Real Madrid La Liga leaders, receive injured Atletico

Real Madrid's side face neighbors Atlético Madrid, who are suffering from the latest negative results today in the Spanish capital derby at the Santiago Bernabéu.

The rivalry between the two Madrid teams is one of the most important and extended conflicts between the clubs in history in the world of football and has become even more exciting in recent years. Suffice it to point out that this weekend's match may play a major role in the 2019/20 league title race.

Real Madrid is preparing for this match as they take the lead three points away from their traditional rivals Barcelona, having fallen to Valencia last weekend. Meanwhile, Atlético is 10 points away in fifth place, so they desperately need to win at the Bernabéu to maintain their chances of winning the title.

Last weekend, Zinedine Zidane's battalion overcame a difficult test at The Valladolid Stadium, thanks to a header in the second half by multi-skilled defender Nacho. Meanwhile, the Diego Simeone Cubs did not score more than a 0-0 draw in another derby against their neighbor scoring in south Madrid Leganés.

The Whites have the best performance in the league after winning 12 points in their last six off-field matches, at a time of particular strength at home, winning seven times and drawing three times in their last 10 games this season.

On the other hand, the red and white team had a rough time off the field. He has won only three of 10 meetings so far and was surprisingly beaten 2-0 by Eibar in his last away game.

The heart of the French attack, Karim Benzema, continues to top his team's top scorers by signing 12 goals in 20 La Liga games. Goalkeeper Tebo Courtois, who has kept his net clean in five of his seven away matches in la Liga, has also starred and has scored only seven goals at the Santiago Bernabéu this season.

Although Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard have suffered physical problems recently, Zinedine Zidane hopes one of these strikers will be ready for Saturday's clash.

Meanwhile, Ángel Correa has the best offensive performance for Atlético, scoring two goals and scoring two crucial passes in his last five games. Brazilian defender Filipe has merged well with the team, while Croatian right-back Šime Vrsaljko returned last weekend from a long absence due to injury. The upcoming derby will also be a special occasion for red and white players Álvaro Morata, Marcos Llorente and Mario Hermoso, as these players were previously wearing the Real Madrid shirt during their football career.

The last derby between the two giants of the Spanish capital in January in the final of the Spanish Super Cup, in which the royal team won after resorting to penalty shootouts, and added to the history records another dramatic victory reminiscent of the two victories achieved by Real Madrid in the final of the Champions League in 2014 and 2016 on the red and white neighbor. The first meeting between the two teams of the 2019/20 season was at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, and this hot showdown ended without goals.

However, Diego Simeone's team have achieved excellent results recently at the Bernabéu, winning two matches and drawing three in their last five visits to The White Castle. He also won the famous 2013 Copa del Rey final against his neighbor and on the pitch.

Atletico will have to find out if their record of good in recent years in this match is enough to produce a positive result against Real Madrid, who have been performing well recently in la Liga. La Liga fans around the world are watching Saturday's match to see what happens at the Santiago Bernabéu.
