On Sunday, starting at 4.15pm, Atlético de Madrid and Real Madrid will play at the Wanda Metropolitano, behind closed doors, the most interesting match of the 26th day of LaLiga Santander.
Atleti is presented to the derby as leader of the League, with 58 points, ahead of Barcelona and Real Madrid, and one game less.
The colchoneros will know the result of Barça’s match against Osasuna, which will be one more extra incentive. A red-and-white victory would move Madrid to 8 points, which would considerably reduce their chances of continuing to fight for the title. On the other hand, if they tie or fall against the whites, the latter will get “an extra point”, since they will have won the goal average in case of a tie on points (they won 2-0 in the first round).
Atleti comes to the meeting with enthusiasm and some doubts. His latest results have shown that his players are human. After falling to Levante and Chelsea, the rojiblancos managed to recover by winning at Villarreal. They will not need extra motivation to fight in the derby in order to show that they are the best team in Madrid.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, continues to have a large number of casualties, but it seems that they do not care. Whites almost always offer their best version in the most difficult moments and this is one of them. No one can rule out that they achieve victory on Sunday.
