How Atletico Madrid could line up against Real Madrid

Sports Mole looks at how Atletico Madrid could line up against Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup final.

Atletico Madrid will be looking to lift the Spanish Super Cup for just the third time in their history when they take on Real Madrid in the final of the tournament on Sunday night.

Diego Simeone's side, who qualified for the competition courtesy of their runners-up spot in La Liga last season, recorded a 3-2 win over Barcelona on Thursday in the semi-finals.

The capital giants trailed 2-1 to the Spanish champions heading into the latter stages of the last-four clash but scored twice in the final 10 minutes to book a spot against Los Blancos.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Atletico could line up this weekend.


POSS ATL XI vs. RMA

Out: Diego Costa (neck), Thomas Lemar (muscle), Koke (thigh)
Doubtful: Jose Gimenez (knock)

Atletico will again be without the services of Diego Costa and Thomas Lemar for this weekend's affair, while key midfielder Koke picked up a thigh injury in the clash with Barca and will therefore be unavailable.

The Red and Whites are hopeful that Jose Gimenez will recover from a knock to start, though, while Koke's absence is expected to see Hector Herrera continue in the middle of the park.

It seems unlikely that Simeone will deviate from a 4-4-2 formation, meaning that Alvaro Morata and Joao Felix should again start in attack with support from Angel Correa.

Vitolo and Marcos Llorente are two players pushing to make the starting XI having been involved off the bench on Thursday, although Gimenez for Felipe is expected to be the only alteration.

Stefan Savic has only just recovered from a muscular problem but came through the clash against Ernesto Valverde's side without any issues.
