This will be a crucial match for Real Madrid and the first crucial home game for the second half of the season. Los Blancos are now two points behind Barcelona in the table and will need to take care of business at the Santiago Bernabeu in almost every game if they want to compete for the title.
While Atletico de Madrid have been a bit underwhelming so far this year, Simeone’s side are planning on making some crucial signings this winter, as reports indicate that they will sign Edinson Cavani as soon as the transfer window opens.
