Real Madrid host Alaves in a match which will kick off early —16:15 CET—. Coach Zinedine Zidane made some rotations for last Wednesday’s away game against Leganes so some key starters like Keylor Navas or Cristiano Ronaldo could be making their return to the starting lineup today, just like Gareth Bale.
Los Blancos are third in the table after earning the three points on the game they had at hand because of the FIFA World Cup and should not look back. They need all momentum they can get ahead of the return leg against Paris Saint-Germain and this home match seems to be a perfect chance for Madrid to keep playing well and show that they’ve found their groove.
Midfielder Dani Ceballos could get an opportunity to redeem himself after being on the field for just 28 seconds last Wednesday as Zidane apologized in the pre-match press conference. The French coach knows that his apology would be much accepted if he actually gives the young player some meaningful minutes.
