Real Madrid visit Atletico’s Estadio Metropolitano for a thrilling Copa del Rey matchup in the Round of 16.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Lunin, Carvajal, Rudiger, Nacho, Mendy, Tchouameni, Kroos, Valverde, Bellingham, Vinicius, Rodrygo.

Atletico de Madrid predicted XI: Oblak, Llorente, Witsel, Gimenez, Hermoso, Lino, Koke, De Paul, Saul, Griezmann, Morata.

The main question surrounding Real Madrid’s lineup is who will play alongside Valverde. Will Ancelotti start Kroos or will Modric get the nod? Could Camavinga get a chance to start in Tchouameni’s spot? All things considered, it looks like Ancelotti will go with Kroos, Tchouameni and Valverde in the midfield, given that he will have a good opportunity to make some rotations when Real Madrid host Almeria this weekend.
