Atletico Madrid currently sit just 3 points behind Real Madrid in third place and have the pleasure of welcoming them on the back of ‘Los Blancos’ 4-1 humiliation in Dortmund.
Jose Mourinho’s will be looking for his side to bounce back in what promises to be an interesting encounter at the Calderon.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been ruled out after picking up a minor knock earlier in the week. He joins Alvaro Arbeloa and Marcelo on the sidelines.
Diego Costa will be able to play for the hosts after his yellow card suspension was overturned.
Definitely featuring will be star man Radamel Falcao. Possibly on his way out, the South American forward will be looking to leave with a bang and the stage is set perfectly for him this weekend.
Real Madrid may recall the likes of Karim Benzema and Angel Di Maria after they missed out a place in the first XI in Dortmund.
The main talking point at Real Madrid this season is the story of Iker Casillas. Controversially dropped by Mourinho, Diego Lopez is likely to keep hold of the clubs for this huge league game.
This game is not to be missed. If Atletico can secure a win they could leapfrog their long time city rivals. As well as being a crucial game this is also a dress rehearsal for the final of the Copa Del Rey.
