In Saturday’s derby, Madrid plays host to unbeaten LaLiga leaders Atletico at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, with visitors from Diego Simeone enjoying a one-point advantage at the top of the table over Real Sociedad.
In an effort to achieve their first LaLiga title since 2013-14, Zinedine Zidane was asked if Atletico Madrid were favorites.
Neighbours Atletico Madrid are favorites to win this season’s LaLiga, said Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane.
Asked if Atletico are favorites for LaLiga glory, Zidane told on Friday: “Yes, for sure.
“That’s what they’re showing on the pitch. They’re doing things well and competing. They’ve always been competitive and they’re first right now.
“What interests us is what we’re going to do. It’ll be a good game of football and one that fans have marked in the diaries and one that the players want to play.
“What we want in each match is to show what team we are, without thinking about whether we’ll win the league title. We want to win each match. We’re competitive.”
