The Madrid derby is taking place between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid on Saturday night at 11:00 pm IST. 

The defending LaLiga champions are second on the points table, eight points behind Barcelona. 

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid are fourth on the league table, 10 behind their city rivals. 

These two sides have a fierce history in recent years, with the red side of Madrid broke the dominance of the Los Blancos. 

Atletico went 25 games and over 13 years without beating Real but put an end to that by winning the Copa del Rey final in 2013.

However, Real Madrid got their revenge, beating Atletico in the Champions League 2014 final. 

In 2015, the topsy-turvy history continued, when Atletico thumped Real 4-0 to their former stadium Vicente Calderon purring. 

More recently, the  last time they met, Real Madrid knocked Atletico out of the Copa del Rey via a beautiful Rodrygo goal.
