Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 7 March 2021
Kick-off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano.
This game is possibly the title-decider for this season. The Colchoneros are at the top of the table with a lead of five points, and that too with a game in hand.
Meanwhile, the 13-time European champions are placed third, sharing the same number of points with the second-placed Barcelona.
The result of this fixture will be important to all three of these squads. Should Diego Simeone’s men record a victory this Sunday, it’s probably a wrap for the La Liga. Should they lose though, the race will be thrown wide open.
Likely, we are in for a thriller this weekend at the Wanda.
After an unbelievable run of impressive performances, the Colchoneros seem to be regressing to the mean. They have dropped quite some points in the last few games.
Zinedine Zidane’s men on the other hand, have dropped points this season whenever they had the opportunity to surge forward.
Both teams will be desperate for the win, and both have the talent as well as momentum to go after the title.
Expect a fierce encounter this Sunday, and by the looks of things, anticipate goals from either side of the pitch as well.

Going on, Simeone’s men were unbeaten in 45 of their last 50 overall games, and they had scored two or more goals in eight of their preceding twelve matches. At home, they had also scored two or more goals in six of their last eight appearances at home.
