Real Madrid – Atletico Madrid
Real Madrid hosts Atletico Madrid at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano in a game from the 13th round of La Liga. The local Madrid derby is always giving us some strong emotions, so we hope to see another great fixture as well.
Real Madrid are being not as consistent as they want from the beginning of the season. Los Blancos are 4th in the standings with 20 points and six points behind the current leaders Atletico. Last week Zinedine Zidane’s team won a key visit to Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, but they need to follow this performance with another one.
It was not an easy game against Sevilla last week, but Madrid still managed to snatch the three points. Sevilla’s Yassine Bounou scored himself an own goal in the beginning of the second half and it was enough for the visitors to secure the win.
Zidane must find a way to keep his team fresh during the week. On Wednesday Real Madrid have a crucial game against Borussia M’gladbach in the Champions League, so the French manager can’t rest any of his key players.
Atletico Madrid are the best team since the beginning of the season in La Liga. Right now Los Colchoneros are leading the table with 26 points won from 10 matches played. They also enjoy a run of seven consecutive wins in the league which is giving them some great confidence before their visit to the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano. The best news lately for Atletico is the return of the striker Luis Suarez who was diagnosed with COVID-19 few weeks ago.
That’s our preview for the La Liga clash between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid on Saturday. It’s always exciting when these two teams meet, so we have all reasons to expect a huge Madrid derby at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
