Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid

Estadio Wanda Metropolitano is the venue as Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid go head-to-head in a blockbuster La Liga showdown.

Atletico Madrid’s bid to qualify for next season’s Champions League is in jeopardy after a run of one win from their last four La Liga games (D1, L2) left them only three points clear of fifth-placed Real Betis. Diego Simeone’s men will be under pressure to deliver the goods against bitter cross-town rivals they have failed to defeat in their last eight competitive H2Hs (D4, L4). Moreover, ‘Los Rojiblancos’ drew a blank in six of those eight meetings, which has been the case in five of their six previous matches across all competitions. Signs are ominous as Atletico hope to register their first-ever competitive triumph over Real Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano after going winless in their four previous H2Hs here (D3, L1).

As for Real Madrid, a sensational come-from-behind 3-1 win over Manchester City in the return leg of their Champions League semi-final tie catapulted ‘Los Blancos’ into their 17th grand final of Europe’s most prestigious competition. With Madrid’s confidence at another level after a run of five straight La Liga wins witnessed them dethrone Atletico last time out, Carlo Ancelotti’s men will look to maintain their eye-catching 15-game league record against fellow Madrilean rivals (W10, D4, L1). Further adding to the visitors’ confidence, they’ve won their last five La Liga matches on the road, bagging precisely three goals on each occasion.
