    REAL MADRID FORMATION

    Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has opted for what seems to be a 4-3-3 formation with two changes to the team that drew with Real Sociedad at home on Monday.

    Thibaut Courtois starts in goal with Lucas Vazquez at right-back and Ferland Mendy on the other side while Raphael Varane and Nacho link up at centre-back.

    Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric team up in midfield, as usual.

    Marco Asensio, Rodrygo, who replaces Mariano Diaz, and captain Karim Benzema, who takes Isco's place, lead the attack

    GOOD AFTERNOON FROM MADRID

    Welcome to our live coverage of the crunch LaLiga clash between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.

    Real need to win the Madrid derby if they want to keep their hopes of a successful title defence alive but are still dealing with an injury crisis.

    Star winger Eden Hazard is still unavailable due to a long battle with a muscle injury that has kept him sidelined throughout a great chunk of the season.

    Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane will also be without Mariano Diaz (muscle), Dani Carvajal (muscle) and captain Sergio Ramos (torn meniscus) .

    Star striker Karim Benzema is also dealing with an ankle problem but there is still a high chance he will start against Real's local rivals.

    Atletico manager Diego Simeone is again expected to be without the services of Jose Gimenez due to an adductor injury.

    But Simeone is likely to welcome Yannick Carrasco and England international Kieran Trippier back to his starting line-up.

    Carrasco recently healed from a foot injury whereas ex-Tottenham star Trippier has served a 10-week betting suspension.

    This year's Madrid derby could end up becoming a title decider with Atletico topping the table and Real as well as Barcelona following closely
