The last derby this season, unless the teams don't play each other in UEFA Champions League, which is not very likely considering how badly Putos choked infront of their own fans.
Atlético haven't won a single derby since the 30 October 1999 when a certain Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink played for Los Rojiblancos, the game ended in a 3-1-win on Santiago Bernabéu. The 144th El derbi Madrileño will hopefully end in a similar fashion.
The whole derby-curse has been nothing else than painful for the fans, so the players will hopefully do a good job on the pitch. It's been 14 games without a single win, even though Atlético have been close many times, but it's always been either Casillas or the referees who's screwed things over. We will never forget the injustice when Perea got his goal dissallowed for nothing..
Raúl García is out for this derby as he picked up his fifth yellow card for the season against Barcelona.
It's still not known whether Luis Perea will be able to play in the weekend as he was reported to be out a month. He did however complete the training session today as the team played a internal-game, so we will have to wait until the weekend.
Luis García status is still unknown, he will however probably not be able to play in the weekend.
Johnny Heitinga is becoming a father, the dutch international was absent from the training session today to be with his wife.
