Liga: the probable compositions of Real Madrid


This is the high point of this 23rd day of La Liga. While waiting for FC Barcelona, ​​the broad leader of this championship, to travel to Almeria on Sunday evening (6:30 p.m.), Real Madrid welcomes its neighbor Atlético for a meeting that promises to make sparks (kick-off at 6:30 p.m.). There is like a scent of revenge in the air since the last meeting between the two teams does not go back so far. On January 26, the Merengues needed extra time to beat the Colchoneros in the quarter-finals of the King’s Cup.

The semi-final against Barça will also be the next meeting of Casa Blanca next Thursday. And to prepare in the best conditions, nothing better than a success against his rival, which would crown a great week after the historic success at Anfield 5-2. Carlo Ancelotti still has to juggle absences since Ferland Mendy, David Alaba, Rodrygo and even Mariano Diaz are out. In the goal, no surprise, Courtois will start behind a defense at 4.

Militao and Rüdiger will be associated in the hinge, while we should find Carvajal on the right and Nacho on the left, the latter taking advantage of the injured even if he does not like this position. It will probably not be Camavinga who will play on the left side. The former Rennais is expected in the midfield with Modric, back in great shape, and Kroos, who also feels better. With the return of the experienced two, Valverde would play a notch higher on the right side, in support of Benzema and Vinicius.

Opposite, Atlético also needs a performance because they are fighting to stay in the top 4. Oblak will start at kick-off with a 4-man defense made up of Molina and Reinildo on the sides, as well as the duo Savic-Hermoso, the Montenegrin being back from suspension. The young Pablo Barrios, who is slowly making his mark, and Carrasco are expected to animate the sides, surrounding Captain Koke and Saul. Finally in front, Griezmann would pair with Llorente, preferred to Morata. The usual piston would be aligned a notch higher, no doubt to better contain the opponent.
