La Liga with one draw and one defeat – with its most recent result a 3-0 home win against Valladolid last Saturday.

It won only once in the Champions League and finished bottom of its group.
