While Real's visit to Córdoba should be a manageable one, Ancelotti's men need to take every away game seriously. Los Blancos already struggled last week against Getafe until Karim Benzema took over the game, proving that every away game can be difficult.
Real Madrid's Projected XI: Casillas, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Kroos, Khedira, James, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.
Ancelotti will likely start Sami Khedira in Isco's spot. He could decide to feature Illarramendi instead, but the Basque midfielder appears to be on his way out of the club and Ancelotti will probably not risk any injuries. Other than that, expect the usual Starting XI with Varane on Pepe's spot, as Ancelotti said during his pre-match press conference that he doesn't need to make rotations right now.
