Who will play up front for Real Madrid against Atletico Derby?

selected out of Rodrygo, Marco Asensio, Isco and Vinicius Jr.

This would be an incredible fluid front-three, and the added man in midfield may aid possession, but you can't imagine it will be efficient enough to break down Diego Simeone's defensive wall.

Asensio may be sacrificed

Asensio has been living through a bizarre period since his return from cruciate ligament damage. His star doesn't shine as bright as it once did, yet Zidane and the club still have total faith in him, as they did when he was anointed the player to take on the mantle from Cristiano Ronaldo.

This season Asensio has been mostly ever-present, but he hasn't actually been that decisive in terms of his production. As such, Zidane may opt to sacrifice him for the Madrid derby, instead selecting the Brazilian pair of Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr, to really test Atleti's defence with natural speed.

Benzema trained with the group today. His chances of playing the derby have increased, however tomorrow will be a key day.
