Real Madrid visit Huesca trying to stay five points away from Barcelona after Messi and Co. secured an important win against Espanyol this Saturday. Los Blancos are still without Toni Kroos, who is recovering from a small knee injury which should not keep him out of the FIFA Club World Cup.
Other than that, it will be interesting to see if Isco and Asensio get any minutes. They performed very well and showed commitment during the meaningless Copa del Rey match against Melilla and it’s clear that Solari should try to have a role for them given how important they are to the team’s depth.
Huesca have been very poor this season and Madrid should be capable of securing a comfortable win. Still, much of the same was said when Los Blancos faced Eibar two weeks ago and they ended up losing the game 3-0, so the players must prioritize taking the game seriously.
