Make no mistake: This is an extremely important match for Real Madrid. Valencia have not been playing well recently but they are a solid team that could make things difficult for Los Blancos away from the Bernabéu. They already managed to earn a 1-1 draw against FC Barcelona at Mestalla and they will surely play with a lot of intensity to at least prevent Madrid from collecting all three points.
Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.
Defenders: Varane, Pepe, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo and Danilo.
Midfielders: Kroos, James, Bale, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric and Isco.
Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Lucas Vázquez, Benzema and Jesé.
All in all, Benítez will be able to start his best defensive line with Carvajal, Varane, Ramos and Marcelo, something that should definitely help the team. Kroos and Modric should be the ones playing in the midfield with James, Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema upfront unless Benítez decides to make some changes.
