It’s once again that time of the year as the Los Blancos will be up against rivals Atletico Madrid in the Madrid Derby at Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid have gone through their fair share of ups and downs this season but their last performance against Liverpool at Anfield was a pretty stroll down the memory lane as the defending champions thrashed the Reds 5-2 after being down by 2 goals.
The Los Rojiblancos similarly have managed to get themselves back up after some poor outings, the Diego Simeone side have been on a six-match undefeated streak in the LaLiga which has been their longest this season.
The team managed to get past Athletic Club thanks to a 73rd minute goal from Antoine Griezmann. The side are currently 18 points behind table-toppers Barcelona which puts the title out of question. However, a win in the Madrid derby could be a good way to finish things in what could potentially be Simeone’s last season with the club.
