Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid: La Liga – Match Preview

The first Madrid derby of the season takes place on Saturday as Atletico host their city rivals Real.

Atletico Madrid secured a much needed win in mid-week with a 2-0 win away at Real Mallorca.

Diego Costa’s strike was doubled by summer signing Joao Felix to send Atletico into third.

Real Madrid have won three in a row and are the early La Liga leaders despite the immense pressure on manager Zinedine Zidane.

The Brazilian duo of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo scored the goals in a comfortable home victory over Osasuna.

Alvaro Morata will miss the weekend’s action after picking up two yellow cards against Real Mallorca.

Thomas Lemar is expected to start on the left, with Felix moving up front.

Nacho will continue at left-back with both Ferland Mendy and Marcelo out.

Luka Modric is unlikely to be fit enough, meaning James Rodriguez will feature further forward.
