Real Madrid Team News
This weekend, Real Madrid will be without Mariano Diaz, Rodrygo, Federico Valverde, and Dani Ceballos once again, although Gareth Bale could make his return from injury.
Head coach Carlo Ancelotti may opt to name the same starting lineup as against Shakhtar, with Lucas Vazquez likely to start on the right flank ahead of Marco Asensio and Eden Hazard.
In the final third of the field, Benzema and Vinicius are certain starters, while Luka Modric and Toni Kroos should continue alongside Casemiro in the middle of the park due to Valverde’s absence.
Rayo Vallecano Team News
Martin Merquelanz is still out with a knee injury for Rayo, but Esteban Saveljich should be able to play in the middle of the defence after overcoming a minor ailment.
The away side’s XI is unlikely to include any significant shocks, with Alvaro Garcia and Isi Palazon in the wide areas, both supporting Falcao in the centre-forward position, in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
However, there could be a change in the number 10 position, with Oscar Trejo perhaps replacing Unai Lopez, and Ismaila Ciss joining Santiago Comesana in the midfield.
Real Madrid XI:
Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Kroos, Casemiro, Modric; Vazquez, Benzema, Vinicius
Rayo Vallecano XI:
Dimitrievski; Balliu, Saveljich, Catena, F Garcia; Ciss, Comesana; Palazon, Trejo, A Garcia; Falcao
