Real Madrid quartet Aurelien Tchouameni (calf), Dani Carvajal (muscle), Eden Danger as well as Lucas Vazquez (both ankle) are all inaccessible for choice as they continue to recoup from injury.

However, Los Blancos have been boosted by the return of Austria international David Alaba, with Ancelotti confirming that the protector "will play" versus Atletico after recouping from a calf bone issue.

Luka Modric as well as Toni Kroos, that both began as substitutes last time out, are expected to be recalled to centre-midfield, while Eduardo Camavinga is readied to complete the midfield 3 as Tchouameni continues his healing from injury.

Marco Asensio started on the right flank against Bilbao, however his area might come under threat from either Federico Valverde or Rodrygo, while Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema are set to keep their locations in attack.

As for Atletico, Stefan Savic as well as Sergio Reguilon are both readily available to return from suspension and also will remain in opinion to start at centre-back as well as left-back respectively.

Nonetheless, central protector Jose Gimenez, that has missed the last 3 matches with a muscle problem, continues to be doubtful as well as is unlikely to be thrown straight back into the very first XI if he is considered fit to return.

Memphis Depay came off the bench against Valladolid to make his Atletico launching, and the Dutchman is in line to start his initial game for the club in assault, with either Griezmann or Morata potentially making way.

. Atletico Madrid feasible beginning lineup:.

We claim: Real Madrid 2-1 Atletico Madrid.
Atletico's last two success will certainly have given Simeone's side a much-needed self-confidence boost heading into Thursday's derby, but whether that will certainly be enough to help them overcome the line versus Actual remains to be seen.

Los Blancos, meanwhile, have actually looked at risk in protection in recent weeks which bodes well for Atletico, however the hosts do have a strong home record and also have controlled this competition throughout the years.

With Ancelotti set to call a strong starting lineup, we can see his Genuine Madrid side edging themselves via to the semi-finals.
