Line-ups: Real Madrid - Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid are without Raphael Varane for the Copa del Rey final, and give a starting place to Raul Albiol at centre-back.

Pepe has been dropped following his comments last weekend defending Iker Casillas, as Los Blancos give Michael Essien, Sergio Ramos and Fabio Coentrao a berth at the back.

Luka Modric starts in place of Angel Di Maria in attack, whilst Karim Benzema leads the line in place of Gonzalo Higuain.

For Atletico Madrid, they have matched Jose Mourinho's men with a 4-2-3-1 - as Radamel Falcao starts up top.

Real Madrid: Diego López; Essien, Ramos, Albiol Coentrao; Khedira, Xabi Alonso; Ronaldo, Ozil, Modric; Benzema

Atletico Madrid: Courtois; Juanfran, Godín, Miranda, Filipe Luis; Gabi, Mario Suarez; Koke, Turan, Diego Costa; Falcao
