There's a lot of negative press about Madrid and its crime rate, but the fact of the matter is, hundreds of thousands of residents use the metro every day. Unless you advertise yourself as a tourist, you won't be noticed amongst the thousands and thousands of others who share it with you. If you do advertise yourself as a tourist, you're still unlikely to face any trouble. Just follow basic common sense and odds are good that you'll be safer than in most transit systems around the world.

You'll probably be fine. Just don't look like an obvious tourist so don't take pictures of everything in front of you while there. Like all big cities there are bound to be thieves so keep an eye on your stuff.
