Bad news for Rafa Benítez. The Spanish manager has yet another injury to add to Real Madrid's injury report after Pepe wasn't able to complete today's training session with his teammates. The Portuguese defender played the whole match against Athletic Bilbao and nobody could tell that he had physical problems, but Varane and Nacho will have to step their game up against Málaga.

Pepe should be fine soon, and so should Ramos. Real Madrid will visit Atlético's Vicente Calderón next weekend and it will be very important for Real Madrid to have those defender available.

Varane and Nacho will try to keep Málaga scoreless in this Liga season. The Andalusian team have not scored a single goal over the 5 matches played so far and it seems that they could need some more help upfront. Considering that they will visit the Bernabéu, it won't be easy for them to stop that bad streak this Saturday.
