Real Madrid visit Atletico Madrid in a crucial match for Los Blancos, who are coming off two solid wins against Sevilla and Osasuna. Atletico will surely be a tough team to beat at the Wanda Metropolitano but Los Blancos have what it takes to get the win and the three points.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, James, Bale, Hazard, Benzema.

Atletico de Madrid predicted XI: Oblak, Trippier, Savic, Gimenez, Lodi, Koke, Ñiguez, Partey, Lemar, Felix, Costa.

Marcelo will be expected to play even though he completed his first training session since recovering from his injury this Friday. It’s a bit early for him, but Real Madrid need him as Nacho might not be reliable enough to face Atleti. Other than that, most of Madrid’s starters will be fresh and ready to play after getting some valuable rest on their last game against Osasuna. It will be interesting to see if Bale, Hazard and Benzema can hurt Atletico’s defensive line.
