            Two city rivals face off in the Madrid derby as both Real and Atletico look to gain ground on the teams above them.

            Los Blancos sit second in the league, one point behind surprise leaders Girona, who alongside Real, have lost just once this season. Victory for Carlo Ancelotti’s men will see them leapfrog the table toppers to go two points clear. They currently have one game in hand on the teams around them.

            Atletico Madrid lie in third, ten points behind their upcoming opponents following their 2-0 victory against Valencia on Sunday night. This result saw them climb above both Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao in what is a very congested part of the standings.

            Ancelotti’s side have by far the best defence in the league, conceding just 14 goals in 21 games this season. However, it is young English midfielder Jude Bellingham who has stolen all the headlines for his spectacular performances throughout the season. At just 20 years old, he has emerged as the team’s star player and has scored an incredible 18 goals in 23 games. He is supported by the likes of Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr, who have also had great contributions so far, scoring 10 and eight goals respectively in all competitions.

            To get past Real’s defence, Diego Simeone will be looking to his prolific duo up top in Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann to lead their attack. The pair have scored a combined 34 goals.

            This will be the fourth meeting between the two sides this season. Two of these fixtures have come this month in the Copa Del Rey and Spanish Supercup. A victory apiece saw Real advance to the Supercup final with a 5-3 extra-time win, before they eventually beat Barcelona in the final. Atletico got their revenge as they sealed their place in the quarter-finals of the Copa Del Rey.

            In the reverse fixture earlier this campaign, Atletico Madrid once again came out on top, handing their rivals their one and only league defeat so far. Los Colchoneros won the game 3-1, with goals from Morata and Griezmann securing the victory. The Spaniard put them ahead after just four minutes before Griezmann doubled the lead. Toni Kroos pulled one back for the visitors prior to the break but then Morata added his second and Atleti’s third after the restart.

            Real Madrid

            In their last five games, Real Madrid have won four and lost once. Their sole defeat came against their city rivals Atletico Madrid in the Copa Del Rey. Their 4-2 loss came in extra-time, as they came from behind twice to level the scores before succumbing to goals from Antoine Griezmann and Rodrigo Riquelme. This was their second meeting with Atletico in five games, with the first being a 5-3 win in the semi-final of the Spanish Supercup. This one was also back and forth with both sides taking the lead throughout. Real eventually pulled away in extra-time with strikes from Joselu and Brahim Diaz.

            This put them in the final against Barcelona, and they dominated their rivals 4-1 in El Clasico to win the trophy. Vinicius Jr scored a hat-trick, before Rodrygo added a fourth. Robert Lewandowski was on the scoresheet for Barcelona.

            Following their cup success, they returned to league action, with two late victories. Firstly, against Almeria, in which they edged their opponents 3-2 after a stunning 99th-minute winner from Dani Carvajal. The Spanish giants were 2-0 down at half-time, but managed to claw it back to 2-2 by the 67th minute thanks to goals from Bellingham and Vinicius. Their most recent outing had the same ending, though they did not leave it as late. Away at Las Palmas, they fell a goal behind before Vinicius scored an equaliser. Aurelien Tchouameni bagged the winner with six minutes of play remaining to keep Los Blancos within touching distance of Girona.

            They now face a trip to Getafe in midweek before they face Atletico Madrid for a third time in recent weeks.

            Atletico Madrid

            In their last five games, Atletico Madrid have won three times and lost once. This stretch of games began with their one and only defeat to this weekend’s opponents Real Madrid in the Spanish Supercup semi-final. They faced their city rivals again just a week later but this time came out on top with a 4-2 win in the Copa Del Rey.

            This victory earned them a place in the quarter-finals of the competition, in which they faced Sevilla. In what was a tightly contested fixture, Atletico scored the winner in the 79th minute through Memphis Depay to set up a semi-final date with Athletic Bilbao.

            In between these two cup ties, they secured another narrow 1-0 win with Alvaro Morata’s 54th-minute winner the difference between them and 19th-place Granada. Their most recent outing saw them beat Valencia 2-0 to overtake Barcelona in third. Goals from Samuel Lino and Memphis Depay ensured all three points.

            A home game against Rayo Vallecano awaits in midweek before they face their Madrid rivals once more at the weekend.

            Footy Accumulators Prediction

            This fixture has seen 19 goals in just three games this season, so we expect this fiery derby to produce goals. Real Madrid will be desperate for three points to keep pace with Girona, whilst Atleti want to maintain their place in the top four. This will be a highly contested affair, but Real’s home advantage should give them the edge – Real Madrid 3-2 Atletico Madrid.
