Atleti face Real Madrid at 4 pm CET on Saturday at the Santiago Bernabéu.
- Our team hasn’t lost any of the last six LaLiga games against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu (3W, 3D) – our best ever streak against our city rivals in the competition.
- We’ve faced Real Madrid twice this season and both matches ended 0-0. The first was played at the Wanda Metropolitano in September and the second was the Spanish Super Cup final three weeks ago. It’s the first time that two consecutive official Madrid derbies end in goalless draws.
- Ángel Correa has been involved in four of our last five goals in LaLiga (two goals and two assists). In fact, he has already had a hand in more goals in his 16 games this season (eight) than in the 36 matches he played last season.
- Diego Pablo Simeone is one of the only two coaches to have beaten Zidane twice (2W, 6D, 2L). The other is the current FC Barcelona coach Quique Setién (2W, 2D, 2L).
- Only two of Real Madrid’s last 13 LaLiga goals have been netted by a striker (both by Benzema), and none of the last six (three by midfielders, two by defenders and one own goal).
