Real Madrid's projected lineup against Granada

After resting in the Copa del Rey fixture, most of Ancelotti's key starters will be back in Real Madrid action this Saturday.

Illarramendi, Nacho, Arbeloa, Chicharito and Khedira all had the chance to start Wednesday's match against Cornellà, but that will not happen again on Saturday, when Real Madrid will visit Granada (16:00 CET). Toni Kroos, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Luka Modric and obviously Cristiano Ronaldo will return to Real Madrid's Starting XI in what will be a must-win game for los blancos in order to confirm their good form after the 3-1 win in last week's Clásico.

Real Madrid's Projected lineup: Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo, Kroos, Modric, Isco, James, Ronaldo, Benzema.

It's also true that Real Madrid will host Liverpool FC next Tuesday, but that match is not as crucial as these three points against Granada since Ancelotti's men all but secured the first spot in their Champions League Group with the 0-3 win at Anfield road. A tough stretch of Real Madrid's schedule is already behind, so Real Madrid will just need to play hard and collect all three points before playing the FIFA Club World Cup next December, while hoping for FC Barcelona to drop some points once in a while.
