Real Madrid visit city neighbors Atletico de Madrid in what will be a crucial match for the outcome of this ongoing 2020-2021 La Liga season. Los Blancos are five points behind Atleti in the table and Simeone’s side have a game at hand, so it would be extremely important for Real to take the three points this Sunday.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Vazquez, Varane, Nacho, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Asensio, Vinicius, Benzema.

Atletico de Madrid predicted XI: Oblak, Felipe, Hermoso, Savic, Trippier, Koke, Llorente, Carrasco, Correa, Felix, Suarez.

Benzema is expected to return to the starting lineup after missing the last three games with a minor injury, and coach Zidane will have to make a decision about his right wing. Asensio has been disappointing lately and Rodrygo’s presence could rejuvenate the team and improve the creativity of the offensive line.
