Madrid’s second and third biggest clubs take each other on at the Vicente Calderon in this evening’s La Liga clash.
The home side have started the season well, picking up an impressive 3-1 win away at Sevilla in the opening match, and battling Barcelona to a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.
Losing Falcao to Monaco doesn’t appear to have weakened Diego Simeone’s side, as Brazilian striker and reported Liverpool and Arsenal target Diego Costa appears to have stepped up to the plate. The powerhouse bagged a brace on the opening day of the season, and will hope to form a lethal partnership with new signing David Villa.
Vallecano also started the La Liga season brilliantly, thrashing newly promoted Elche 3-0, and the team will do well to match their 8th placed finish last season. Vallecano did manage to win seven away matches last term, and have won four of their last five La Liga matches in total.
