Tough game for Los Blancos.

Real Madrid face the first one of the last 5 games of the season trying to gain some more momentum and put more pressure on Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid.

Zinedine Zidane will make some rotations, with Isco expected to start in Kroos' spot in the midfield and Gareth Bale enjoying some rest as he tries to recover in time for next Tuesday's match in the Champions League against Manchester City.

Casemiro and Modric will almost surely make their return to the starting XI tonight given that they had some time off last Saturday. Lucas Vázquez and not James Rodríguez is expected to start in Bale's spot if the latest reports from Spain are accurate.

Danilo will have a good chance to bounce back from his latest performances as Carvajal will also rotate. The Brazilian defender was jeered by the Bernabéu fans after his performance against Wolfsburg and must improve if he wants to turn those jeers into cheers.
