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)
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)
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.
