Real Madrid

La Liga leaders Real Madrid look to maintain their hold on the top spot and continue their great form. Real have only lost once this season and they are finally getting over the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. Despite Eden Hazard’s terrible form in his debut season, Karim Benzema has taken his game to another level to carry the team. In their last game, Zinedine Zidane’s men were not on their best but they still managed to squeeze the 1-0 win over Valladolid thanks to Nacho’s 78th-minute winner. In the first derby of the season, Real and Atletico battled it out to a 0-0 draw.

Players to Watch: Karim Benzema (12 goals, 5 assists), Luka Modrid (3 G, 4 A), Toni Kroos (2 G, 4 A), Federico Valverde (2 G, 3 A), Dani Carvajal (1 G, 4 A), Casemiro (3 G, 1 A).

Atletico Madrid

Struggling to put together wins this season, Atletico Madrid are just in fifth place with 36 points in 21 matches. They have only nine wins as they have struggled to score goals following the departure of Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona this summer. Atletico is winless in their last two La Liga games, losing to Eibar two weeks ago followed by a dull 0-0 draw against Leganes at the Wanda Metropolitano. In the draw with Leganes, Atletico had 14 shots but only three were on target. They were the better team but failed to score, a recurring problem for them. But with Champions League football next season on the line, Atletico has no other choice but look for answers within the team for the rest of the season.

Players to Watch: Alvaro Morata (7 G, 1 A), Angel Correa (3 G, 5 A), Saul Niguez (2 G), Kieran Trippier (3 A), Renan Lodi (1 G, 2 A), Koke (1 G, 1 A).
