Real Madrid host Las Palmas and they’ll need more than three points in order to gain some confidence ahead of the Madrid Derby. Los Blancos will also need to put on a convincing performance and that’s precisely why coach Zinedine Zidane should probably trust the youngsters to provide the energy this team so desperately needs.

Players like Marco Asensio, Marcos Llorente, Theo Hernandez or Dani Ceballos could be very useful considering that they will surely play the game with the competitive fire this team has been lacking lately.

Real Madrid’s recommended XI: Casilla, Achraf, Nacho, Ramos, Theo, Llorente, Ceballos, Isco, Asensio, Ronaldo, Benzema.

It’s time for Zidane to see if a 4-3-3 formation with Llorente, Ceballos and Isco in the midfield could work. Ceballos, Asensio and Isco have shown great chemistry when they’ve been given the chance to play and Zidane could need to restore the 4-3-3 system now that the team is struggling.
