The Madrid Derby is set to take place this weekend as Real Madrid hosts Atletico Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Last weekend was very successful for Real Madrid as they leaped over FC Barcelona and secure top spot on the ladder. In their previous outing, Real Madrid defeated Valladolid 1-0 away from home. It was a solid performance by Real Madrid as the team controlled 63% of the possession and had 12 shots. Nacho was exceptional as he scored the winning goal for the team. Real Madrid have only lost 1 game in La Liga this season and the team seems to be playing with exceptional amounts of confidence. Considering their recent form, Real Madrid will be very confident in their ability to perform well in this match.
On the other side of the coin, Atletico Madrid have struggled this season. As it currently stands, Atletico Madrid have 36 points from their 21 games and are in 5th position. In their previous outing, Atletico Madrid only managed a 0-0 draw at home against Leganes. It was a poor performance by Atletico Madrid as they only managed to maintain 56% of the possession and only had 3 shots on target. It has been a hard few months for Atletico Madrid and I see them having a big issue going forward. Considering their recent form, I see Atletico Madrid struggling in this match.
Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid last played each other a few weeks ago in the Supercopa. The match ended as a 0-0 draw but Real Madrid won the tie via a penalty shoot-out.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Real Madrid to win this match. Atletico Madrid have struggled over the past few months and I see the team lacking confidence. Real Madrid are in good form and have the advantage of playing at home. I see Real Madrid winning this match with some ease.
