Even after the Madrid derby, Real Madrid still prevails in Spain. The Royal didnt have an easy time, but won the city derby 1-2 at the Wanda Metropolitano. As a result, Real is still the undefeated leader of La Liga after this weekend.
Last season, the dominant Real already won the league title and Champions League cup, and this season Carlo Ancelottis team won all its games so far. Atlético Madrid, which started the season a lot less well, also quickly got into trouble against its fellow townsman.
After half an hour of playing, it was already 0-2 for the visitors. First, Rodrygo scored a goal after a good run, later it was Federico Valverde who also scored from the rebound. The tension quickly seemed to be sucked out of the game, but suddenly Atlético surfaced.

Diego Simeones team showed itself surprisingly dominant and came to several good chances. That also resulted in a goal, from defender and substitute Mario Hermoso. After that, Atlético proceeded to a final offensive, but nothing came of it. That means that Real travels back to the other side of Madrid with a win.
After six rounds of play, the Spanish champion now has the maximum score in the competition. However, the gap with arch-rival and pursuer FC Barcelona is only two points, as the Catalans also win a lot of duels.
