All eyes will be on Zinedine Zidane when Deportivo visit the Santiago Bernabéu tonight. The French manager will make his debut as Real Madrid's coach and he will have to make some tough decisions about his lineup. MARCA report today that Varane and James will get the start instead of Pepe and Isco, but Zidane placed both Isco and Pepe with the rest of the starters in yesterday's training session.
Real Madrid Projected XI: Keylor Navas, Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo, Kroos, Modric, Bale, James, Ronaldo, Benzema.
Deportivo Projected XI: Lux, Juanfran, Lopo, Sidnei, Navarro, Mosquera, Bergantiños, Cartabia, Fajr, Luis Alberto, Lucas Pérez.
Dani Carvajal will make his return to the team after missing an extended period of time with the injury he picked up during the last Madrid Derby between Real Madrid and Atlético.
It will be very important for Madrid to stop Lucas Vázquez, who has been the key behind Deportivo's success this year.
