Real Madrid will welcome Atletico Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium this Thursday night as they focus on securing a victory in the Copa del Rey. Los Blancos managed to earn a 2-0 win away at Athletic Bilbao recently. Similarly, Diego Simeone’s men picked up a 3-0 home victory over Real Valladolid last weekend. Hence, we can expect the two teams to go all out in search of the win in this Madrid derby.

Real Madrid Vs Atletico Madrid: Talking Tactics

Carlo Ancelotti will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and could ask his men to dominate the ball and orchestrate enough chances for Real Madrid to win this contest.

Atletico head coach Diego Simeone will opt for a 4-1-4-1 formation and is expected to instruct his players to defend their lines well and grind out a good result away from home.

Key Men

Real Madrid

Karim Benzema will have to carry most of the goal-scoring burden for Los Blancos on the attacking end of the field. The defensive performance of Nacho and Eder Militao could go a long way in determining whether Real Madrid keep a clean sheet in this match.

Ancelotti will rely on Vinicius Junior’s pace to cause problems for the opposition defenders on the left flank.

Atletico Madrid

Antoine Griezmann and Memphis Depay will have to figure out a way to threaten Real Madrid’s goal this Thursday.

Rodrigo De Paul will be given the responsibility to influence the game positively at both ends of the field. Stefan Savic will have to give a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field if Atletico are to have any chance of winning this derby.
