With Pepe joining Sergio Ramos, Danilo, James Rodríguez and Gareth Bale in the long list of absences, and taking into account that this is the third game in a series of five in fifteen days that will finish at the Vicente Calderón next Sunday, Rafa Benítez must show his wisdom and rotate his players today at the Bernabéu.
The problem is that there are not too many options to choose from. Only five defenders have made it into the squad list, and even Marcos Llorente has been summoned to complete the 19-man list. The midfield line is the only one where some of the important player are likely going to be rested.
