It is time for the first Madrid derby in Spanish top-flight football as arch-rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid lock horns at Wanda Metropolitano. Real Madrid currently lead the Spanish La Liga with 14 points with Atletico Madrid a point behind at third. The encounter thus has a lot of significance given Zinedine Zidane and his men can open up a four-point lead over their city rivals. Atletico Madrid were a bit out of sorts in the last few weeks but returned to winning ways against Mallorca with a 2-0 win. The hosts handed Real Madrid a real spanking in the pre-season and the visitors will have that result on their minds when they come visiting.
Alvaro Morata was sent off against Mallorca and will not be available to play his former side. In his absence, the front two of Joao Felix and the temperamental Diego Costa should be part of the playing eleven. Thomas Lemar has recovered in time from his hamstring injury and should be part of the substitutes while Thomas Partey and Saul Niguez man the Atletico midfield. The defence is led by Stefan Savic along with his partner Jose Maria-Gimenez. The guile and creativity of youngster Joao Felix is one to look out for in terms of the home fans perspective.
Striker Karim Benzema along with Eden Hazard were rested in mid-week for this crunch tie and should start afresh. Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez are the two creative force in the away side’s playing eleven and should test Atletico Madrid. The problem for the Los Blancos is the backline where Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane do not ooze confidence any more. Luka Modric and Isco are both fit again and available for the tie though it is highly unlikely they will start.
