Atletico de Madrid don’t tend to perform particularly well against city rivals Real Madrid, last defeating them in La Liga in 1999, but Diego Simeone’s team did win their most recent encounter, a 2-1 triumph in last season’s Copa del Rey final.
Carlo Ancelotti will attempt to maintain Los Meringues impressive record in the Madrid derby by likely unleashing record signing Gareth Bale from the outset.
Bale scored on his debut, but has not yet reached full fitness after missing all of preseason for his new team, and is still finding his feet in Spain.
Cristiano Ronaldo will remain Real Madrid’s main threat in front of goal, alongside Karim Benzema and brilliant young Spanish playmaker Isco.
Atletico Madrid are a different proposition to previous years though, and with a strikeforce including Diego Costa and former FC Barcelona forward David Villa they will certainly threaten.
Ancelotti has yet to truly convince as Real Madrid boss, and this will be his biggest test of the season so far.
