This is a good opportunity for Real Madrid to bounce back from their disappointing 0-0 draw against Málaga at the Santiago Bernabéu. Benítez's men could not score a single goal and lost two points three days after earning the first spot in the Liga BBVA table. The fans will surely expect to see their team beating Malmo comfortably, but that will ultimately depend on whether Real decide to show up or not.
Malmo Starting XI: (To Be Confirmed) Wiland, Tinnerholm, Bengtsson, Árnason, Carvalho, Yotún, Lewicki, Adu, Berget, Djurdjić, Rosenberg.
Real Madrid Starting XI: Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Arbeloa, Kroos, Casemiro, Kovacic, Isco, Ronaldo, Benzema.
Benitez has decided to start Casemiro, Kovacic and Arbeloa so Marcelo and Modric will get a much-needed break. They will be fresher when Los Blancos meet Atletico on Sunday. It will be interesting to see how Casemiro and Kovacic play in the midfield without Modric. The game is on.
