Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Preview

Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Wanda Metropolitano

Date: 18th November 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

The first Madrid derby of the season takes us to the Wanda Metropolitana and with both Capital teams struggling this is likely be a close affair.

Atletico Madrid are having a terrible season by their standard and after 11 games, they are still looking for a saviour.

They are currently counting days before January when Vitolo and Diego Costa will become available to play.

However, they have played just 4 games at home this season and that should tip the scale in their favour when the fixtures begin to balance out next year.

Despite his poor form, Antoine Griezmann remains Atleti’s best attacker netting in %50 of their games this season.

Real Madrid are a vulnerable side at the moment especially when they play away from home.

They have lost their last two games at Girona and Tottenham and this will be another tough away day with Star men like Christiano Ronaldo struggling for goals and Gareth Bale struggling with injuries and general fitness.

After scoring in all of their competitive games last season, they have failed to net in just one of their 20 games this season.

Despite not always winning they have played some of their best attacking football away from home this season as they have scored an average of 2.2 goals per travel.

Real Madrid have only lost one of their last 16 league meetings with Atleti and they come into this tie slight favourites with the bookies despite playing away from home.
