Here is the latest form and team news from Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid:
Atlético Madrid Form and Team News
Diego Simeone’s side have not been at their brilliant best all season, putting up a weak title defense and now find themselves in a top-four scrap with four matches to go. After racking up four wins in a row in all competitions, Atlético have only been able to manage one win in their last six matches, crashing out of the Champions League in ugly fashion against Manchester City.
They have managed 61 points all season, winning 18, drawing seven, and losing nine matches. They have not won against Real Madrid in a competitive fixture since 2018, a duck they will be hoping to break this weekend. Thomas Lemar and Joao Felix may not feature in Real Madrid’s visit as they are injured.
Real Madrid Form and Team News
Real Madrid followed up their La Liga title celebrations with another big night in Europe, where they came back from two goals down on aggregate to win by six goals to five against Manchester City. Their 4-0 loss against Barcelona in the El Clásico proved to be a minor setback, as the Spanish champions have won every league game since.
They have four wins in their last five matches against Atlético Madrid, further underlining their dominance over their city rivals in recent years. They also have a great away record in the league with six wins, one draw, and one loss in their last eight matches on the road. Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard remain on the sidelines and may not feature against Atlético Madrid.
