Date: 13 September,Saturday, 2014 year
Start time: 21:00
On Saturday night, at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, Real Madrid face neighbours and La Liga title holders Atletico Madrid in match from 3th round of Primera División.
Real Madrid has the strong start to the new season, the 2: in UEFA Supercup against Sevilla FC, as a result can not yet confirm. In the Super Copa of Spain they can’t succeeded in both games against Atletico with a 1:1 at home and lost 0:1 at away. Real won with 2:0 against newly promoted FC Cordoba on the opening day was not really convincing. Already on the second day put it then at Real Sociedad San Sebastian despite its own 2:0 lead with 2: 4 first defeat, which certainly was not just the absence of the ailing Cristiano Ronaldo.
Whether the Portuguese world footballer, who had to cancel the international matches against Atletico again is remains to be seen. Expected on Tuesday or Wednesday Ronaldo again to resume team activities. No one doubts that we will play against Atletico Madrid this weekend.
Atletico Madrid has put down after winning the Supercopa only a bumpy start to the season. In small derby at Rayo Vallecano came the team of coach Diego Simeone, who currently can only take place in the stands due to a misfire in the Supercup, not a goalless draw and on the second match against promoted succeeded SD Eibar with 2:1. . At Bernabeu Atletico will certainly be of the first minute awake and throw the known qualities such as combat power and will use in the pan to beat the neighbors again a trick.
Real Madrid is not yet in top form and Atletico again provides a very compact and extremely passionate operating unit again this season, it would not be a surprise, would the defending champion from the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu at least take a point.
Real Madrid have won 28 of their last 31 home matches in Primera.
