It’s nearly derbi day. Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid will go toe-to-toe at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday in the first Madrid Derby at the new digs. The hype attached to this matchup is accordingly huge, and we have lots of great content to get you set for it — including this Q&A with our own Jeremy Beren and Managing Madrid’s Om Arvind.
Zinedine Zidane will be without star forward Gareth Bale and goalkeeper Keylor Navas due to injury, but Diego Pablo Simeone has a full squad at his disposal. All three of Koke, Yannick Carrasco and Filipe Luís have been medically cleared for takeoff, but reports from training indicate that the latter will not start with Roma coming to visit in the Champions League next week.
It’s expected that Lucas Hernández will start in Filipe’s place, creating the possibility of a matchup with younger brother Theo. Ángel Correa and Thomas Partey are also set to enter Simeone’s XI for this crucial tilt.
Atlético Madrid 1-1 Real Madrid.
Oblak; Juanfran, Godín, Savić, Lucas; Correa, Gabi, Koke, Saúl; Thomas; Griezmann.
