Real Madrid and Elche face off in what is a must-win game for Los Blancos. Ancelotti's team want to take profit of Barcelona's loss to Málaga in order to increase their lead in La Liga's table to 4 points.
Elche's Projected XI: Tyton, Suárez, Roco, Lombán, Albácar, Adrián, Pasalic, Rodríguez, Fajr, Ñíguez, Jonatas.
Real Madrid's Projected XI: Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Varane, Marcelo, Kroos, Illarramendi, Isco, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.
Ancelotti still needs to make up his mind about whether to start Silva or Illarramendi in this match. Elche are on a two-game winning streak, and Real Madrid struggled to get a win there last season, so it will be extremely important for Ancelotti's men to have Bale and Isco helping on defense in the 4-4-2 formation Real Madrid display without the ball.
The rest of Ancelotti's squad is pretty much obvious, and it would be surprising to see him making rotations for this away match.
