Madrid collision for silver
Today at 5:15 pm the big enemies Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid face each other in their derby from the 31st round in the Primera Division. Unlike many other events, this time the two teams have little chance of the title, and in practice they are in a direct dispute about the second place in the final standings. At the moment, the `Duschekschi` hold this position 4 points more than their rival, but the `White Ballet` can seriously break this gap with a possible success today. In recent games, Real has shown that he has unsubscribed the league and has given a break to key players to keep them up for the Champions League battles. This time, however, Zinedine Zidane is unlikely to approach the same way. The first reason is that this is a big match for all Real`s fans and eventual underestimation will not be accepted with good eyes. Moreover, the Royal Club has more than a comfortable 3:0 lead after the first clash with Juventus from the 1/4 final in the Champions League, so it can look a lot more calmly to the rematch.
Athletico has recently played good and weak games. Diego Simeone`s alumni have scored 3 wins and 2 losses in their last 5 games in Primera, eventually eventually losing a chance to fight for the title, losing 12 points to Barcelona. It is now a priority for the `Matus` to keep at least their second place and the team can largely guarantee it with success today. The hosts do not have any serious staffing problems, with only defender Nacho Fernandez being completely ready to play. In Spanish media, Zidane is supposed to give a break to Rafael Varan and Jesse Vaieho to partner Sergio Ramos in the center of defense, but other serious shifts in the squad are unlikely.
Atletico`s situation is far more unpleasant than injured players. Diego Simeone has only four robust defenders, since Philippe Luis, Jose Jimenez and Shime Vursalco are in the infirmary. However, the `Duschekchiite` have the best defense in the championship, having only 14 goals in their goal and supposed that in today`s fight the guests will tightly seal the empty spaces in front of their door and will rely mainly on counterattacks.
