Real Madrid host Las Palmas at the Santiago Bernabeu and coach Zinedine Zidane is expected to make some rotations ahead of the away match against Eibar and the crucial visit to Napoli's San Paolo.
In fact, Casemiro did not make the team's squad list and both Luka Modric and Toni Kroos could get some rest as well. This could be a good opportunity for players like Isco, James and Kovacic to play together and prove that they can control and dominate the tempo of the game in the midfield.
Morata could also get a spot in the starting XI after his crucial game-winning goal against Las Palmas. Benzema has not been scoring much this season and Morata will surely want to show Zidane he is the striker Real Madrid need.
Real Madrid predicted XI: Navas, Carvajal, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo, Kovacic, Isco, James, Bale, Ronaldo, Morata.
Las Palmas predicted XI: Varas, Simon, Aythami, Bigas, Castellano, Mesa, Viera, Gomez, Tana, Boateng, Jese.
