Derbies between these two sides from the Spanish capital tend to be tight affairs and this weekend could produce another low-scoring encounter

The big game in La Liga this weekend sees Real Madrid make the short trip to the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano to face Atletico in the Madrid derby.

Zinedine Zidane's side come into the clash as league leaders and one of only two unbeaten sides left in the Spanish top flight.

Atletico, meanwhile, are a point behind their cross-city rivals and have not lost at home since Real Madrid's last visit back in February.

Alvaro Morata received two yellow cards in quick succession during Atletico's midweek win over Mallorca, meaning he is suspended for the weekend clash with his former side.

Real Madrid are hoping that Luka Modric can return from injury, while they have concerns at left-back with Marcelo and Ferland Mendy both sidelined for their win over Osasuna on Thursday. 

Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Preview

Matches between these two neighbours tend to be tight affairs and this weekend's clash should be no different.

Los Blancos come into the game having kept back-to-back clean sheets and in their last two league matches they have restricted their opponents to zero shots on target.

Atletico are the most solid side in the division and have kept clean sheets in 11 of their last 15 home La Liga clashes, so opposing a high-scoring game this weekend makes perfect sense with these two sides likely to cancel each other out.
