Atletico Madrid hosts Real Madrid in round 26 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, March 7th at Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid)
Atlético is the leader of the current LaLiga season and one of the main favorites for gold medals. Since the rest of the competitors in the fight for the champion’s title are unstable, the Mattress Makers have a real chance to repeat their achievement of the 2013/2014 season. Diego Simeone does not deviate from his principles and philosophy of football. The team does not change the style, and it gives the result so far. However, Atletico made a few misfires in February, which led to a reduction in the gap from the second place to five points. Truth be told, the Mattress Makers one game in hand. The upcoming derby could be the key moment in the fight for the champion’s title this season. If the hosts win, their chances of triumph will greatly increase. We will add that Simeone's men gained a typical away win last weekend (0:2), although Villarreal had an advantage in the game.

The media has been talking about the dismissal of Zidane for some time now, but the French specialist continues to work at the helm of Real Madrid. The unbeaten run of the team in all tournaments lasts six games (five of them were played in the Spanish championship). If Atlético lost 0-1 at home in the Champions League playoffs, Real won away with the same score. But on Monday, March 1, the Whites lost points in LaLiga. As expected, the tough and unyielding rival Real Sociedad gave Galacticos a lot of problems. And Zidane's footballers saved the game only in the 89th minute. Vinicius scored a goal in his 100th match for Real Madrid and thus brought the Royal Club a draw. Since Barcelona have the same number of points earned (53), the intrigue in LaLiga is at the highest level.
We are waiting for a rivalry, and the cost of a mistake is very high. None of the teams will force events, run forward, constantly attack, and play without the midfield. Perhaps now the fate of the champion’s title is being decided. Atletico may get closer to the goal, or the struggle for the first line of the standings will be greatly aggravated. You shouldn't expect super-quality football, because the lineups will not be optimal. Jimenez, Lemar, and Ferreira-Carrasco will not play for the hosts, and the visitors cannot count on Ramos, Carvajal (they will not play for sure), Militao, Hazard, and Benzema (questionable). We will add that head-to-head confrontations usually don’t please the fans with goals scored. Therefore, you shouldn’t wait for goal extravaganza.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
