Real Madrid have dominated this fixture for over a decade but there is real hope that Atletico Madrid can turn the tables at the Bernabeu on Saturday December 1, 2012 (kick off at 21.00 UK time) in one of the most eagerly awaited Madrid derby clashes for some time.

Traditionally, Ateltico Madrid receive a battering in this fixture and have not won at the Bernabeu since 1999. This time it could well be different though as Diego Simeone’s side are a whopping eight points clear of their local rivals in second position.
After Barcelona’s blistering start, Atletico are currently the only likely challengers for the La Liga title from the Spanish capital and with a clash at the Nou Camp coming in mid-December, this is a crucial period for the Rojiblancos.
Radamel Falcao will be the main threat for Atletico and has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu after banging in the goals at the Vicente Calderon.
In the lead up to the Madrid derby, the Colombian striker said: “We players will go out looking to win. I do not see myself happy to take a draw. Sometimes depending on the circumstances of a game a draw is okay but when we take to the field, we go out to win. Players always want to win and take on challenges. The competitive spirit to overcome your opponent comes from inside.”
Real Madrid cannot be underestimated despite a poor start to the league season which continued with a 1-0 defeat at Real Betis last week.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been quiet of late and Jose Mourinho was booed by certain sections of the Bernabeu crowd during the Copa del Rey win over Alcoyano in midweek.
But it would be no surprise to see Los Blancos bounce back with a fine display against a team they simply always seem to beat.
