Predicted Atlético Madrid XI vs Real Madrid

Atlético Madrid will host Real Madrid at the Estadio Metropolitano with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.

Los Colchoneros are hoping to bounce back after losing to Bayer Leverkusen midweek in the second round of the Champions League group stage.

Diego Simeone confirmed that Jan Oblak has recovered from his thigh injury that has kept him from playing for the past week and will start against Real Madrid this evening.

Stefan Savić and José María Giménez are sidelined with injuries, while new signing Sergio Reguilón is still recovering from pubalgia.

The Argentine coach is expected to utilise his usual traditional five-man defensive formation that will provide Atléti stability at the back, all the while allowing the team to move the ball out quickly from defence to start a counter attack.

AS predict that Simeone will field the following starting XI against Real Madrid: Jan Oblak – Nahuel Molina, Axel Witsel, Felipe, Reinildo Mandava, Saúl Ñíguez – Ángel Correa, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Koke – Álvaro Morata, João Félix.
