Atlético Madrid travel across the city to play local rivals Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu this evening in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey.
Having been knocked out of all European competitions in the autumn, the Copa del Rey remains the only competition that Los Colchoneros can realistically win this season.
Diego Simeone is expected to make a couple of changes to the side that beat Real Valladolid 3-0 over the weekend.
Rodrigo De Paul will most likely take the place of Marcos Llorente, who suffered an injury on Saturday. Stefan Savić is expected to return to the starting XI as well.
Predicted Atlético Madrid lineup against Real Madrid
AS predict that Simeone will use the following starting XI against Real Madrid: Jan Oblak – Nahuel Molina, Stefan Savić, Mario Hermoso, Reinildo Mandava – Rodrigo De Paul, Koke, Thomas Lemar – Ángel Correa, Álvaro Morata, Antoine Griezmann.
The match is set to kick off at 9 pm local time.
