The headline fixture of the upcoming La Liga gameweek is set to play out at the Wanda Metropolitano this Sunday, September 24th.
The matchup in question will see Atletico Madrid act as hosts, in a derby showdown with Real Madrid.
The latter, of course, are currently sitting pretty atop Spain’s top-flight, owing to a flawless record of five wins from five to date.
And with Jude Bellingham having proven himself one of Europe’s most decisive performers once more in the Champions League in midweek, Los Blancos will head into proceedings confident in their chances of securing yet another three points.
Atletico, on the other hand, have endured an altogether more hit-and-miss term to date, with their four La Liga outings having given rise to just seven points.
The matchup will be part of Gameweek 409 on Sorare Football, and 101 Great Goals has broken down the key statistical takeaways ahead of the game.
Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Sorare tips
Down the attacking pecking order at the Metropolitano over the early weeks of the campaign, Angel Correa will be hopeful of being afforded a first start across all competitions in Sunday’s derby. The Argentine has featured off the bench on four occasions thus far, chipping in with a goal and assist along the way. With Atleti fresh off a bruising midweek encounter which saw them concede a morale-sapping last-minute equaliser against Lazio, though, Diego Simeone could well look to change things up, with Correa amongst those lying in wait to take advantage.
Antoine Griezmann, on the other hand, has, as expected, continued to play a pivotal role for Atletico to this point in 2023/24. The French international has been thrown in from the off in all five of the capital giants’ fixtures across all competitions. And though he has only managed a solitary goal, Griezmann’s all-round performances have remained of a typically high standard. A man for the big occasion, expect the 32-year-old to make his presence very much felt against Real.
Rodrigo De Paul
Turning attentions to midfield, Rodrigo De Paul will certainly have his work cut out for him, up against a star-studded visiting engine room on Sunday night. The World Cup winner has not featured in either of Atleti’s last two owing to injury, but has been confirmed as being in contention to return to the fray this weekend by boss Simeone. De Paul impressed in his most recent appearance, notching a Sorare score of 85 after bagging a pair of assists en route to a 7-0 La Liga drubbing of Rayo Vallecano, and will be hopeful of making a similarly decisive impact in the derby.
The star of the show in not only Spain, but across Europe over the early weeks of the new campaign, Jude Bellingham will have identified Atletico as his latest victim-in-waiting in the buildup to Sunday’s crunch clash. The English international, since swapping Borussia Dortmund for Real Madrid in the summer, has incredibly racked up seven direct goal contributions across his first six appearances. The latest came in midweek, when Bellingham struck yet another decisive winner at the death, to put Union Berlin to the sword in the Champions League. Boasting an average of 80 points-per-game in Sorare, the 20-year-old is simply a must-have in your team.
A more under-appreciated member of the attacking ranks at the Santiago Bernabeu, Joselu, nevertheless, is another summer addition to Carlo Ancelotti’s ranks who has already proven himself a shrewd addition. The veteran frontman has been thrown into a prominent role owing to the long-term injury suffered by Vinicius Jr, and for the most part has answered, courtesy of crucial goals against both Getafe and Real Sociedad, as well as a game-winning assist at Celta Vigo. Certainly not a glamorous choice, but one which could pay major dividends once more this weekend.
A 3rd arrival in Spain’s capital ahead of the new season, Fran Garcia has taken full advantage of the enforced absence of Ferland Mendy, to make the left of Real Madrid’s backline his own. The 24-year-old has featured from the off in all five of Los Merengues’ La Liga outings, and is expected to make it six from six in the derby. Not only that, but Garcia is fresh off providing the Real faithful, and Sorare players alike, with a first glimpse of his decisive potential in the final third, after laying on both of the club’s goals in last weekend’s 2-1 victory over Real Sociedad.
