Elche Projected XI: (To Be Confirmed) Tyton, Suárez, Roco, Lombán, Albácar, Adrián, Pasalic, Rodríguez, Fajr, Ñíguez, Jonatas.
Real Madrid Projected XI: Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Varane, Marcelo, Kroos, Silva, Isco, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.
Team news: Sami Khedira, Luka Modric, James Rodríguez, Sergio Ramos and Fàbio Coentrao are out with injuries.
As expected, Ancelotti decides to start his best available lineup in what is a must-win game for his team. Real Madrid could increase their lead in the Liga BBVA table with a win after FC Barcelona lost at home to Málaga this Saturday. Furthermore, Messi and co. will play a tough game against Manchester City this Tuesday, so Real Madrid could take advantage of their tired legs once again next weekend if Granada play well enough at home.
That's why Los Blancos need to give their all to get the three points tonight and secure a one-game advantage in the race for La Liga title.
