February 9 Confirmed For Madrid Derby Kick-off

Atletico Madrid will play host to Real Madrid in the last LaLiga derby between the sides this season on February 9, it has been confirmed.

Diego Simeone’s side are proving Barcelona’s main rivals for the title, although the defending champions are five points clear at the top.

Atletico and Madrid, who are fourth in the table, played out a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture in September, with kick-off in next month’s return set for 16.15 local time.

Simeone’s men obtained a 4-2 victory after extra time when the Madrid clubs met in the UEFA Super Cup at the start of the season.
