Real boss Carlos Ancelotti could be without Sami Khedira and Coentrao, both are injury doubts.

Real have lost three of their last seven matches in all competitions and have not defeated Atleti in their last six attempts.

However, Real did beat Atleti 4-1 in the Champions League final last season.

Turkish international Arda Turan is expected to start against Real.

Turan became the first Turkish born player to win the La Liga as Atleti won their first league title since 1996 last season.
