La Liga preview: Top of table Madrid derby headlines weekend

Madrid derby

Bengaluru, September 28: After a hectic round of midweek games saw Real Madrid climb to the top of the La Liga standings, Spanish football quickly returns in the Spanish capital bringing both an Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid 'derby' and Barcelona visiting suburban side Getafe.

Real Madrid's short trip to the Wanda Metropolitano on upcoming match evening has an extra edge with Atletico currently sitting second.

It remains very tight towards the top of the La Liga Santander table, after some of the bigger names re-found their form with victories during the midweek action.
