Real Madrid took care of business during this Group Stage and that allows them to enjoy this game without needing the three points. This probably means that Rafa Benítez will give some minutes to some of his younger players like Jesé Rodríguez, Lucas Vázquez, Cheryshev, Casemiro or Kovacic. All things considered, these players might not have many more chances to feature in relevant games because of Real's disqualification from the Copa del Rey, so Benítez should embrace this opportunity and give them a chance to impress and make a case for themselves.
Real Madrid will visit Villarreal this next weekend in what could be a difficult game for Los Blancos, so it would make sense to rest some of the starters in order to face The Yellow Submarine with fresh legs. Keylor Navas and Gareth Bale have not been included in the team's squad list but they should be ready to play against Villarreal.
