Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid preview : Team News and Predicted Lineups

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid meet again in La Liga this weekend, just weeks after facing each other in the Supercopa de España and the Copa del Rey.

Real Madrid will be looking for revenge against Atlético, who are the only team to have beaten them in La Liga and the Copa del Rey this season. A win for Carlo Ancelotti’s side could put them ahead of Diego Simeone’s team in the title race.

Here are the probable lineups for both teams:

Real Madrid: Lunin; Carvajal, Rudiger, Nacho, Mendy; Valverde, Camavinga, Kroos; Bellingham; Rodrygo, Vinicius

Atlético Madrid: Oblak; Witsel, Hermoso, Reinildo; Molina, De Paul, Koke, Saul, Lino; Griezmann, Morata

Real Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti is likely to make a few changes to the team that started against Villarreal in La Liga last weekend.

Thibaut Courtois is still out injured, so Andriy Lunin will continue in goal. Eder Militao is also a doubt, so Nacho could start alongside David Alaba in central defence.

Luka Modric is likely to be rested, with Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni starting in midfield.

Federico Valverde is expected to keep his place on the right wing, with Vinicius Junior on the left. Karim Benzema is likely to start as the central striker.

Atlético Madrid

Diego Simeone is also likely to make a few changes to the team that started against Osasuna in La Liga last weekend.

Stefan Savic is suspended, so Mario Hermoso is likely to start alongside Jose Maria Gimenez in central defence.

Yannick Carrasco is also a doubt, so Reinildo Mandava could start at left-back.

Koke and Rodrigo De Paul are likely to start in central midfield, with Saul Niguez and Thomas Lemar on the wings.

Antoine Griezmann and Matheus Cunha are likely to start up front.

Prediction

This is a tough game to call, but I think Real Madrid will edge it. They have been in better form in recent weeks, and they have the home advantage.

I’m going for a 2-1 win for Real Madrid.
