Match preview

It’s the first Madrid derby of the season, with Atlético desperately hoping to be the first side to stop Real this season.

So far, los Blancos have won all eight matches this season, first picking up the UEFA Super Cup in Helsinki.

Domestically, Carlo Ancelotti’s team are five for five, most recently coming from a goal down to defeat Mallorca 4-1 last Sunday.

Fede Valverde with a spectacular equaliser, before Vinícius Júnior, Rodrygo and Antonio Rüdiger secured the win.

In the Champions League, it’s a similar story; two games played, two wins, five goals scored and zero conceded.

On Wednesday, Real didn’t play particularly well, but eventually beat RB Leipzig 2-0 at the Bernabéu, with Valverde and Marco Asensio both scoring late.

So, the Spanish and European champions have been literally unstoppable this season, so far.

Atlético Madrid are hopeful of changing that, despite enduring an underwhelming start to the campaign.

Los Colchoneros were very poor in the Champions League on Tuesday night, conceding twice in the final five minutes, thereby slumping to a 2-0 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen.

In La Liga, Diego Simeone’s team have ten points to their name, enjoying a 4-1 victory over Celta de Vigo last weekend.

Ángel Correa, Rodrigo De Paul and Yannick Carrasco the scorers, before an own goal secured the points.

Atleti beat a heavily rotated Real side back in May but, before this, had won just two of 16 Derbi Madrileños.

Will it be a famous night at Cívitas Metropolitano, or will Real Madrid’s 100% record this season continue?
