The odds would appear to be against Real Madrid as they head into a momentous derby match against rivals Atletico Madrid, coming off a crushing 3-0 pounding at the hands of Sevilla on Wednesday, as Sky Sports reported. Their crosstown rivals hold a significant advantage in recent matches, which were played at the legendary home of the three-time European champions. The Madrid derby, which will stream live from the legendary Bernabéu, will highlight not only the La Liga weekend but the action on the pitch as well.
In their last five matches, Atletico have not suffered a defeat, enjoying three victories and two draws, according to Marca.com. At least seven players in the lineup, led by Uruguayan central defender José Giménez, have yet to experience a loss at the Bernabéu.
Real Madrid Coach Julen Lopetegui faces a challenge in ending the losing streak, with Brazilian superstar Marcelo absent due to an injury in the mid-week loss to Sevilla, according to The Express.
He must also help his French striker Karim Benzema figure out how to get back into goal-scoring form, with the Word Cup winner suffering through a four-match dry spell, according to Marca.
