SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Real Madrid's Champions League meeting with Atalanta.
Real Madrid vs Atalanta ( Tuesday, 20:00)
Real Madrid will be looking to secure their passage to the quarter-finals stage of the Champions League when they welcome Atalanta to the Spanish capital on Tuesday night.
Zinedine Zidane's side have looked uninspiring at times this season but they head into this second-leg tie holding a slight advantage, after recording a 1-0 win in Bergamo last month.
However, attack-minded Atalanta will fancy their chances of turning this tie around given that they have triumphed in each of their last five continental road trips.
In fact, La Dea's only away defeats this season have come at Inter and Napoli, but I'm going to steer clear of the match result market here and instead head to the Bet Builder feature.
The even-money (1/1) combination that I'm going to side with on Tuesday night is over zero Atalanta goals and over one Real Madrid card.
Gian Piero Gasperini's swashbucklers have quickly become one of Europe's most lauded teams and they will have to go for broke at some point on Tuesday night.
The Bergamo outfit have made the net bulge 63 times in 27 Serie A assignments this season and they demonstrated their big-game mettle when landing impressive away wins at Ajax and Liverpool during the last round of competition.
What's more, Real are without a clean sheet in each of their last three La Liga fixtures and I fancy forward-thinking Atalanta to breach a Los Blancos backline that also conceded in 4/6 Champions League Group Stage outings this season.
Given what's at stake here, coupled with the fact that Real Madrid are defending a delicate lead, I'll complete the Bet Builder by backing the Spanish champions to see over one card during this second-leg showdown.
Real Madrid, despite playing the bulk of the first-leg with an extra man, received two bookings and it's also worth noting that they have chalked up two or more cards in two of their three home games in the Champions League this term.
What's more, Dutch referee Danny Makkelie will take charge of this dust-up and his card per game average in the Champions League this season sits at a lofty 5.33 per 90 minutes.
- Over 0 Atalanta Goals & Over 1 Real Madrid Card – Bet Builder – 1/1 (Bet 365)
