Real Madrid: Los Blancos are still without a number of players, including Sergio Ramos, but all eyes will be on Karim Benzema’s participation. The striker, who has 17 goals this season, returned to training this week. Zinedine Zidane’s use of a trio of wingers and defensive midfielders up top will benefit greatly from his presence. Real hasn’t scored more than one goal in any of their last three games coming into this one.

Atletico Madrid: Atletico Madrid bounced back from a 1-0 Champions League loss to Chelsea with a 2-0 victory over Villarreal, but the pressure is on now. Even if they draw, their once secure lead could be eroded as Real Madrid and Barcelona attempt to close the gap. To beat Real and avenge themselves, they must try to reverse the situation from the Chelsea match, in which they saw very little of the ball. When they see plenty of the ball, Atleti is best when they attack patiently, and few chances typically mean quality over quantity.
