Video: Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid clash for more than local bragging rights – La Liga News | FOX Sports on MSN


Real Madrid goes into Saturday’s “derbi” with Atletico Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in the unusual position of being, if not scared, then wary of what might happen at the hands of its city neighbors.

The biggest concern at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu is whether Gareth Bale is physically – and mentally – ready to face a tough Atletico side in red-hot form and two points ahead of Madrid in the early Primera Division table.

The $130 million Welsh winger scored on his debut for Madrid in the 2-2 draw at Villarreal on Sept. 14, then played another half hour from the bench at Galatasaray three days later, but has sat out the two games since. via | FOX Sports on MSN
