Make no mistake, this should be a very comfortable game for Real Madrid. Las Palmas are in serious danger of getting relegated this season and Madrid should have more than enough tools to earn a convincing win at the Santiago Bernabéu. Things could be different in the Canary Islands, but Madrid should dominate at home.
This will be Kiko Casilla's official debut for Real Madrid. Keylor Navas picked up a muscle injury recently and Benítez confirmed during yesterday's press conference that the coaching staff don't want to take any risks with his recovery. The Costa Rican should be available soon but Casilla will step in in the meantime.
Karim Benzema, Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale, James and Dani Carvajal are also out. Players like Jesé, Lucas Vázquez and Isco will have a chance to prove their worth while Pepe will make his return to the starting XI after missing more than a month.
