Vinicius Jr is fouled this time on the left touchline by Llorente. The Brazilian was away before he was brought down. Atletico looks pretty much clueless right now.

After the replay is shown, it is actually an ill-timed challenge by Reinaldo. Hi studs were up and he challenged Rodrygo from behind with full force. The Brazilian needed a bit of treatment but is okay to continue.
Atletico Booking: Reinaldo is shown yellow for his late challenge on Rodrygo. The first yellow card of the game.
Save: Griezmann connects well as he shoots at goal from the edge of the box. Courtois had to dive to his left and get a solid hand to the ball to make the save.

Atletico Madrid has clearly had the better chances in the opening 15 minutes. Real Madrid finding it difficult to break Atletico’s compact defence.
A bright side from the home side- Contrary to Atletico’s usual style, the players are pushing and trying to create attacking chances instead of sitting back and trying to soak pressure. Well, it a derby after all.
Carrasco with a one-on-one with Carvajal. He makes space for himself and shoots low at Courtois’ near-post. The ball rattles the side-netting.
Griezmann with a searching ball inside the box with the intention of finding either Carrasco or Felix inside the box. But both the players had stopped their run and the ball runs out for a goalkick.
Griezmann does well to get possession of the ball. He passes to Felix who tries to get inside the Real box. But Carvajal is there to make the challenge and prevent Felix from doing so.
De Paul floats a wonderful ball inside the box and Felipe rises above to get a looping header towards goal. It was a good header but misses the target by inches and rattles the top of the net. Mendy should have done a better job of putting Felipe under pressure there. It was too easy for the Atletico man.
Fiesty start to the game- Koke takes too much time on the ball and Valverde snatches the ball from him. The Real Madrid midfielder takes a tumble after that and is kicked by the Atletico skipper that does not go down well.
Vinicius looking to make an impact right from the start- he tries to make a piercing run but is stopped by the Atletico defence.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Head-to-Head
Overall, they’ve faced each other 15 times, with Simeone edging the head-to-head with six victories compared to Ancelotti’s five victories and the four draws.
As well as those two elite coaches, so many of the world’s best players will also be involved in this one.
The first Madrid Derby of the 2022/23 season arrives at a crucial moment in the campaign. After five rounds of action, defending La Liga Santander champion Real Madrid has won every game so far and has 15 points to its name, whereas Atlético de Madrid has 10 points after playing out three wins, one draw and one defeat so far.
Diego Simeone knows Los Colchoneros can’t afford to slip any further behind their city rivals, so they’ll give their all when the ball gets rolling at 12:30 am IST on Monday.
Not only will Atleti set out to close the gap to Real Madrid, but it will also hope to be the ones to end Real Madrid’s winning run.
Los Blancos have won the first five fixtures of a new league season for the first time since 2009/10 and have looked unstoppable, picking up where they left off last season.
However, Real Madrid’s last loss came in this very fixture in the last LaLiga Santander season. That was in Matchday 35 last term, when Carlo Ancelotti’s men had already lifted the trophy but lost 1-0 to a Yannick Carrasco penalty at the Cívitas Metropolitano.
The latest edition of Simeone vs Ancelotti
In Diego Simeone and Carlo Ancelotti, the Madrid Derby boasts two of the very best coaches in world football. The Argentine and the Italian have become legends at their respective clubs, partly because of their results in this fixture.
For example, Ancelotti’s 2013/14 Real Madrid side won La Décima, the club’s 10th European Cup, against Atleti, while Simeone’s most impressive Madrid Derby win was the 4-0 over the Italian squad in the 2014/15 LaLiga Santander season.
