Real Madrid released the starting XI for the Liga BBVA match against Valencia.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Casilla, Danilo, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, James, Benzema, Vazquez, Ronaldo.

Valencia Starting XI:

There are two Liga games to be played and Marid must win out if they want to win the title, as Los Blancos need Atletico and Barcelona both to drop points.

However, it's clear that Madrid's most important game will be played next May 28th against Atletico in the Champions League Final, and that's why Zidane will keep making rotations to keep his squad fresh and ready to go for that huge game.

It's a bit surprising to see Benzema and Casemiro both starting after missing the crucial match against Manchester City last Wednesday. It's clear that they are healthy enough to start as Zidane would not be taking any chances otherwise. James has a good opportunity to prove his worth.
