Madrid derby to take place for the third time in less than a month

Real Madrid, currently pursued by Girona in LaLiga, is seen as a strong contender for the 2024 Laliga title. Coming off a 2-0 win against Getafe, they’ve won 10 of their last 11 games, remaining unbeaten in 15 consecutive La Liga matches at the Bernabeu. Under Carlo Ancelotti’s management, they aim to secure a Champions League knockout stage spot.

Atletico Madrid, despite a recent dip, rebounded with a 2-1 win against Rayo Vallecano. They’ve won their last five domestic games, including a 4-2 victory against Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey. With a newfound attacking effectiveness, evidenced by a 2-0 win over Valencia, Atletico is making a strong statement in both domestic and European competitions under Diego Simeone’s leadership.

Players to watch:

Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid)

Bellingham has emerged as a key figure for Real Madrid, not just for his impressive statistical contributions of 14 goals and three assists but also for his distinct playing style. His dynamic approach on the field, characterized by a combination of agility, vision, and technical finesse, sets him apart.

Bellingham’s ability to read the game, make incisive runs, and execute precise passes has not only bolstered his personal statistics but has also elevated the overall fluidity and effectiveness of Real Madrid’s attacking play.

Possessing remarkable speed and agility, Depay is a dynamic and elusive player, posing a significant challenge for defenders with his direct and skillful running. His exceptional abilities make him a standout talent on the field – a promising and formidable player known for both strength and quickness.

Additionally, he showcases impressive skill, further enhancing his overall impact during matches. He has found his goal-scoring form again, he has now scored two goals in back-to-back games.
