Champions League: Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid Combined XI

For tonight’s Champions League encounter, the Fan Park Crew thought it would be great to pick a combined XI for the Madrid derby between Atletico and Real.

Here is out team:

Goalkeeper: Iker Casillas

He is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and seems to have regained some form.

Right-Back: Dani Carvajal

The Spaniard has come on in leaps and bounds since joining Real, and is one of the fiercest right-backs around.

Centre-Back: Miranda

The Brazilian is in form and become one of the top centre-backs in the world, and with Ramos doubtful for the clash, he makes it into the side.  

Centre-Back: Diego Godin

This position is all about partnerships and if you are playing Miranda, then I think it’s vital that we pick the Argentine. He is also a much better overall player than Pepe.

Left-Back: Marcelo

Marcelo is one of the most consistent left-backs around and deserves his starting spot.

Right Midfield: Koke

The Spaniard is an assist machine and is slowly forcing his way into the new-look Spanish national side.

Centre Midfield: Toni Kroos

Toni Kroos is playing a much deeper role for Madrid, but has done a superb job at running the midfield, while Modric has been out injured.

Centre Midfield: Luka Modric

The Croatian is the work horse and playmaker at Real Madrid, and his impact on the side has been clear since his return from injury.

Left Midfield: Arda Turan

Turan is one of the hard men in Spanish football and has a wonderful cross on him.

Striker: Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo pretty much picks himself, even though he may be blowing hot and cold at times so far this year.

Striker: Karim Benzema

We have gone with Benzema because of his understanding with Ronaldo and his excellent form this campaign.

What do you think of this combined XI?
