La Liga Game Week 31
Real Madrid vs Atlético Madrid
|Date||:||7 April 2018|
|Kick-off||:||7:30pm (GMT +8)|
|Venue||:||Goodison Park (Liverpool)|
Of all the derby fixtures this week, the Battle of Madrid would be most noteworthy, considering how both teams are still hot on the coat-tails of Barcelona’s throne at the top of La Liga.
Atlético have a finisher in Griezmann, a monster in Costa and the wild card in Hernandez. How could we forget how Hernandez displayed his unparalleled speed, dashing at 34km/h to make a tackle for his side? We already know the depth of Real Madrid and what they are capable off, but Los Blancos have also been guilty of losing the big one in La Liga.
And now they have an excuse, coming off their Champions League quarter-final tie in Turin, but with only nine points separating Atlético – who’ve only lost thrice this La Liga season – from Barca, El Pupas may very well extinguish the jinx and continue to fight for the league summit till the very end.
Prediction: Real Madrid 1-2 Atlético Madrid
