Real Madrid have an opportunity to bring themselves closer to Atletico Madrid in the LaLiga Santander standings when they face their arch rivals, yet it is away from home which may actually give Los Blancos reasons to be optimistic.
They have already lost three matches at the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano, whilst their only away defeat came against Valencia.
Real Madrid are more reliable away from home, and since that dismal display against Los Che, they have gone unbeaten on their travels against Villarreal, Sevilla, Eibar, Elche, Osasuna, Alaves, Huesca and Real Valladolid.
Scoring goals is a problem for Zinedine Zidane‘s charges at home, but away they seem to find the pressure valve unscrewed, with the team having scored 22 of the 43 goals the team have scored this term having come away from home.
This never usually happened when Los Merengues were playing at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, and furthermore the team has added 28 points to their tally on their travels this season, compared to the 25 gained from home matches.
Finally, Real Madrid haven’t actually tasted defeat in any of the Madrid derby matches played at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano since it opened in 2017.
