Real to clinch derby spoils
Real Madrid play host to Atletico Madrid on Tuesday in the Champions League semi-final first leg and home advantage could be crucial.
The two Madrid teams have become accustomed to playing each other in Europe's top club competition recently, having contested the Champions League final in both 2014 and 2016, and it has been Los Blancos who took the spoils in both of those matches.

Zinedine Zidane's men have home advantage in the first leg of the last-four encounter and the fierce support inside the Santiago Bernabeu could prove to be crucial in helping the hosts build a lead.

The French tactician has only suffered two defeats at home across all competitions this season - a 2-1 loss to Celta Vigo in January and a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Barcelona last month - and backing a home win at n/a could be a good bet.

Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo is in sparkling form once again this term, having bagged 20 goals from 26 La Liga appearances, while recording seven strikes in 10 European matches.

One big question ahead of the contest is who will get the nod as the central striker on Tuesday with both Karim Benzema and Alvaro Morata vying for the position. The latter has struggled to cement a regular starting place in the first team since rejoining from Juventus last summer but he has found the back of the net 13 times from 23 league outings.

France international Benzema, on the other hand, has come in for plenty of criticism this season, having scored just nine league goals, but he has been preferred to Morata when it comes to the Champions League.

Zidane's men do not tend to struggle for goals, whoever they decide to put out with Los Blancos the second-highest scorers in La Liga in this campaign, amassing an incredible 92 strikes with only Barcelona (104) having a better record.

Los Blancos are also on a 14-game unbeaten run in the Champions League and you have to go back to April 2016 for the last defeat the current holders suffered - a 2-0 away loss to Wolfsburg.

However, there is still hope for Atletico and the visitors will be looking to France international Antoine Griezmann to ensure they come away from the Bernabeu with a positive result.

The 26-year-old forward, who has scored 16 times in 33 La Liga outings, has found the back of the net five times in Europe this term and backing more than 2.5 goals at n/a provides value.

Diego Simeone's men also have a decent record against their rivals, having lost just one of the previous five meetings in 90 minutes, and they will be hopeful of coming away with at least a draw before the second leg on May 10th.

Overall, looking at the balance of the two sides going into the clash, Real just appear to have the edge and a home win, possibly 2-1 or 3-1, could be witnessed on Tuesday night.
