REASON DOS: IT'S AT THE BERNABEU!
Press play below to take a tour of the iconic 81,000 seater stadium that will host this match!
REASON TRES: ALVARO MORATA!
The ‘Derby specialist!’ Morata has scored in big derbies in Spain, Italy and England. But he has yet to find the net against Real for Atleti…
REASON cuatro: COURTOIS V OBLAK!
Atletico’s stopper Oblak is regarded as one the best to ever grace La Liga, while Courtois is in insane form – he’s conceded just 10 in 17 games!
REASON CINCO: REVENGE!
There was big controversy last time these two met – just three weeks ago! It was the Spanish Super Cup ‘derby’ final. With the game scoreless late in extra-time Alvaro Morata went straight through on goal, only for Real Madrid midfielder Fede Valverde to bring him down at the cost of a red card! Real won the pen shoot-out 4-1, without Morata getting a chance to take a penalty – AWKWARD!
