Helguera: “Real Madrid will win the derby”

13 Nov 2016

Showing a confident attitude, former Real Madrid star Ivan Helguera has given his predictions for the Madrid derby that will be played at Estadio Vicente Calderon on November 19.

Los Blancos have failed to beat Atleti in the last four meetings (excluding extra time), but Helguera thinks that Zinedine Zidane’s side will come out on top to this time.

“It is a very special game,” he said. “Atletico are one of the most uncomfortable opponents but you know it is very important for the fans to win. I remember a lot of tension in the lead up to the game.

“I think Real will win this time, they have a good side and are doing well in the league.”

Helguera praised the Atletico of recent years, especially after the arrival of Diego Simeone.

“El Cholo is a great coach, he has a great team and Atletico are one of the best in the world,” Helguera pointed out.

“Simeone has made understanding the philosophy that formerly existed in the club key, and they are a tough team to beat,” he concluded.
