How Real Madrid could line up against Atletico Madrid

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

Real Madrid will be looking to win the Spanish Super Cup for an 11th time when they take on bitter rivals Atletico Madrid in the final of the competition on Sunday night.

Zinedine Zidane's side booked their spot in the final courtesy of a 3-1 victory over Valencia in the new-look competition's first semi-final on Wednesday.

Atletico, meanwhile, ensured that they would be present in Sunday's affair courtesy of a 3-2 win over Spanish champions Barcelona on Thursday, meaning that Los Blancos have had an extra 24 hours to prepare.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Real Madrid could line up against Diego Simeone's team.

Real Madrid will again be without the services of Marco Asensio and Eden Hazard due to knee and ankle injuries respectively, while Gareth Bale will again miss out through illness.

Zidane's side are also once again expected to be without Karim Benzema due to a hamstring issue, meaning that Luka Jovic should keep his spot as the lone forward.

The summer arrival from Eintracht Frankfurt has only scored once in 16 appearances this season but put in a positive performance against Los Che in the semi-finals.

Los Blancos actually played a 4-3-2-1 formation against Valencia and that could again be the case this weekend, with Luka Modric and Isco playing slightly higher than Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde.

Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes are options should Zidane wish to shuffle his pack, though, while James Rodriguez is also available following a recent knee problem.

The only other real talking point when it comes to team selection is the left-back spot. Both Ferland Mendy and Marcelo featured against Valencia, but the former is once again expected to get the nod from the start.
