Real Madrid host Fuenlabrada holding a solid 2-0 lead on aggregate after beating the Segunda Division B side in the first leg of their Copa del Rey tie. Coach Zinedine Zidane will rotate his squad tonight as only 10 players of the first team made the squad list. This will be a good opportunity for young players like Ceballos, Llorente, Theo or Achraf to prove that they can still contribute while Zidane also revealed that Keylor Navas and Mateo Kovacic will also start the game after recovering from their injuries.
Furthermore, it seems that Gareth Bale will get some minutes as he tries to gain some form and be completely ready to play when Los Blancos host Barcelona in late December.
All things considered, this should be a meaningless game but a good chance for Real’s reserves to show Zidane that they deserve some more minutes if the starters keep struggling.
