Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Preview & Team news

Atletico Madrid

Given his team’s significant injuries, Simeone may regret scheduling this match at this time.

Due to injury, Jan Oblak is expected to return after missing Atletico’s last two games. Still, Sergio Reguilon remains sidelined, and Stefan Savic, Jose Maria Gimenez, and Thomas Lemar are questionable. Simeone could benefit from a back three of Axel Witsel, Reinaldo, and Mario Hermoso. Consequently, Yannick Carrasco could be an option at left wing-back, whereas Nahuel Molina is the favorite to start on the right side.

Marcos Llorente, Koke, and Rodrigo De Paul might constitute the Atletico Madrid midfield. Saul Niguez is also an option for Simeone, but the midfielder will likely remain on the bench.

Simeone is anticipated to start Joao Felix and Alvaro Morata up front as he continues to employ a two-striker attack. Antoine Griezmann and Angel Correa continue to be deployed as bench options.

Real Madrid

Ancelotti would be eager to see Benzema return to action as soon as possible, as the Frenchman remains out due to a fitness issue. In his absence, Rodrygo and Vinicius have stepped up to score goals, and the duo will continue to play prominently in the attack.

After missing the last two games, Eder Militao is back in full training. If the Brazilian is healthy, Ancelotti may have difficulty deciding whether to start Militao. If so, Antonio Rudiger could be displaced. Alternatively, the manager might maintain the German’s cooperation with David Alaba.

Luka Modric and Toni Kroos will be able to contribute more in the final third if Aurelien Tchouameni continues to hold the midfield together.

Rodrygo will likely play the false-nine position again, with Vinicius and Valverde flanking the young Brazilian attacker.

As for Real Madrid, both Lucas Vazquez and Karim Benzema are currently sidelined due to injury.

It might be one of the season’s classics, with Atletico’s tenacious performance versus Real Madrid’s fluidity. Nonetheless, the visitors may have an advantage this time due to Simeone’s defensive issues.

In recent games, the indifferent backline has been dubious, alerting Real to the problem. With Vinicius and Rodrygo in peak form, they may be able to defeat Atletico and maintain their perfect record for the season.
