Real Madrid Starting XI: Navas, Carvajal, Pepe, Varane, Marcelo, Kroos, Modric, Isco, Vazquez, Ronaldo, Benzema
Granada Starting XI (To Be Confirmed): Fernández, Lopes, Babín, Lombán, Biraghi, Khrin, Rico, Success, Márquez, Rochina, El-Arabi.
Rafa Benitez has decided to replace Gareth Bale with Lucas Vazquez. The Spanish winger completed a good performance against Espanyol but Jese probably deserved a chance to start as well.
In the end, a game that should have been used to rotate the squad and give the starters some rest has Benzema, Ronaldo, Kroos and Modric starting.
Real Madrid should have more than enough to beat Granada and focus on the tough match against Bilbao next Wednesday. That match will show how good this Real Madrid team is. Meanwhile, Los Blancos have to take care of business against Granada. Expect a comfortable win to collect all three points.
