Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Match Preview & Team News
Real Madrid has been very dominant lately, as they have celebrated their ninth straight win on Tuesday. They have secured the top spot in the Champions League group stage with a 2:0 victory over Inter. Carlo Ancelotti’s side leads the La Liga title race, being eight points ahead of Sevilla. Real Madrid has been very disciplined in the back lately, as they conceded only once in the previous five games. On the other hand, Los Blancos have been pretty productive, scoring 37 goals in 16 matches. Karim Benzema will be doubtful for this clash, but Luka Jovic served well to backup him. Real Madrid wants to continue its streak and increase its advantage on the top spot.
Atletico Madrid hasn’t been that convincing this season. Despite winning in Porto on Tuesday and advancing to the knockout stage, they booked only three wins on the previous seven occasions. The defending champions sit in 4th place, being ten points behind their fierce rivals, but having a game in hand. However, a defeat in this clash could hurt their title bid severely. Diego Simeone’s side struggles to keep discipline in the back, conceding in each of the last four games. He will also have selection issues, as Luis Suarez will be questionable for this game. Nevertheless, Atletico Madrid wants to put another good away display and stay in the title race.
