Real Madrid will clash heads with Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday night as they look to earn a positive result in the Madrid derby. Los Blancos managed to secure an impressive 3-1 win (6-5 on aggregate) over Manchester City in the second leg which ensured their place in the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool later this month. Hence, we can expect the newly crowned La Liga champions to be full of confidence ahead of this clash.

Carlo Ancelotti will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and could make a whole host of changes to rest some of his main first-team stars. Luka Jovic might probably get the nod to lead the line for Los Blancos up top.

4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Atletico Madrid

Defence

Thibaut Courtois will operate in between the sticks for the visitors as he looks to keep a clean sheet in the Madrid derby. David Alaba could partner Jesus Vallejo at the centre of Ancelotti’s defence as they focus on keeping the Atletico attackers quiet throughout the 90 minutes.

Lucas Vazquez could get a chance to impress at right-back while Marcelo looks to use his experience to get the better of the opposition while acting as the left-back.

Nacho will be rested on the bench as he offers cover for the centre-back spots.

Midfield

Ancelotti could opt for a midfield three of Dani Ceballos, Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde for this game on the road. Camavinga produced a brilliant cameo off the bench in midweek, so all eyes will be on him to put in another positive display this weekend.

Luka Modric and Toni Kroos can expect to get a rest on Ancelotti’s bench but might come on to influence the game in the second 45 minutes if required.

Attack

Rodrygo will try to give a good account of himself down the left flank while Marco Asensio looks to create some decent chances for others around him as the right-sided wide player.

Luka Jovic will spearhead the Real Madrid attack in the final third. The Serbian striker needs to have a good game as he is fighting for his future in the Spanish capital.

Karim Benzema should be available for selection on the bench.
