The team began preparing today for El Derbi Madrileño aka our big crosstown rivalry/Sernando reunion.
2 out of 3 Pips were called up (Martin Odegaard and Marcos Llorente) while Benz, Lukita, Isco & Dani trained indoors. G-Money and Pepe continued their recovery but came out to do some running.
Seeing as how Atleti are one point above us in the table, this one means alot. I always have trepidation going to into these derbies. Incredibly stressful. Like a mini-Clasico and sometimes, even worse – remember back in the days of Costa where they used to maim us at every opportunity?
Thoughts going into this?
