Zidane won’t rotate his players for this one, will he?

Real Madrid take on Harry Kane and his Tottenham Hotspur teammates this Tuesday at the Santiago Bernabeu —20:45 CET— in what could be a defining match for the outcome of this Group Stage.

Keylor Navas and Raphael Varane will be at Zidane’s disposal after missing Saturday’s match against Getafe while Luka Modric, Casemiro and Isco are also expected to make the team’s starting lineup.

Real Madrid: Keylor Navas; Nacho, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Modrić, Casemiro, Kroos, Isco; Benzema, Ronaldo.

Out: Bale (calf), Kovačić (adductor), Carvajal (illness)

Tottenham: Lloris; Alderweireld, Sánchez, Vertonghen; Aurier, Winks, Dier, Trippier; Eriksen, Son; Kane.

Out: Alli (suspended), N'Koudou (head), Dembélé (ankle), Wanyama (knee), Davies (illness)

Doubtful: Rose (match fitness)

Spanish wonder kid Marco Asensio will almost surely wait for his chance on the bench in case he’s needed and so will Lucas Vazquez and Dani Ceballos, who could also change the course of the game if Zidane feels like his starters are not taking care of business.
