Zinedine Zidane is having plenty of time to build a good team and implement his ideas in this roster. After a manageable home match against Deportivo de la Coruña, Sporting Gijón visit the Santiago Bernabéu in what should be yet another comfortable win for Los Blancos at the Santiago Bernabéu.
While it's true that Sporting managed to get a 0-0 draw against Real on the first week of the season, Madrid are a much different team now. First of all, they're healthy. Only Sergio Ramos has not made the list due to injury and that should not be a problem considering that Varane is more than ready to play.
Zidane will probably make some rotations as well. James could start in Isco's place and the same could happen with Danilo, who sat on the bench during last week's 5-0 win against Deportivo. It will be interesting to see if Benzema and Bale keep their momentum going.
