Manager quotes

Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid): "I'm sure they [Atletico Madrid] are the favourites to win La Liga, they're proving it, they're doing well on the pitch. They've always been a competitive team, today they're top of the league. We know who we face, now we're interested in what we're going to do tomorrow."

Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid): "It's a very beautiful game with fantastic players on both teams. Madrid has been competing with players who remain on top despite their age, competing with young players too, and that has to be admired. They are more than just historic rivals for us. We'll think where we can hurt them."

Predictions

SportsMole's Matt Law: Real Madrid 1-1 Atletico Madrid

"We are finding it very, very difficult to separate the two teams in this match. Atletico will be full of confidence and eyeing all three points, but Simeone would surely be content with a draw and will not want to give much away to Los Blancos. A point apiece would not be the worst result for either side, and we are tipping a stalemate on Saturday night."

90min's Daniel Feliciano: Real Madrid 1-1 Atletico Madrid

"Atletico has found a balance between scoring goals and defending very well this season but Zidane has a knack of pulling out big results in big games. It should be an entertaining game, and one that they may see the shares spoiled come full time."

e360hubs writer Okeke George: Real Madrid 1-2 Atletico Madrid

"Considering both team form ATM has the upper hand to come out ontop also seeing that they have conceded less compared to Real Madrid ."
