This "Derby" has a greater significance for Atletico than Real because the latter places more importance playing against its historical arch rivel Barça & because they come into tonight´s match undefeated & current Liga leaders, while Atletico hasn´t defeated its city neighbour & "spiritual rival" in the last 11 years.

The equalizer after Morientes scored first for Real
Since this day Atletico has suffered draws & more defeats that have wounded the Atletico pride & exaggerated the "inferiority" complex. Hopefully tonight Atletico can regain some pride & lift the local spirits of their fans with a victory.
Starting 11 line - ups:
(only team 100% confirmed)
(still to be confirmed - maybe changes).
