Real Madrid host fierce rivals Atletico Madrid in what promises to be a tasty atmosphere on Sunday evening.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side are top of LaLiga by five points from second-placed Sevilla, ten points clear of Diego Simeone’s defending champions, although Atletico in fourth have a game in hand.

Real’s star striker Karim Benzema is facing a late fitness test to see if he can play but young Brazilian forward Vinicius Junior has been in magnificent form and will likely pose a massive danger to the visitors.

Host commentator

These games always provide drama!

Just the two changes for Real, with Asensio and Benzema replacing youngsters Rodrygo and Luka Jovic.

Atleti drop Luis Suarez for Matheus Cunha, Thomas Lemar for Angel Correa and Sime Vrsaljko for Felipe.

TEAM NEWS REACTION: ATLETICO MADRID

I’m not really a fan of this Atletico formation. Kondogbia at CB, both wing-backs and Angel Correa are all basically out of position, square pegs in round holes.

Potentially Simeone doesn’t trust Trippier and Renan Lodi at full-back, but – for example – could you not play: Trippier-Felipe-Hermoso-Lodi; De Paul, Koke, Llorente; Correa, Cunha, Griezmann?

Maybe it’s just me.

TEAM NEWS REACTION: REAL MADRID

So Karim Benzema is fit enough to start up front and captain the side. Otherwise, it’s pretty much full strength.

Marco Asensio on the wing is an interesting call!
