Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid competing for a title has been a familiar scene in recent years. This time, the title itself isn’t all that relevant, but both clubs will surely try their very best once they’ve reached the Final.
Madrid will be without their leading scorer Karim Benzema, who stayed in Madrid recovering from a minor injury. Coach Zinedine Zidane replaced him with Luka Jovic for the Semifinal against Valencia and decided to use a five-man midfield which worked brilliantly throughout the entire game. Atletico are a similar opponent who will try to defend and wait to generate counterattacking chances, so it would make sense to use the exact same lineup today.
Their previous meeting in La Liga was fairly balanced, but Real Madrid have improved a lot since that game and Los Blancos should now have enough to beat their neighbors, who have been struggling offensively all season long.
