Simeone knows that with four games left and Real Betis only three points behind, even a draw would be harmful. Atletico need to start the game well and prepare the defenders to appear.

Their two-star names have been largely dropped previously. Karim Benzema is having the best season of his career and is one of the favorites to win the Ballon d’Or. Furthermore, he is largely complemented by Vinicius Jr. with goals and assists. This partnership has been pivotal to Madrid’s success throughout the season and could feature once again at the Wanda Metropolitano.
And Atletico Madrid will miss the suspended Mario Hermoso. Thomas Lemar is still out with a hamstring injury.
Possible line: Oblak. Vrsaljko, Jimenez, Savic, Carrasco; Llorente, Kondogbia, Cook. Korea, Felix, Griezmann
Ancelotti can look to rest some of the junior players who have had to endure tough minutes in recent games.
PROBALE SET: Courtois. Vasquez. Nacho, Militao, Marcelo; Valverde, Casemiro, Ceballos; Asensio, Benzema, Rodrygo
Atletico didn’t have much to cheer about in this campaign. One of the bright spots was the figure of the angel of Korea. He has already scored 11 goals in his best ever season in the league. In addition, Korea also set five goals. The striker has always been with Atletico since the signing and could be the difference against Real Madrid. Real’s defense can be breached as the smaller teams have shown in the past.

Atlético is far stronger than some of its rivals and has the potential to disrupt the champions’ winning streak. Correa will look for an effective link with Joao Felix and Antoine Griezmann in attack. Moreover, Koke can also provide great balls from the midfield for Korea to chase. Its versatility will also be useful in dragging defenders to create spaces behind them.
If Carlo Ancelotti is looking to rest a Vinicius Junior or Benzema, Rodrygo will be the main threat to the scoring. The young Brazilian is in the midst of a purple spot with six goals and one assist in his last six matches in all competitions. Rodrygo showed a calm head blended in with great confidence in his talent.

Real Madrid weren’t shy about throwing in Rodrygo during the crucial moments. Atlético’s defense is sure to be tested by Rodrygo’s speed and movement. The central defenders are not the most nimble and will not be under the illusion of chasing the foot. If Rodrygo manages to cross the defense line or even pull them out of their positions, Real Madrid’s midfielders will have the opportunity to move forward.
The model book prefers the far side. Real Madrid was excellent in Spain. Atletico Madrid will know that winning would be a statement of intent as they strive to reach the Champions League. football Expected to win 2-1 for Los Blancos.
