Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid live score and goal updates from La Liga derby at the Bernabeu

Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui has demanded an instant response from their midweek defeat at Sevilla when his side tackle derby rivals Atletico.

Los Blancos missed the chance to make the most of leaders Barcelona’s unxpected loss at Leganes when they went down 3-0 at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Wednesday night.

There is little chance for the squad – which must do without defender Marcelo for several weeks because of a calf injury – to regroup before Atletico head to the Bernabeu.

Lopetegui, though, is relishing such a key encounter so soon to help set the team back on course.

“Everything goes fast in football, wins and defeats. Everything has to be left behind quickly, because now we have a massive challenge in the shape of a derby against Atletico,” the Real Madrid coach said at a press conference.

“Just as we don’t stop when we win, we’ll not stop at defeats either. We have just enough time to prepare for the next match, which will be a special, a big challenge.”
