Storylines

Atletico: Atleti bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Chelsea in the Champions League with a strong 2-0 win over Villarreal, but the pressure is on here. Their once comfortable lead could dwindle, even with a draw, as not only Real Madrid but also Barcelona try to chase them down.  To beat Real and get revenge, they have to try and do the opposite of the Chelsea match where they saw very little of the ball. Atleti are better when they are patient in attack, and few chances usually mean quality over quantity when they see enough of the ball. Expect Atletico to play with some patience and keep shape across their backline, but also expect the midfield to not drop very deep defensively.

Real Madrid: Los Blancos are still down a bunch of players like Sergio Ramos, but all eyes will be on whether Karim Benzema plays. The striker returned to training this week and has scored 17 goals so far this season. Having him could be huge help for Zinedine Zidane as he’s regularly gone with a trio of wingers and attacking midfielders up top. Real have failed to score multiple goals in any of their last three matches entering this one.

Prediction

Real Madrid get an early goal on the counter, but Atletico rescue a point thanks to a Luis Suarez penalty kick. Pick: Atletico 1, Real Madrid 1
