Wed 03 March 2021 | 16:54

Atletico Madrid will host city rivals Real Madrid in a crunch derby clash at the Wanda Metropolitano this weekend.

However, according to a report from

Marca

, it seems that

Joao Felix

may not feature in

Diego Simeone

’s strongest XI side in their game against

Real Madrid

.

Diego Simeone has decided to drop Felix to the bench and will start

Luis Suarez

as the central attacker in front of the former Real Madrid midfielder

Marcos Llorente

, who has been used in the more attacking role this season.

The Portuguese star has struggled for form this season and he has scored only 2 goals in his last 15 games for the club.
