It's time to make some rotations. Coach Zinedine Zidane has decided to give Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos some rest and the reserves will have to step up tonight against Leganes.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

Defenders: Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo and Danilo.

Midfielders: James, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric, Asensio and Isco.

Forwards: Benzema, Lucas Vázquez, Mariano and Morata.

Leganes could be a tough team to beat away from the Santiago Bernabeu, but if players like Isco or James get a chance, Madrid will most likely dominate the game and get the three points just like it happened when Los Blancos visited Eibar last month.

Zidane is clearly thinking about the Madrid Derby which will be played next Saturday and rightfully so, as Los Blancos will also travel to Munich to face Bayern next Tuesday in what will be a decisive match for Los Blancos' title hopes in Europe.
