Real Madrid vs Atl. Madrid: Derby without Suárez? Atlético’s top striker injured
Real Madrid won comfortably at home against Inter Milan on Tuesday night, topping their UEFA Champions League group as a result. In the meantime Atletico Madrid scraped through in 2nd place after a hard fought away win against FC Porto.
Domestically, Los Blancos are on top of the table, 10 points above Los Colchoneros who are currently 4th, albeit with a game in hand.
Diego Simeone’s side so far have not lived up to the expectations this season. His team often struggles in front of the goal, uncharacteristically conceding a high number of goals for their standards. This doesn’t bode well heading into the fierce Madrid derby.
A win here could kick-start their season whilst a loss would almost definitely write off their title chances.
