Atletico Madrid Vs. Real Madrid, 2012 La Liga: Lineups

Real Madrid are in the midst of a brutal run of games, but they're not doing much rotation. The Madrid Derby is a huge match, and Jose Mourinho will probably rest some of the players that he starts in this game over the weekend. Mesut Özil, Angel Di Maria and Karim Benzema all start even though there was some speculation that they would be rested.

Atletico Madrid Lineup (4-2-3-1): Courtois; Juanfran, Perea, Godín, Filipe; Tiago, Gabi; Arda Turan, Diego, Adrián; Falcao

Real Madrid Lineup (4-2-3-1): Casillas; Arbeloa, Ramos, Pepe, Coentrao; Xabi Alonso, Khedira; Özil, Di María, Cristiano Ronaldo; Benzema

Kickoff is at 4:00 p.m. ET, 10:00 p.m. local from the Vicente Calderon. You can watch the game on GolTV in the USA and Canada and on Sky Sports 2 in the UK.
