Real Madrid midfielder Lucas Vazquez: Atletico Madrid clashes all about the fans

Real Madrid midfielder Lucas Vazquez says they can face Atletico Madrid in the derby with confidence.

Real Madrid ran out 2-0 winners back in December against Diego Simeone's men, who have since opened up a five point gap on Los Blancos, and have a game in hand as well.

"It's different," Lucas told Codere.

"They are special games that are marked in red on the calendar. We always like to win for ourselves and for the Madridistas.

"We have to play like we did in the match in the first half of the season, attacking and defending together and playing as a team to create favourable scoring situations."
