Real Madrid play their last La Liga match before heading to Japan to play in the FIFA Club World Cup, and knowing that Deportivo should be a manageable side at the Santiago Bernabeu, coach Zinedine Zidane decided not to include Luka Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema in Real's squad list.

Morata, James and Asensio will be expecting to get some minutes tonight and so will Toni Kroos, who is still trying to get in good shape after missing last month with a foot injury.

Zidane could also rest Lucas Vazquez, who has been playing every game ever since Gareth Bale got injured. Considering that he will likely keep that starting spot until the Welsh star is back, Isco, James and Asensio could play together.

Real Madrid Projected XI: Navas, Danilo, Pepe, Ramos, Nacho, Kroos, Kovacic, Isco, Asensio, James, Morata.

Deportivo Projected XI: Tyton, Juanfran, Albentosa, Sidnei, Navarro, Guilherme, Borges, Gil, Colak, Babel, Andone.
