Real Madrid visit Las Palmas and they will do so resting key starters Sergio Ramos, Carvajal, Marcelo, Kroos and Cristiano Ronaldo, who stayed in Madrid with Isco. Even some men who actually traveled to Gran Canaria might be on the bench to start the game, considering that coach Zidane is clearly thinking about Tuesday’s match against Juventus.
Las Palmas have been struggling quite a lot this season so Real Madrid’s reserves should be capable of taking care of business. Still, this match will not define the team’s season like the one on Tuesday could. Los Blancos know it and only those players who are trying to prove a point will give their 100%, no matter whether they actually admit it or not.
Expect men like Marcos Llorente or Theo getting big minutes tonight. Bale, Asensio and possibly Mayoral could start upfront, depending on what Zidane has in mind for Tuesday’s trip to Turin.
