Sunday’s La Liga (LL) action closes out with the 169th instalment of the Madrid derby (Real: W89, D40, L39), with table-topping Real Madrid playing host to champions Atlético Madrid. It’s a fixture steeped in history, with only the Catalonian derby being played out on more occasions in LL, but for Real it’s about more than bragging rights, with a chance to notch a seventh-straight LL victory to consolidate their position at the top.

Real will fancy their chances of doing so, having lost just once on home soil in LL in 2021 (2-1 vs Levante), whilst when hosting Atlético, Real haven’t lost in five matches (W2, D3). The last three matches in that run have been accompanied by a clean sheet, but never in LL history have Real kept four successive clean sheets against their city counterparts.


Atlético will be keen to play the role of party-poopers though, and after a humiliating 2-1 defeat to Mallorca last time out in LL, a return to the road may well be welcome. Diego Simeone’s side have netted 2+ goals in seven of their last eight LL road trips and have collected the joint-third most away points in LL this season ahead of the round.
Despite the recent H2H history, goals could be on the menu this time around, as 67% of LL games involving Atlético boast over 2.5 goals this season - the second highest in LL, only below none-other than Real (69%). It’s just as well Atlético are finding goals easy to come by, because they are struggling to keep them out the other end and are without a LL away clean sheet this season.


Real’s Karim Benzema netted in the last LL meeting between these sides and his last six scoring appearances have seen him end up on the winning side. Meanwhile, Antoine Griezmann was the last Atlético player to score a LL goal at the Santiago Bernabéu back in 2018, and all three of his LL goals this season have come away from home.

Atlético have received at least three yellow cards in their last ten away LL H2Hs.


REAL MADRID (4-3-3): Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy, Modric, Casemiro, Kroos, Rodrygo, Jovic, Vinicius Junior
ATLETICO MADRID (3-5-2): Oblak, Gonzalez, Kondogbia, Hermoso, Llorente, Lemar, Koke, De Paul, Carrasco, Griezmann, Cunha
