Real Madrid will play hosts to Atalanta at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night, hoping to pick up a win and proceed into the further stages of the UEFA Champions League. Los Blancos will be heading into the game on the back of a 2-1 win over Elche, whereas the visitors recorded a 3-1 victory against Spezia in the Serie A.

Zinedine Zidane will probably opt for his usual 4-3-3 formation against the Italian outfit; however, the French tactician is expected to make a couple of changes as Luka Modric and Marco Asensio look likely to make their way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

Thibaut Courtois will continue to operate in between the sticks for the hosts. The Belgian international has kept two clean sheets in his last five starts across all competitions and will be looking to add to his tally on Tuesday.

Raphael Varane will form his customary centre-half partnership with Sergio Ramos at the heart of Real Madrid’s backline. The former put up a strong performance in the reverse fixture as he helped his side secure a clean sheet, and he’ll be hoping to repeat more of the same this time.

Lucas Vazquez is a guaranteed starter at the right-back spot, whereas Ferland Mendy will fill in on the other flank as the left-back. The full-backs will be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.

Midfield

Federico Valverde will feature alongside Luka Modric in the holding midfield position, with the latter being assigned with more of a defensive role to shield the home side’s back-four, whereas Toni Kroos will start in the attacking midfield position, thereby completing the midfield trio.

Casemiro remains suspended for the upcoming home encounter.

Attack

Toni Kroos will be accompanied by Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio on either side, playing on the left and right-wing, respectively.

Karim Benzema will lead the line for the hosts against Atalanta. The 33-year-old old striker has been in blistering goal-scoring form lately, and he’ll be hoping to add to the tally when he faces off the Atlanta defence that has kept just clean one sheet in their last six matches across all competitions.
