CONFIRMED: Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid line-ups - Javier Hernandez on bench!

Cristiano Ronaldo Goal

Here is how Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will line up tonight, featuring Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, while Manchester United-owned Javier Hernandez is on the substitutes’ bench.

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will take on each other in the Madrid derby this evening, this time in La Liga.

Hosts Real will head into the match on the back of a shock 4-2 defeat to Real Sociedad away from home before the two-week international break.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side were 2-0 up inside just 11 minutes in San Sebastian, but the Basque outfit launched a stunning comeback to wrap up a 4-2 victory.

The loss came as a massive shock to the Madrid fans, who will expect their side to bounce back in style tonight against their city-rivals Atletico.

It will be far from easy for Los Blancos even at the Santiago Bernabeu, though, as Atletico are still a side capable of getting three points against them.

Despite the departure of the likes of Diego Costa and Filipe Luis (both to Chelsea), Los Rojiblancos are still a strong team who will take on their more illustrious city-rivals without fear.

Atletico are the reigning Spanish champions and beat Real in the Spanish Super Cup over two legs last month.

It promises to be a very entertaining game at the Bernabeu tonight, and here is how the two sides will line up:

Real Madrid XI:

Atletico Madrid XI: Moya; Juanfran, Godin, Miranda, Siqueira; Gabi, Tiago, Koke; Garcia; Jimenez, Mandzukic
