The Atl. Madrid vs. Real Madrid match will be played on Saturday, November 18, at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, Madrid. The El Madrileno is the derby match of Primera Division round 12. Atletico Madrid is currently 4th on the table with 23 points, while Real Madrid is 3rd on the table, also with 23 points at the moment.
In their last ten meetings, Atletico Madrid recorded three victories, Real Madrid also had three wins, while four matches ended in a draw. In their last nine games we saw under 3.5 goals.
Atletico Madrid is struggling to score goals at the moment, but it seems they have found the recipe for their defense. In competitive matches, Atletico Madrid conceded two goals only twice this season and nobody managed to score three against them. It is clear that their defensive setup will be Atletico's biggest advantage in the upcoming game. However, if they concede first, it is very hard to expect they will manage to get back into the game.

Real Madrid is eight points behind Barcelona at the moment, which is completely unexpected after their clash in the Spanish Super Cup in the beginning of the season. However, Cristiano Ronaldo's suspension and his recent bad form cost Real Madrid and they simply must win the match against Atletico to stay in the race for the title.

We don't expect to see many goals here. Real Madrid will attack from the first minute, while Atletico Madrid will try to hurt them on counter attacks. It seems that the hosts will be more satisfied with the draw, while the reigning Spanish and European champions will be happy only if they win.
