Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid | Spanish LaLiga | Date: Saturday, 29 September 2018 | Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET | Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid)
The current holders of the Champions League will have a difficult job after a 3-0 defeat in Seville. They will face Atlético de Madrid in the capital derby in the most interesting game of the seventh day of the League.
On Wednesday night, Julen Lopetegui’s men suffered their first defeat of the season, unable to take advantage of Barcelona’s streak against Leganés earlier in the day. More than a defeat, Lopetegui felt hurt to see his men easily lose opportunities in a competition of this type against Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
The fact that Los Blancos has conceded three goals is certainly worrisome for the hosts, as they will face the offensive line of Atlético. The visitors began the new season in an unfortunate way, but they have gained confidence recently, winning three consecutive victories in all competitions.

Real Madrid vs. Atlético de Madrid: Prediction
Diego Simeone’s men will enter the derby with more confidence after a good performance in a 3-0 draw against newly promoted Huesca at the Wanda Metropolitan Stadium. Antoine Griezmann, Thomas Party and Koke were on the scoreboard on Tuesday night.
As Atleti seems to have managed to find good strength in the defense, we believe that Real could have difficulties on Saturday night. You can ask Los Blancos not to score two goals or more occasions with a 1.80 score.
You will have the same chances for Atlético de Madrid not to lose at Santiago Bernabéu.
