Real Madrid will make the trip across town to the Metropolitano to face city rivals Atletico Madrid on Sunday night, 9pm CET, in what promises to be a tension-filled game.
Atletico Madrid currently sit seventh place in La Liga, having scored nine goals in their opening five games while conceding four. They’ve had difficulties this season on both ends of the field, and are recently coming off a 2 – 0 loss in Germany to Bayer Leverkusen where Felipe and Mario Hermoso played together in defense and were blown away.
Expect head coach Diego Simeone to go back to something more similar to where his team won 4 – 1 in Celta Vigo in their last La Liga game. In that game, Reinieldo started as the left center-back of the defensive line while Yannick Carrasco took left-wing-back duties and Geoffrey Kondogbia provided balance in midfield (neither of the latter two players started vs Leverkusen).
