Borussia Dortmund visit the Bernabeu and while they need as many points as they can get to play in the UEFA Europa League, Real Madrid have literally nothing to play for and could be rotating their squad this Wednesday.

Real Madrid: Navas; Achraf, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo; Kovačić, Kroos, Casemiro, Isco; Benzema, Ronaldo

Out: Bale (calf), Carvajal (suspended)

Doubtful: none

Misses next match if booked: none

Dortmund: Bürki; Papastathopoulos, Subotić, Schmelzer; Bartra, Weigl, Şahin, Guerreiro; Yarmolenko, Aubameyang, Pulisić

Out: Toljan (suspended), Durm (hip), Piszczek (knee ligaments), Castro (ankle), Götze (ankle), Philipp (knee), Larsen (knee), Reus (knee), Rode (pubic bone)

Doubtful: none

Misses next match if booked: Weigl

Still, Zidane needs his players to gain some confidence and momentum after their poor recent performances. Los Blancos will host Sevilla this Saturday in what will be a tough match for them, so while they need to be fresh they also must be in good spirits and confident about their chances.
