Why you should back Real Madrid

Jude Bellingham is doing his best to make Los Blancos fans cope with the loss of Karim Benzema, who departed over the summer after 14 seasons with the club to sign with Al-Ittihad of the Saudi Professional League. The 20-year-old English midfielder converted in each of his first four matches with Real Madrid and leads La Liga with five goals. Bellingham also produced the lone goal in Los Blancos' Champions League triumph over Union Berlin.

Real Madrid has enjoyed plenty of success against Atletico during league play of late, losing just once since February 2016. Los Blancos posted a 2-1 victory at Civitas Metropolitano last season as winger Rodrygo and midfielder Federico Valverde scored first-half goals. Both players have tallied once thus far in 2023-24, while striker Joselu has converted in each of the team's last two league matches. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Atletico Madrid

The Red and Whites outscored their opponents 10-1 over their first three contests this season before the loss to Valencia. Striker Alvaro Morata leads the team with three goals, which have him tied for second in La Liga. The 30-year-old, who netted a career-best 15 tallies with Real Madrid in 2016-17, was Atletico Madrid's second-leading scorer last season with 13 goals.

The team is hoping to regain the services of Dutch forward Memphis Depay and midfielder Rodrigo De Paul, both of whom missed Atletico's last match due to injuries. The 29-year-old Depay is tied for second on the club with two goals while De Paul has notched a pair of assists. Midfielder Marcos Llorente also has scored twice in four games after converting just once in 22 matches last season. See which team to pick here.
