La Liga: Where to watch the Madrid derby live on May 8, 2022

May 7, 2022 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Champions Real Madrid will look to put a dent in the top four hopes of their city rivals in Sunday's clash at Wanda Metropolitano.

Atletico Madrid and cross-city rivals Real Madrid will lock horns at the Wanda Metropolitano in a juicy Sunday night La Liga affair. Tensions are already on a high as Diego Simeone's side has made it clear that it will ignore the tradition of giving their arch-nemesis a guard of honor in their latest derby clash. Los Blancos wrapped up their league title win with last weekend's 4-0 over Espanyol, dethroning Atletico as the defending champions.

With that out of the way, Los Rojiblancos will look to focus on turning things around in their favor with their Champions League qualification chances hanging in the balance. Despite their impressive start to the season, they have struggled in recent months and could potentially miss out on playing in Europe's elite competition next season. They will go into the upcoming game on the back of a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Athletic Club in their last outing.

So far, Atletico have only been able to win just one of their last six outings across all competitions. Three of the games played within the period ended in losses while two were draws. Their form against Real Madrid in competitive games also leaves room to ponder as they have not managed a single win against the former in the last eight games. The last time Diego Simeone's men won against their city rivals was in the UEFA Super Cup back in 2018.

With that in mind, the Santiago Bernanbeu outfit will look to finish on a high note and potentially ruin the aspirations of their city rivals. Carlo Ancelotti's men, having already clinched the league title, followed up by completing a remarkable remontada against Man City to book a Champions League final date with Liverpool.

In La Liga, they will aim to keep their winning run going when they travel to the Wanda Metropolitano. Ahead of the local derby, the Meregues have won all of their last five league games in succession and have only lost once in their last 14 outings.

Real Madrid, who defeated Atletico Madrid 2-0 at home in the opposite fixture, have the best away record in the league this season, winning 13 and drawing two of their 17 away games. The league winners are also unbeaten in their previous four matches at the Wanda Metropolitano, with three draws and one triumph.
