Real Madrid's reserves have been taking care of business and playing good football for quite some time now, so coach Zinedine Zidane is expected to use them tonight as the starters get ready for the return leg against Atletico Madrid next Wednesday.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Casilla, Danilo, Ramos, Nacho, Coentrao, Kovacic, Isco, James, Vazquez, Asensio, Morata.

Granada predicted XI: Ochoa, Foulquier, Hongla, Ingason, Silva, Angban, Uche, Cuenca, Pereira, Malle, Ramos.

Granada confirmed their presence in the Spanish Segunda Division last weekend so they have nothing to play for other than pride. This could be a trap game as the Andalusian side might have a strong support from their home fans as they bid farewell to La Liga, so Real's reserves will need to play with intensity if they want to dismantle Granada's efforts.

Real Madrid will host Sevilla next weekend in what should be the toughest game they have on their remaining schedule, so this match in Granada is a must win for Los Blancos.
