Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid is one of the most mouth-watering ties that are on offer in La Liga over the course of a campaign, as both sides look to take the bragging rights for the Spanish capital.
Indeed, Los Blancos have been one of the very best teams to have come out of Spain and are considered to be one of the very best football clubs involved in the sport across the world. The Whites of Madrid have won no fewer than 65 domestic titles, including 33 La Liga titles, as well as enjoying unparalleled success in European competition with no fewer than 13 Champions League titles.
Atletico Madrid may not have the same history as their city rivals, however, they have become a genuine threat to Real Madrid over the years as they continue to challenge for titles across all competitions. Los Rojiblancos do, though, have at least 10 La Liga medals to boast about, as well as their own European silverware collection.
Therefore, the Santiago Bernabeu is rather befitting for a match between these two Spanish powerhouses. With a capacity of 81,044, a packed stadium can be expected that is full of passionate fans and an atmosphere that can not be matched by many other fixtures involving two city rivals.
Games between the two sides at Real Madrid’s home do tend to be rather fiercely competitive and tight affairs, with goals sometimes few and far between at times, although that does not generally mean a bad thing.
Results have included a couple of 1-1 draws, 3-0 and 1-0 in recent memory, with Karim Benzema proving the difference at the beginning of 2020 in that year’s meeting.
If there is a game that needs to be experienced in person and at the Santiago Bernabeu, there will not be many that will be able to match this particular encounter. A fierce city rivalry is always an attraction for some, but this one has plenty of history behind it and one that needs to be witnessed in the flesh.
