Get ready for an epic showdown as Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid face off at the Cívitas Metropolitano. This intense rivalry is always one to watch, and it's the visitors who come into this match with confidence on their side. Real Madrid has had a fantastic start to their La Liga campaign, winning all five of their league games so far this season. They also secured a late victory over Union Berlin in the Champions League.
On the other hand, Atletico Madrid has had a slower start to the season, but their struggles can be attributed to a long list of injuries. Manager Diego Simeone has been dealing with major issues due to key players being sidelined. Despite a 3-1 win against Granada on the opening day, Atleti were held to a draw at Real Betis, followed by a dominant 7-0 victory at Rayo Vallecano. However, they suffered a defeat at the hands of Valencia last weekend. In the Champions League, they managed a 1-1 draw against Lazio, thanks to a memorable late equalizer from home goalkeeper Ivan Provedel.
Now, all attention turns to the highly anticipated derby between the Madrid rivals. Atletico will be missing several players due to injuries, including Thomas Lemar, club captain Koke, Vitolo, and Reinaldo. Rodrigo De Paul is also a doubt after picking up a muscle injury during the international break, while Caglar Soynucu is not expected to return until next month. To make matters worse, Memphis Depay, Pablo Barrios, and Axel Witsel are all struggling with injuries as well.
Real Madrid also has their share of injury concerns, although not as severe as Atletico's. Goalkeeper Thibault Courtois and centre-back Eder Militao are definite absentees due to cruciate ligament injuries. There are also doubts over Vinicius Junior and Dani Carvajal, who will undergo assessments before decisions are made about their involvement.
Both managers are aware of the significance of this derby. Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti acknowledges the intensity and quality that these games bring, regardless of recent results. Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone recognizes the challenge of facing a strong and resilient opponent like Real Madrid. He knows it will be a difficult game but is determined to find the best approach to take on their rivals.
One player to watch out for is Jude Bellingham, the young English talent who has been in outstanding form since joining Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund. Bellingham has made an immediate impact, scoring six goals and providing one assist in just six games across all competitions. His latest heroics came in the form of a dramatic late winner against Union Berlin in the Champions League.
For those eager to catch this thrilling match, you're in luck. ITV4 will be broadcasting the game live as part of their agreement with La Liga TV. Coverage begins at 7.30pm on ITV4 and ITVX, with kick-off scheduled for 8pm. Get ready for a clash of titans as Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid battle it out on the pitch.
