Although it may be a short hop across the Spanish capital to the new Estadio Wanda Metropolitano, defending champions Real have lost their last two matches away from home, while Los Rojiblancos (The Red-and-Whites) have tasted defeat just once at home in 10 starts.
Both sides are level on 23 points in third and fourth place respectively, with Real holding the edge on goal differential, but the two cross-city rivals have already slipped eight points adrift of unbeaten leaders Barcelona.
With a misfiring team and a lengthy injury list, manager Zinadine Zidane is under pressure to start turning Los Blancos’ season around.
Their last league meeting ended in a 1-1 draw, but Atletico won the last three clashes prior to that.
