Carlo Ancelotti Confirms Madrid Squad Starting XI Against Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid will embark on a short trip to take on cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid at the Civitas Metropolitano on Sunday night in La Liga.

And ahead of the pivotal clash that will test Los Blancos’ perfect start to the season, Carlo Ancelotti has named his squad for the trip to Atletico.

As expected, there is no place for Karim Benzema and Lucas Vazquez, who have been ruled out of the contest due to injuries and are expected to return against Osasuna at the international break.

Eder Militao is back into the reckoning after missing the last two matches through injury, although Ancelotti did not give away whether the Brazilian would start against the Rojiblancos or not.

Otherwise, the rest of the squad is filled with the usual suspects, with Thibaut Courtois returning to face his former club while veteran midfielders Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are also part of the roster.

Fringe players such as Jesus Vallejo, Alvaro Odriozola, and Mariano Diaz are also part of the traveling squad for the champions of Spain and Europe.

However, all eyes will be on a certain Vinicius Jr on Sunday at the Civitas Metropolitano after he has found himself at the center of all the news over the past 24 hours, having been subjected to a racist slur by a football agent.
