It’s time for the season’s first El Derbi in LaLiga as Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid ready themselves to lock horns. The two teams are all set to play against each other on 18 September 2022, at the Wanda Metropolitano. Los Blancos got off to a perfect start in the domestic competition as they won all of their five games. They will be heading into the fixture on the back of a comfortable 2-0 win over RB Leipzig and will hope to maintain the momentum against their cross-town rivals.
However, it won’t be an easy task for Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Diego Simeone's troops away from home. Atletico Madrid are in the seventh position in the La Liga Standings with 10 points having won three out of their five matches. They registered a convincing 4-1 win over Celta Vigo in their last La Liga outing but fell to Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League in midweek.
