Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Atletico Madrid

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Super Cup final with Atletico Madrid.

Real Madrid will take on capital rivals Atletico Madrid in the final of the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday night after both clubs came through their respective semi-final ties.

Los Blancos recorded a 3-1 victory over Valencia on Wednesday to progress to the final, and Atletico were confirmed as Zinedine Zidane side's opponents on Thursday courtesy of a 3-2 win over Barcelona.

The two teams played out a goalless draw in La Liga earlier this season, but this will be their first meeting in the Spanish Super Cup since August 2014.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of this weekend's showpiece final in Saudi Arabia.
