Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Match Preview & Team News
The hosts have been pretty inconsistent lately, but they still sit in 1st place. Atletico Madrid is five points ahead of their fiercest rivals and has one game in hand. After two hiccups against Levante, Diego Simeone’s side managed to get back on the winning track thanks to a 2:0 victory away at Villarreal. Although Los Colchoneros had some defensive troubles lately, they are still the tightest team in the competition. On the other hand, Luis Suarez and the lads are the second-most efficient team in La Liga. Atletico puts excellent performances at Wanda Metropolitano this season, but they failed to win on the previous two occasions. If they manage to pick up all three points in the Madrileño Derby, the hosts will be very close to clinching the title.
Real Madrid has been having severe injury troubles lately, but they successfully overcame those tough weeks. Los Blancos enjoyed a five-match winning streak until last Monday when Real Sociedad picked up a point in Madrid. The visitors missed the chance to stay just three points behind their rivals, and they don’t have the right for more mistakes. Karim Benzema’s comeback is a huge relief for Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid’s performances severely depend on the French international. Real Madrid has been pretty tight in the back lately, and the away side conceded only once in the previous five games. They have been on an excellent run on the road, as Real celebrated in the last three outings. The visitors need to search for a win that can bring them closer to the top spot.
