Just five points separate these two local rivals going into this crucial La Liga clash. Follow our guide below on how to get an Atlético Madrid vs Real Madrid live stream and watch Spanish football online no matter where you are in the world.

With Barcelona finding form in second, just ahead of Real on goal difference, both teams will be out for a win in what now looks like being a pivotal match in this year's title race.

Real won the previous Madrid derby, triumphing 2-0 at Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium back in December last year, with Zinedine Zidane's men unbeaten in the last four encounters with their neighbors.

Diego Simeone's side failed to score in those four games, but Atlético certainly looked sharp in front of goal on Sunday in their 0-2 win away at Villarreal, with Alfonso Pedraza and João Félix on target.

That result ended a three-game run without a win which included a damaging 1-0 defeat by Chelsea in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

They now face a Real Madrid side fresh from a home draw against Real Sociedad, that have been struggling to score as of late and will be hoping striker Karim Benzema will be back from injury for this key game.
