Madrid’s five-match winning run in the league was ended in a 1-1 draw with Real Sociedad last Monday. Zinedine Zidane’s side have been playing catch up for a number of months and are five points behind Atleti, whom they have played a game more than. This, then, is effectively a must-win clash for the visitors. Atletico’s form has been inconsistent of late, though they did beat Villarreal 2-0 last weekend to pick up a second win in five league outings. Diego Simeone’s men enter this game with their bitter rivals two points clear of Barcelona at the top of LaLiga, having played two games fewer than their closest challengers.
