Defenders Godin, Filipe Luis, Savic, Vrsaljko, Lucas, Juanfran, Gimenez
Midfielders Partey, Koke, Saul, Carrasco, Fernandez, Gaitan, Gabi
Forwards Griezmann, Torres, Correa, Vietto, Gameiro

Diego Simeone has a fully fit squad at his disposal for the derby and he will hope striker Antoine Griezmann can return to form after some disappointing displays of late.

With Diego Costa unable to feature for Atleti until January due to the club's transfer ban, Angel Correa is in line for a start alongside Griezmann on Saturday.

Potential starting XI: Oblak; Juanfran, Godin, Savic, Lucas; Gabi, Partey, Koke, Saul; Correa, Griezmann.

Position Real Madrid players
Goalkeepers Casilla, Luca, Moha
Defenders Vallejo, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Theo, Achraf
Midfielders Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Llorente, Asensio, Isco, Ceballos
Forwards Ronaldo, Benzema, Vazquez, Mayoral

There are still plenty of injury niggles for Zinedine Zidane to contend.

Gareth Bale is still out with a hamstring problem and will play no part against Atletico, while Keylor Navas is back in training, but not yet ready to return and Mateo Kovacic also needs more time to recover from his injury.

Better news sees Dani Carvajal available again after a heart problem, while Luka Modric is also in contention despite being described by Zidane as "off-colour" in training on Thursday.

Potential starting XI: Casilla; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Isco; Ronaldo, Benzema.

GAME PREVIEW


There is more at stake than usual on Saturday as Zidane's men make the trip to Atletico's shiny new home for the first time.

Neither Madrid nor their bitter rivals have been in great form so far. The Merengue have fallen eight points behind Barcelona at the Liga summit and currently share third place with Atletico, sitting ahead currently on goal difference. 

After such a spectacular start to life on the Bernabeu bench Zidane is now feeling the pressure a little, and three points at the Wanda Metropolitano would be more than welcome. 

Real must beware, however, as they will be facing up against another coach who will be desperate for victory. 

Diego Simeone's place as a Colchonero legend is beyond question, but he cannot help but be worried by the slump his team have entered in this, his seventh season in charge. 

While league results have been slightly under-par, Atletico face the added disappointment of an underwhelming Champions League campaign that may end prematurely if they do not get their act together in the final two group games. 

A win over Real could serve as to kick start their spluttering season, meaning Zidane can take absolutely nothing for granted in this must-see derby.
