The Wanda Metropolitano stadium is in the seventh round of La Liga, when Real Madrid visit Atletico, in a match where the dialogue will be at the forefront. The two teams reach the game after they have overcome the crisis of the results in the recent period, where the Real recovered after the resounding fall against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League 3-0, and won in the last two games against Seville, which ousted him from the top and rose to the Royal with 14 points, after boosting They beat Osasuna 2-0 in the last round and Atletico beat Real Mallorca 2-0 in the last round to reach 13th place in the runners-up in partnership with Real Sociedad.
It will also be an interesting conversation on the technical side between Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, who want to defeat Atletico in the history of their clashes with La Liga. At the same time, Atletico coach Simeone wants to return the debt to Zidane, who was behind the loss of the dream of the heroes on more than one occasion, besides his superiority as coach of Real. The two teams met in the Madrid derby «La Liga» on 164 occasions, won the Real in 87, and Atletico 39 times. Last season, Real won 3-1 and drew 0-0, but Atletico suffered a humiliating defeat, even though they were in a warm-up match in the run-up to last summer's 7-3.
In the Osasuna match, Zidane returned to his favorite «rotation» game, rested a number of key players for the derby, Belgian Eden Hazard, who is still looking for his first goal, as well as French Karim Benzema, the top scorer of the five goals, Gareth Bale and goalkeeper Courtois. On the other hand, the last game witnessed an unusual glow for the stars Samba, Vincius, who celebrated his first official goal with Real in the league in seven months, as well as his compatriot Rodrigo on his goal in the first official league game with Real, and the two players will be an important option on the bench against Zidane .
On the other hand, Brazilian Marcelo may not return from injury, while Mendi, Ibrahim Diaz and Asensio are absent, and Modric is expected to return.
Atletico, meanwhile, regained their glamor, and Mallorca saw Diego Costa's first goal since March, but at the same time denied Atletico his top scorer Alvaro Morata, who misses the derby due to a red card. Interestingly at Atletico Madrid, most of their players are scoring, which could pose a bigger problem for the unstable defense of Real. Simeone's most notable up front will be Costa and Portuguese teenager Joao Felix, who has two goals so far with Atletico.
