The final stages of the Copa del Rey are here, and those defining moments of the tournament will see Real Madrid and Atlético battling for a spot in the semi-finals on Thursday.

It will be one of the hottest derbies in recent memory, with both sides not entering this match on the best form and trying to show they can still be considered contenders for the final stretch of the season.

Real Madrid make it to this game with two wins in a row, the first one against Villarreal in the cup competition and the other against Athletic in La Liga. Meanwhile, Atlético are unbeaten in their last three games, with a draw against Almería and two consecutive wins, the first one came facing Levante and the other one at home at Valladolid's expense.

The home team enters this match with only two games played in the tournament. Their first match in the competition ended in a one-nil victory over Cacereño, while their Round of 16 clash ended with the aforementioned win against Villarreal.

Meanwhile, Los Colchoneros made it to this stage of the tournament after going through all the possible stages. Their first match saw them eliminate third-tier team Almazán (2-0), and their next clash was sorted out with a 3-1 away win against Arenteiro. Simeone's men would go on to beat Real Oviedo and Levante with similar 2-0 scores to reach the Quarterfinals.

Here are some interesting facts to keep an eye prior to the start of this game.

Real Madrid vs Atlético Madrid - Team news

Real Madrid make it to this clash in high spirits with a convincing win in their previous game and with no more injury concerns following a clotted schedule. The main problem for Ancelotti's men had to do with Vinicius, who was the victim of a vicious racist attack in the wake of the match, which may hinder his availability right from the start.

Atlético enter this game with a good run of games where they have kept two consecutive clean sheets, something that hadn't been usual for them this season. Added to the good news in defense, the team could have Memphis Depay's first match after completing a move away from Barcelona just over a week ago.

Here are the names of unavailable players for each team

Real Madrid - Injured: Eden Hazard, Lucas Vázquez, Aurelién Tchouameni, Dani Carvajal, David Alaba.

Atlético Madrid - Injured: José María Giménez, Yannck Ferreira Carrasco.
