ATL vs RM Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

Atletico Madrid are set to host Real Madrid in the 2019-20 season's first El Derbi Madrileno at Wanda Metropolitano this weekend.

Diego Simeone's men made a three-game winning start to the new season, but a return of just one point in two games cost them losing the top spot in the league.

But a comeback win over Juventus in the Champions League and the 0-2 win on the road against RCD Mallorca, should give the 2013-14 champions confidence going into this game.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, are enjoying the view from the top of the table following three consecutive wins in the league. What's satisfying for all the Madridistas is that Madrid won the last two by keeping the clean sheet.

Match Details:

The La Liga match will be played between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano, in Madrid, Spain. The ground has a capacity of 68,900.
The game will start at 12:30 AM (IST), on Sunday, September 29.

Atletico Madrid Team News:

Croatian right-back Sime Vrsaljko remains a long-term injury absentee for Atletico Madrid. The 27-year-old was loaned out to Inter Milan for 2018-19 season, and but his stay was interrupted by a knee injury, making only 13 appearances. His last competitive outing came against England in November last year and it was the game where his knee flared up.

While the hosts will be without striker Alvaro Morata as well after the former Real Madrid received two bookings in just seven minutes against RCD Mallorca.

Diego Simeone set to ring in changes!

Thomas Lemar returns to the squad for this game after missing the last two with an injury and should feature on the left-wing with Koke on the opposite flank.

Saul Niguez is one of the first men on Diego Simeone's playing 11 and will start, but Hector Herrera competes for a place alongside him in the midfield with Thomas Partey.

Morata's absence means Joao Felix will partner Diego Costa up front.

Atletico Madrid squad:

  • Goalkeeper: Oblak, Adan
  • Defenders: Gimenez, Arias, Lodi, Savic, Felipe, Hermoso, Trippier
  • Midfielders: Thomas, Koke, Lemar, Llorente, Herrera, Vitolo
  • Attackers: Correa, Diego Costa, Joao Felix

Atletico Madrid Probable XI:

Jan Oblak (GKK), Kevin Tripper, Stefan Savic, Jose Gimenez, Renan Lodi, Koke, Saul Nuguez, Thomas Partey / Hector Herrera, Thomas Lemar, Joao Felix, Diego Costa

Real Madrid FC Team News:

Ferland Mandy joined Real Madrid's growing injury list after suffering an abductor injury in his left leg during the Sevilla clash. The France international, who joined Madrid from Lyon for €48million in June, has a history of injuries which should be a cause for concern for Zidane.

Marco Asensio meanwhile remains a long-term injury absentee for Madrid.

Marcelo speeds up the recovery:

Marcelo has returned to the light training this week and even completed some parts of the training session with the first team. The 31-year-old suffered a neck injury ahead of the PSG clash in the Champions League. But expect him to miss the game.

Big guns to return!

Zidane made a host of changes to his line-up for the midweek clash against Osasuna.

First-team stars such as Eden Hazard, Raphael Varane, Karim Benzema and James Rodriguez were all benched against Osasuna, with only the latter coming off the bench in the 2nd half. While Gareth Bale was given a complete day off by the manager.

Expect all the aforementioned players to start the game here.

Real Madrid squad:

Thibaut Courtois (GK), Dani Carvajal, Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos, Nacho, Tony Kroos, Casemiro, James Rodriguez, Eden Hazard, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema

Likely to score:

  • For Atletico Madrid: Diego Costa, Joao Felix
  • For Real Madrid: Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Gareth Bale: From the brink of leaving the club following the falling out with boss Zinedine Zidane, Gareth Bale has killed all the doubts with some fine performances this season. The talented Welshman scored a wonderful goal on his last trip to Wanda.

2019-20 League stats:

  • Games: 04
  • Goals: 02
  • Assists: 01

Diego Costa: Ended his barren run in the league this season with a goal in the last game. The 30-year-old is full of tricks and has the ability to get into the opponents' skin whether on the ball or not.

2019-20 League stats:

  • Games: 04
  • Goals: 01
  • Assists: 01

Joao Felix: The young Portuguese made a big-money switch to Atletico this summer and has already one and all with his performances. The trickery winger will pose threats to Madrid.

2019-20 League stats:

  • Games: 06
  • Goals: 02
  • Assists: 01

Karim Benzema: After the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, the former Lyon star has emerged as a main man for Real Madrid. He notched up +20 goals last season in the league and has already racked up five goals this season as well.

2019-20 League stats:

  • Games: 05
  • Goals: 05
  • Assists: 01

Must have from Real Madrid:

Tony Kroos and James Rodriguez: Kroos' quality is well known. The German international can change the game from the deep spaces in the midfield. The fact that he also takes the corners and free-kicks, makes him a very astute addition in any Dream11 team.

While James has been in fine form this season and remains in front of the goal.

And from Atletico Madrid:

Saul Niguez and Koke:

Both the players are world-class and has the ability to win the battle in the midfield against any team.

Suggested combination:

ATL vs RM Dream11 potential winner:
Real Madrid should at least get a draw here.
