Real Madrid head to another Spanish La Liga weekend with a Madrid derby against Atletico Madrid at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.
The last time the ‘whites‘ were on duty in the domestic scene, they defeated Sevilla thanks to an own goal through the home side goalkeeper Bono after a strong strike from Vinicius Junior.
The Los Merengues also qualified for the Championship League round of 16 with a crucial win over visitors Borussia Mönchengladbach on Wednesday night.
Madridstas bounced back to the top four last weekend after beating Sevilla, even as it almost looked like the season is already in muddy waters.
Atletico Madrid who took over the top spot from Real Sociedad is now six points above their city rivals Real Madrid.
