Real Madrid visit Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano in what will be Alvaro Morata’s first Madrid Derby wearing Atleti’s red and white.
Los Blancos are coming off a very tough El Clasico against Barcelona last Wednesday and it’s safe to assume that they might be tired, so this game could be a good chance for players like Bale or Asensio to get some of the relevant minutes they need in order to compete for a starting spot later in the season. This will also be Thibaut Courtois’ first match facing Atletico’s fans and he should be expecting some loud jeers every time he touches the ball.
Real Madrid managed to cut Barcelona’s lead down to eight points last weekend and a win here would put some more pressure on Barça’s side. Los Blancos have been playing better football recently and a statement win at the Wanda Metropolitano would give them a huge boost in confidence.
