Real Madrid welcomes their city rivals Atletico Madrid to the Santiago Bernabue with the tension of having not defeating Atletico in seven previous encounter this season. Madrid are without Karim Benzema, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Marcelo and should be a course for concern for them. They are out with injuries except for Marcelo who was suspended. Regardless of this Real Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelloti still in believes he has the best squad in the world to face Atletico and that his squad can replicate what they did in the first half away to Atletico. Whereas Diego Simeone has faith in the steel of his defence even without midfielder Mario Suarez who was ban still believes his defence can hold up. Atletico are doubtful of Mandzukic who has been struggling with ankle injury. Madrid will be casting their hopes heavily on Cristiano Ronaldo to deliver who scored his 50th goal of the season last weekend. Both sides won their weekend matches. Madrid played home 3-1 win over Malaga and Atletico away to Deportivo La Coruna won 2-1
