Will James start?

This appears to be a very good chance for James Rodríguez to regain some confidence after what arguably was his worst month as a Real Madrid player. The Colombian lost his starting spot to Isco ever since Zidane took over as the coach and his minutes have been discouraging. Gareth Bale picked up a calf injury last week and Zidane will have to choose between James and Jesé to replace the Welshman.

Betis Projected XI: Adán, Molinero, Bruno, Pezzella, Vargas, N'Diaye, Petros, Cejudo, Fabián, Kadir, Castro.

Real Madrid Projected XI: Navas, Carvajal, Pepe, Varane, Marcelo, Isco, Kroos, Modric, James, Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema.

It's true that Zidane decided to introduce Jesé in the game when Bale got injured, but it would be surprising to see the Spanish attacker getting the nod over James this time given how big of a player the Colombian is.

Lineups will be published at 19:30 CET, one hour before the match begins.
