Vicente Calderon, Madrid
Real Madrid Team News & Preview
Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid go head-to-head in the first Madrid derby of the season this weekend.
Los Blancos are sitting at the top of the table, two points ahead of the defending champions Barcelona, and will be looking to extend that gap with a win against their arch rivals.
Real Madrid are in a fantastic run at the moment and will be heading into the derby on the back of 16 unbeaten away games. The Spanish giants have been phenomenal on their travels for about a year now. The only issue for them is the defence, but they have improved lately and recently picked up their first clean sheet in 11 games.
Zidane could be without a number of key players for the trip to Calderon. Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric are expected to return to the first-team, but the likes of Toni Kroos and Alvaro Morata will miss out with long-term injuries. Casemiro and Pepe are back in training, but they are lacking match fitness.
Predicted Real Madrid Starting Lineup (4-3-3): Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Modric, Kovacic, James; Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema
Atlético Madrid Team News & Preview
Atlético Madrid have had a poor start to the season and are sixth in the standings right now.
Diego Simeone‘s men cannot afford to fall further behind and this is a must-win game for them. A win over their bitter rivals would give them some much-needed confidence to get their season back on track.
Los Colchoneros have lost two of their last three league games against Sevilla and Real Sociedad. Despite the dip in form, they have been pretty good at home. Simeone’s men are unbeaten at home in this campaign, but have failed to keep clean sheets in their last two matches at the Vicente Calderon.
Antoine Griezmann is a doubt for the home side, but should be able to start, despite a foot injury. Cerci and Fernandez are the only injury worries for the home side.
Predicted Atlético Madrid Starting Lineup (4-4-2): Oblak; Juanfran, Godin, Savic, Luis; Saul, Koke, Gabi, Carrasco; Griezmann, Gameiro
