Possible alignment of Real Madrid in the League for the derby against Atlético

With the 35th League in the Bernabéu’s windows and the Champions League final on the horizon 20 days away, the last four days seem like fertile ground for rotations, but they will not be aggressive. Ancelotti is very clear that they are also games to prepare for the match against Liverpool and that the team arrives in Paris with competitive tension. “These games are good for us because we have the option of maintaining the rhythm, the dynamics. It is true that we are not playing for the League, but having rhythm is very important, and respecting the competition, we play against teams that play a lot. The shirt forces us to do our best”, said the coach in the previous one.

Shield/Flag Real Madrid

The madridista coach did announce that, with the title in his pocket, the time has come in goal for Lunin. The rest of the variants in the eleven will be motivated by the losses or the management of minutes that Carletto deem appropriate. in defense, the losses of Alaba and Marcelo postulate Militao and Nacho again as a pair of central defenders and Mendy tirelessly on the left side. The absence of Ceballos in midfield will prevent Ancelotti from fully giving oxygen to the Holy Trinity. Kroos can accompany Camavinga and Valverde in the starting eleven. Finally, in attack, Rodrygo and Asensio can repeat again on the flanks (they already played against Espanyol), this time with Benzema, who is chasing the Pichichi and surpassing Raúl as Madrid’s second all-time top scorer, at the top. Isco and Bale are also low.

for now, the contest of the youth squad seems complicated given the situation of Castilla, which is fighting to get into the playoff for promotion to Second. Raúl’s reserve team visits Villarreal B this Sunday at noon and the regulations do not allow a player to play minutes with two different teams on the same day. Ancelotti has only called, among the 20 players that are part of the call, Luis López, who comes as third goalkeeper.

Possible eleven of Ancelotti for the derby

The possible eleven that Carlo Ancelotti can compose to start at the Wanda Metropolitano is made up of: Lunin; Lucas Vazquez, Militao, Nacho, Mendy; Valverde, Camavinga, Kroos; Asensio, Benzema and Rodrygo. On the bench, for the five available changes, the white coach will have nine men: Courtois, Luis López, Carvajal, Vallejo, Casemiro, Modric, Vinicius, Jovic and Mariano.

Mendy, Modric and Kroos are on notice in the Madrid ranks. If any of them sees the yellow in the derby, they will not be able to play the match against Levante on Thursday 12 (9:30 p.m.) at the Bernabéu.
