Real Madrid Vs. Atlético Madrid, Liga 2013-2014: Lineups

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

Illarramendi starts, Bale and Khedira wait on the bench.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Diego López, Arbeloa, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrao, Illarramendi, Isco, Khedira, Cristiano Ronaldo, Di María, Benzema

Atlético Madrid Starting XI: Courtois, Juanfran, Miranda, Godín, Filipe Luis, Gabi, Tiago, Koke, Arda, Diego Costa, Villa

Ancelotti has decided to keep Bale and Khedira on the bench, deploying what might be his best starting XI. Simeone doesn't have any surprises on his pocket and has started the same XI everybody expected he was going to start. Real Madrid will need to be careful with Arda Turan, Villa and Diego Costa on the counterattacks, and it will also be interesting to see where Khedira and Illarramendi play.

Update: Khedira starts in Modric's place.
