Real Madrid just published their starting lineup for the upcoming home game against Las Palmas —20:45 CET—.
Real Madrid starting XI: Casilla, Nacho, Ramos, Vallejo, Marcelo, Isco, Casemiro, Kroos, Asensio, Ronaldo, Benzema
Las Palmas starting XI (To Be Confirmed): Lizoain, Bigas, Lemos, Castellano, Macedo, Samper, Tana, Gómez, Calleri, Rémy, Vitolo
This is as big of a must-win as Real Madrid will face during the entire season. Los Blancos have dropped two straight games and are 11 points behind Barcelona in the table —with this match at hand—, so losing points at home against yet another smaller club would be catastrophic for their already small title hopes.
This is a new defensive line for Real Madrid and it will be interesting to see if it actually works, even though that Las Palmas should be expected to sit back and counterattack.
Zinedine Zidane will almost certainly have Carvajal, Bale and Navas available after next week’s FIFA break.
