Madrid will play another piece of the League and take off Atlético rival

The Real Madrid has a golden opportunity to give a (almost) definitive blow to the Atlético de Madrid in the league. The rojiblancos are 10 points behind the whites, therefore, in case of victory of those of Zidane in the Bernabeu the advantage would stretch until 13 … and the extra average. Deadly lunge.

What they are clear within Madrid is that the Athletic, in spite of being in crisis, of downturn and in a terrible moment of form, he is not going to give them anything. Unlike. In fact, if there is a match that can re-launch Simeone's, it is this derby, especially when from an important part of the press the rojiblancos are given little less than goals scored beforehand. That current is the one with ‘fly’ to Zidane because he doesn't want that triumphant message to settle inside the locker room.

As if this were not enough, the Super Cup final is very fresh in the retina of players and fans. There Madrid won on penalties but could not score any goal with that accumulation of midfielders, which, in part, is also expected for this afternoon in the Bernabeu. It is true that Benzema was not there, but the rest looks similar, with Isco, Kroos, Casemiro, Modric Y Valverde with its already famous and saving entrance to Morata.

To all these ingredients must be added the fact that the Madrid He has not won a league derby at home since 2012. It sounds weird but today it has to be the day on which that surprising streak of not beating the neighbor at home lies down. Winning the 2019-20 League is not only achieved in fields such as Valladolid, but also, in the big days, in the great duels. And today is one of them.
