Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid: Preview, Free tip & Prediction
The seventeenth round of Spain's top football competition will conclude with the derby in the Spanish capital when Real Madrid welcome visiting Atletico Madrid to their stadium.
Basic information, news and team form
Real Madrid entered this season with uncertain prospects. In the summer, long-time defensive stalwarts Sergio Ramos left the team for PSG in France and Frenchman Raphael Varane left the British Isles for Manchester United. The only defender to join the club in the summer was David Alaba, whose contract at Bayern had expired and so came for free. Alaba instantly fitted into the line-up perfectly and he and the reborn Milito formed a great stopper duo. The third-best defence in the league is proof of the great chemistry between the two stoppers, as Los Blancos lead the table with 39 points, with a record of 12 wins, three draws and one defeat. In the summer, the new coach Carlo Ancelotti, who came from Everton, also returned to the club and managed to awaken the Brazilian Vinicius, who has already scored 10 goals and is the second-best scorer in La Liga after Benzema. The next game is very important for Atletico in terms of keeping in touch with the top of the table. The defending champion, despite a great start to the season, has dropped points in several matches, such as the surprising loss to relegation doomed Espanyol. Or a home loss in the last round after a shocking 1-2 defeat to Mallorca, which saw Atleti drop to fourth in the table. During the week, Atleti, like Real Madrid, played their last Champions League group stage match and, thanks to a 3-1 home win over Porto, secured promotion from second place to the knockout stages. Atletico has not beaten their rivals since the 2015/2016 season. They will have to break this poor record in their next match.
