The highly anticipated Spanish Super Cup semi-final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid is set to take place tonight, and fans all around the world are eagerly waiting for this intense encounter.

Los Blancos have had an outstanding start to the 2023-24 season, with only one defeat so far, which came against their arch-rivals Atletico Madrid. Carlo Ancelotti, who recently renewed his contract with the club until 2026, is eager to win his first trophy of the season, and the team is looking forward to this exciting encounter.

Potential starting XI for Real Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti is expected to make significant changes to his side that won 3-1 against Arandina CF in the Copa Del Rey tier on January 6. Lunin is expected to return in goal with Rudiger-Nacho center back duo.

Mendy, who joined the team in training earlier this week from injury is expected to start ahead of Fran Garcia as the coaching staff sees him as the player who brings defensive balance to the backline.

Tchouameni will return to his preferred position in midfield after playing as a central defender against Mallorca on January 3 due to Nacho’s expulsion in the previous game.

Starting XI: Lunin; Carvajal, Rüdiger, Nacho, Mendy; Valverde, Tchouameni , Kroos, Bellingham; Rodrygo and Vinicius.
