Real Madrid just published the starting lineup for the upcoming match against Malaga and it features Nacho playing on the right side of Madrid's defensive line.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Navas, Nacho, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Vazquez, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Malaga starting XI: Kameni; Rosales, Luis Muñoz, Mikel, Juankar; Camacho, Recio, P. Fornals, Juanpi, Chory Castro; and Peñaranda.

Zinedine Zidane has given Danilo some rest after his mediocre performance against Celta Vigo last Wednesday. That probably means that the Brazilian defender will not get many more opportunities this season.

Other than that, Zidane has decided to start his best team available, leaving Isco on the bench. The Spanish midfielder didn't play a single minute against Celta even though he was available, but Zidane still chose to give Lucas Vazquez the starting spot in the right wing.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema will try to regain some momentum after their poor performances last week.
