Real Madrid have officially published their starting lineup for the Madrid derby against Atletico Madrid (20:45 CET).
Atletico Madrid Starting XI: Oblak, Juanfran, Godín, Savic, Filipe, Gabi, Koke, Carrasco, Saúl, Torres, Griezmann.
Real Madrid Starting XI: Keylor Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Modric, Kovacic, Isco, Bale, Vazquez, Ronaldo.
Sergio Ramos is finally out of the team.
As expected and reported since yesterday, Karim Benzema will start the game on the bench. The French striker isn't ready enough to complete the game and will come on late in the game if Madrid need to change the course of the game.
It will be very important for Real Madrid to match Atletico Madrid's intensity, contrary to what has happened during the last few matches against them at the Vicente Calderon. Los Blancos can take advantage of FC Barcelona's shocking 0-0 home draw against Malaga, so they should come out firing in order to earn all three points.
