Jose Rodriguez makes the derby?

Real Madrid youngster Jose Rodriguez is speculated as being included in the squad to face Atletico Madrid this weekend.

The young attacking midfielder has impressed for Los Blancos in their two Copa del Rey games against Alcoyano, netting in the first leg too.

Having been left out of the Real Madrid Castilla squad to face Murcia this weekend, it has led to speculation that he will make the senior cut for the weekend.

That could put the 17-year-old in contention for a first League appearance of his career, in the Madrid derby against Atletico.

Madrid go into the game eight points and a position back on Atleti, and 11 points and two positions back on top-of-the-League Barcelona.
