Real Madrid confirmed Zinedine Zidane's first official lineup as Real Madrid's coach.
Real Madrid Starting XI: Navas; Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo; Modric, Kroos, Isco; Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema.
Deportivo Starting XI: Lux, Juanfran, Arribas, Sidnei, F. Navarro, Bergantiños, Mosquera, Cartabia, L.Alberto, Fayçal and Lucas
It will be very important for Real Madrid to stop Lucas Pérez, the player who allowed Deportivo to collect a 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou weeks ago.
On the other hand, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo will try to prove that they can be a better attacking trio under Zinedine Zidane and it will be interesting to see if the French manager has been able to implement new ideas and tactics to maximize the potential of the BBC.
Zidane has decided to start Isco in the midfield, keeping James on the bench. Both players will surely have minutes throughout the rest of the season as they compete for the starting spot, but Isco will have a bigger role than the one he had with Benítez.
