Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Live Stream: How to Watch, Team News, Prediction, Odds, Head to Head And More

Real Madrid will play Atletico Madrid on Sunday 12th December.

Real Madrid are preparing for the arrival of city rivals Atletico Madrid for yet another El Derbi Madrileño.

The Galacticos, who are currently sitting pretty at the top of the La Liga standings will lock horns with their red and white rivals ten points behind them in fourth.

Carlo Ancelotti's side have been on fire so far during the 2021/22 campaign, winning all of their last five games in all competitions and Karim Benzema leads the goalscoring charts with 12 to his name.

Atleti managed to bounce back from their disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Real Mallorca with a 3-1 away win at FC Porto which saw them advance to the Last 16 of the Champions League

Diego Simeone will be hoping his side can kick on from their morale-boosting win on the continent by frustrating Real, who are situated just eight miles apart in the Spanish capital. 


Date

Santiago Bernabeu

Real Madrid will face off against Atletico Madrid on Sunday 12th December 2021 with kick-off at 8pm GMT.

Team News

Carlo Ancelotti

Real will be confident they can string a 10th straight victory and have the attacking prowess to do just that.

It will be a race against time for Benzema to make the squad after missing his side's 3-1 win over Inter in midweek. David Alaba is likely to feature once more despite being injured and those are the only concerns that Ancelotti currently has at the time of writing.

Diego Simeone

The only concern for Simeone, as far as Atleti are concerned, is that Luis Suarez could miss El Derbi Madrileño.

Other than that, the Argentinian tactician should have a full squad to choose from

Predicted Real Madrid XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy, Modric, Casemiro, Kroos, Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr, Benzema.

Predicted Atletico Madrid XI: Oblak, Savic, Felipe, Hermoso, Vrsaljko, Llorente, Koke, Lemar, Carrasco, Correa, Griezmann.


Prediction

If Real Madrid are on fire in the attacking department, then it should be a victory for the hosts considering how prolific their forward line has been this season.

Atleti will need to get through a good portion of the game without conceding, which will give them the best possible chance of getting anything out of the game.

Prediction: Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid.
