Real Madrid will have their hands full against Atletico de Madrid tonight. It hasn't been easy for Los Blancos to visit the Vicente Calderon lately and tonight they'll have to do it without key players Casemiro, Pepe and Toni Kroos. Alvaro Morata will also miss the match after picking up a hamstring injury during Spain's friendly in Wembley.
"We're going into it in good shape and we've got players back following the international break. We've got a few problems, as can happen, but we're focused on what we have to do tomorrow. It's an important match, we haven't had long to prepare for it but we're ready. We know Atlético well and it'll be a very tough match," said Zidane during the pre-match press conference.
Karim Benzema will finally be available but the latest reports coming from Spain suggest that he might only play 45 minutes, meaning that Lucas Vazquez could start the game on the right wing with Gareth Bale playing on the left and Cristiano Ronaldo leading the offensive line.
