Given the absences of Danilo and James Rodríguez, both injured during the FIFA break, guessing Real Madrid's lineup for today's game against Espanyol should not be very difficult. The only reasonable doubt is whether Rafa Varane will keep his spot in the starting lineup or, on the contrary, an already recovered Pepe will take it from him.

Still, Rafa Benítez could have an ace up his sleeve to surprise everyone. Mateo Kovacic or Casemiro could have a chance to start in the midfield, and some of the players that have worked the hardest during this FIFA break, like Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale or even Cristiano Ronaldo might get some rest.

The form below will serve you to help Rafa a bit and choose your favourite lineup to play against Espanyol. Once you are done, you can compare your choice to the one preferred by the majority of users here:
