Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid − Match preview
This could be a cracker. The Madrid derby’s always a feisty affair, but the last one − a pre-season friendly − got downright nasty.
Diego Simeone’s side battered their more glamorous city rivals 7-3 back in July, and Diego Costa and Dani Carvajal both saw red midway through the second half after a mass brawl broke out.
But it’s Zinedine Zidane’s side that come into this weekend at the top of La Liga, albeit just one point ahead of Atleti. Los Blancos, however, have been far from their best, and Los Rojiblancos can take a huge amount of confidence from PSG’s dismantling of Real in the Champions League the other week.
