With three wins in six matches, Atletico Madrid have not had the best of starts to the new season, with the 2020 La Liga champions currently dawdling in the seventh position in the league table.

They recently lost to their cross-town rivals Real Madrid, who have maintained a 100% winning record so far. One of the protagonists behind the 2-1 win at Wanda Metropolitano was Luka Modric.

The veteran midfielder provided a solid creative outlet for Real Madrid on two-thirds of the pitch. His experience and leadership were crucial in helping Los Blancos navigate through the Atleti press.

In light of Real Madrid’s victory, Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodrigo de Paul has hailed Luka Modric as the best midfielder in the world. During a Q&A session on Tiktok, the Argentine international said: “Best midfielder in the world? Modrić.”

Modric has indeed emerged as one of the most consistent performers for Real Madrid over the past five years. Even at the age of 37, the Croatian has shown no rapid sign of deterioration, leaving even opposition players such as de Paul mesmerised.

In addition to praising Modric, Rodrigo de Paul also hailed Diego Simeone as the best coach in the world as well, even after Atletico Madrid’s poor start to the campaign and the layer of uncertainty that has been spiralling around the club for the past two years.

Real Madrid will be aiming to continue their recent winning streak when they take on third-placed Real Sociedad in La Liga on Sunday.

Los Blancos have picked up three wins in three games against Villarreal, Athletic Club and Atletico Madrid. Given that Barcelona already have a lead at the top of the table, Carlo Ancelotti’s men cannot afford any slip-up against Sociedad tomorrow.

Ahead of the much-anticipated contest at the Santiago Bernabeu, manager Ancelotti has announced the Real Madrid squad list for the game.

Dani Carvajal, who trained normally today, is still not back on the roster, with Ancelotti already admitting that the Spaniard could return against Valencia next week.

Meanwhile, David Alaba, Aurelien Tchouameni and Lucas Vazquez also remain unavailable while Ferland Mendy misses out after picking up a hamstring injury against Atletico Madrid.

Rodrygo Goes, who also sustained a knock in the game against Atletico, is fully fit and on the squad list for the Real Sociedad encounter. Eden Hazard is also back after missing the last two matches with an injury.

Castilla midfielder Mario Martin, who made his senior debut against the Rojiblancos is retained on the list by Ancelotti.
