Zinedine Zidane has selected a 21-man squad for tomorrow’s highly-anticipated Madrid derby against Atlético Madrid, which will take place at the Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium and kicks off at 21:00 CET.
Diego Simeone’s side have made an excellent start to the 2020/21 campaign and Real Madrid must win this game in order to stay in the title race. Los Blancos currently sit on fourth place in LaLiga, six points behind leaders and capital rivals Atlético, who also have a game in hand.
The big news is the return of Fede Valverde, who picked up a serious injury against Valencia in November but has made a quick recovery and is available for selection.
Eden Hazard, Martin Ødegaard, Luka Jović and Mariano Diaz are all out of the squad with their respective problems.
GOALKEEPERS: Thibaut Courtois, Andriy Lunin, Diego Altube.
DEFENDERS: Dani Carvajal, Éder Militão, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Nacho Fernandez, Marcelo, Alvaro Odriozola, Ferland Mendy.
MIDFIELDERS: Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Fede Valverde, Isco.
FORWARDS: Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Lucas Vázquez, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo.
