The first Madrid derby of the season takes place on Saturday as Atletico host their city rivals Real.
Atletico Madrid secured a much needed win in mid-week with a 2-0 win away at Real Mallorca.
Diego Costa’s strike was doubled by summer signing Joao Felix to send Atletico into third.
Real Madrid have won three in a row and are the early La Liga leaders despite the immense pressure on manager Zinedine Zidane.
The Brazilian duo of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo scored the goals in a comfortable home victory over Osasuna.
