Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

Both coaches have rotated players, opting for experienced options in this massively important Madrid derby.

Diego Simeone has made a couple changes from his team's loss against Osasuna. João Miranda returns on the back line alongside Diego Godín. In the midfield both Adrián and Diego have ben dropped in favor of Raúl García and Arda Turan. David Villa is also not in the lineup, with Diego Costa playing up top as the lone striker.

Madrid have made some changes as well in the defense with the experienced Álvaro Arbeloa coming in at right back and Fabio Coentrão taking over at left back. The midfielder and attacking trio of Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo remains unchanged.
