Wanda Metropolitano will be prepared as newly-crowned La Liga champions Real Madrid travel to the outskirts of the Spanish capital to take on Atletico Madrid for the second Madrid derby of the season.

While Madrid are expected to use their second-string starting lineup, Atleti will likely use their best possible team. Ahead of the game, Diego Simeone has announced their squad list for the game, featuring a few surprises.

Reinildo Mandava had picked up a knock against Athletic Club and was subbed off at half-time. He has, however, returned in time for this game.

Felipe, Stefan Savic, and Jose Maria Gimenez are the other centre-backs in the squad list. Sime Vrsaljko and Renan Lodi feature as full-backs.

Thomas Lemar and Joao Felix are injured and are expected to miss the rest of the season, and thus, do not feature for this mouth-watering clash.

Simeone’s son, Guiliano Simeone is also part of the squad, alongside Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez, Matheus Cunha, and Angel Correa.

Atletico Madrid have made their final move of the winter transfer window, completing the signing of Matt Doherty from Tottenham Hotspur on a free transfer.

The Irish international has seen little to no minutes in the league this season, and had his contract mutually terminated by Tottenham before he made the switch to Atletico on deadline day.

This comes on the back of a three-way switch. Spurs signed Pedro Porro from Sporting Lisbon, who have reportedly replaced him with Hector Bellerin from Barcelona, while enabling Doherty’s switch to La Liga.

This is only Atletico’s second winter transfer for this window. They had signed Memphis Depay earlier this month from Barcelona on a €3 million 2.5-year deal.

That said, they have managed to offload Joao Felix to Chelsea, Mathus Cunha to Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Marcos Paulo to Sao Paolo. Atletico also managed to register Pablo Barrios to the first-team after his impressive displays in the first-half of the season.
