Real Madrid lineup
There were some good news for Real Madrid regarding the players they can use. This week David Alaba was able to train following absences with an injury, so he may be near a return. But it shouldn’t be a surprise if Carlo Ancelotti opts to sit him on this one.
Real Madrid probable lineup: Thibaut Courtois; Nacho, Éder Militão, Antonio Rüdiger, Ferland Mendy; Federico Valverde, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric; Marco Asensio, Karim Benzema, and Vinicius.
Atletico Madrid lineup
The other club from Madrid may have someone back since Jose María Giménez can be part of the team again. He is expected to be sidelined for now, although there is a sure missing piece for Diego Simeone in this game. Marcos Llorente will be out of this one with Rodrigo De Paul as the natural replacement in the midfield.
Atletico Madrid probable lineup:
Jan Oblak; Nahuel Molina, Mario Hermoso, Stefan Savic, Reinildo; De Paul, Koke, Thomas Lemar; Antoine Griezmann, Álvaro Morata, and Ángel Correa.
