Real Madrid vs Espanyol, La Liga 2015: Projected lineups

Will Ancelotti rotate his squad?

Real Madrid can still win the Liga BBVA title, but their options are so small that it could be worthy to give the reserves a chance to start and see if they have what it takes to be in next season's roster. Players like Illarramendi, Lucas Silva, Jesé or Chicharito need to prove themselves as Real Madrid-caliber and these last two games could very well be their last chance to do that. However, Ancelotti will probably try to finish the season in good fashion, so the Italian is not expected to make many rotations.

Espanyol Projected XI: Casilla, Arbilla, González, Moreno, Fuentes, Sánchez, López, Cañas, Alvárez, Sergio García, Caicedo.

Real Madrid Projected XI: Casillas, Carvajal, Varane, Pepe, Marcelo, Kroos, Isco, James, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Ancelotti announced that Keylor Navas could replace Iker Casillas in this one, but he has usually given Keylor the nod at the Bernabéu, so expect Iker Casillas to start.
