Madrid derby: Atletico face high flying Real
In La Liga's round 29, Real Madrid will face city rivals Atletico Madrid as Real battles for the title.
This will be Real's second Madrid derby in a week having played Getafe in a midweek fixture.
Real has double the number of points their city rivals have at the moment and a win will increase the gap even further.
Its more than two months now since Real failed to score three or more goals in a league match.
Atletico's away record is far from impressive at the moment and you have to go back to January for the last time Atletico won an away match. That was a 4-nil over Valladolid.
In their previous match this season, Real just managed to edge out Atletico 3-2.
