Not only is this a clash about bragging rights in the Spanish capital, but it’s also a key moment in La Liga’s title race: a win for Atletico would further enhance the likelihood that they will claim the glory come the end of the season, but a victory for Real puts the defending champions right back in the hunt. Other La Liga matches to watch out for are; Real Sociedad vs Levante at 6:30pm on Sunday, 7th March, Real Betis vs Deportivo Alaves on Monday, 8th March at 9pm, also on SuperSport LaLiga.
Top Serie A Clashes! Football fans are in for treat because this weekend sees Juventus host Lazio in Turin on Saturday, 6th March at 8:45pm on SuperSport Select 1 (GOtv Channel 33).

Another clash with major ramifications at the top of the table sees Internazionale host Atalanta on Monday, 8th March at 8:45pm on SuperSport Select 1 for the ‘Black and Blue’ derby. Inter struck a major blow in the title race when they won the Milan derby a couple of weeks back, but manager Antonio Conte has warned that their work can be undone quickly if they don’t focus against tough opponents like La Dea.
