Real Madrid will take on Atletico Madrid as they welcome them to Santiago Bernabeu on Thursday for the Copa Del Rey match-up. Los Blancos come into the match on the back of an impressive 2-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao in their last league outing. On the other hand, Atletico recorded a splendid 3-0 victory over Real Valladolid last weekend. Both of them will be hungry to grab the win and advance further into the competition, so we can expect it to be a fierce contest between the two.

Carlo Ancelotti will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to name a strong starting XI for this encounter. Luka Modric will play from the start in the central areas while Valverde features on the right flank as Marco Asensio drops to the bench.

Defence

Thibaut Courtois will continue to operate in between the sticks for the Spanish club after keeping a clean sheet in his last outing. Eder Militao will resume his defensive partnership with Antonio Rudiger at the heart of Real Madrid’s backline as they look to keep things solid at the back throughout the game.

Nacho Fernandez will keep his place as the right-back while Ferland Mendy hopes to give a good account of himself on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them could get the license to get forward and express themselves in the opponent’s half.

Alvaro Odriozola will be available as he offers cover for the defensive positions from the bench.

Midfield

The midfield trio of Toni Kroos, Eduardo Camamvinga and Luka Modric will anchor the midfield for Real Madrid as they focus on dominating the game at the centre of the park and engineer some clear-cut chances for his teammates to find the back of the net.

Aurelien Tchouameni remains doubtful to recover in time, however, Dani Ceballos will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if required.

Attack

Vinicius Junior will continue in the left wing while Federico Valverde tries to make a difference from the right flank. Karim Benzema will lead the line for the Madrid outfit in the final third. The French striker will fancy his chances of finding the back of the net to get his name on the scoresheet again this midweek.

Rodrygo and Eden Hazard will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to shine in the latter stages of the game if Carlo Ancelotti opts to call upon their services.
