Real Madrid earned 97 points in the Spanish La Liga last season and it still wasn’t enough to win it, so they know that every game possible has to be won this season to have a chance at knocking Barcelona out of the top stop. One of these huge games comes on Nov. 7th as Real Madrid takes on Atletico Madrid in El Derbi.

The derby is always an interesting and popular game and this edition looks to be another good one. Real Madrid can’t afford to drop any points and they go into this game undefeated and sit at the top of the table with 23 points, just one ahead of Barcelona. Atletico sits in sixth place with 14 points and a win would put them within six points of Real. Barcelona will be away at Getafe earlier on in the day so Real will know exactly what they need to do to stay on top of the table.

Atletico is struggling a bit though as they only one of their four league games in October. Last season’s El Derbi at the Bernabeu was a five-goal thriller with Real coming out on top 3-2. Cristiano Ronaldo is red hot at the moment as he’s scored six goals in the last two league games and 12 in total and will need to be watched closely.

Meanwhile, Atletico’s best striker, Diego Forlan hasn’t really been in his best goal-scoring form since starring for Uruguay at the World Cup in South Africa this summer.  He really needs to start finding the back of the net soon for Atletico to challenge for a top-four spot as he only has three goals so far and just one in his last 11 games.

Real has won four and drawn one of their last five games while Atletico has won two, lost two and drawn one. The odds are greatly with /real as they haven’t lost to Atletico since 1999 and have beaten them 49 times out of their last 73 games at the Bernabeu.

Although Atletico should play well here in the derby I’d be quite surprised if they actually won it. Real should maintain their unbeaten record in the league and come out on top by about 3-1 here.
