Copa Del Rey: Live Odds for Real Madrid vs AtleticoPublished January 15, 2015 by Sol FH
Real Madrid host their rivals Atletico Madrid tonight at 19:00 and desperately need a win.
Real Madrid rarely find themselves in the situation they have got themselves into tonight. After losing the first leg of the Copa Del Rey Round of 16 to Atletico 2-0 at Vicente Calderon, Real must now not only win, but cover the goal deficit at the same time. The true test and their future in the Copa Del Rey gets underway tonight.
Will History Repeat Itself?
In the first leg it was Raul Garcia and Jose Gimenez that were crowned heroes of the night after each found the back of the net. Atletico seem to drain the energy from Real in every game they have played in various leagues, as over four games, Real Madrid has lost three and drawn once. Both Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid are still in Champions League play but the question is who can secure the win in the clutch.
Even in La Liga action, Real is still leading the table but Barcelona beat Atletico 3-1 on January 11th and are now only one point off the lead. Making things even more terrifying for Real, they face Atletico on February 8th and if they lose it will have been just one team to destroy their season in multiple leagues.
