Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid: Where and how to watch?
Atletico and Real battle for the soul of the city
The Madrid Derby is more than just a football match, it is a battle for the soul of the city. Atletico represents the working class, while Real Madrid represents the establishment. The two teams have very different cultures and identities, and this is reflected in the way they play football.
Atletico Madrid have struggled for consistency so far this season, they’ve won two out of their four Laliga matches and faced an unexpected draw against Lazio; Lazio’s goalkeeper scored the equalizing goal in the last minute of added time to end the match with a 1-1 scoreline.
Real Madrid have started their season on a high note, they’ve won all the five matches in the league till now and sit at the top of the table with 15 points. In midweek’s clash against Union Berlin, they dominated and found the back of the net in the dying minutes of match, Real is one of the only teams in Europe’s top five leagues to start the season unbeaten.
