La Liga officially announced that the second —and last— Madrid Derby between Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid of the 2019-2020 Liga season will be played on February 1st, kicking off at 16:00 CEST.

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.

Madrid will host Sevilla, Atletico, Barcelona and Valencia after visiting all four of these teams during the first half of the 2019-2020 campaign.

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.
