Real Madrid played an extremely tough and intense game against Bayern Munich last Tuesday but coach Zinedine Zidane has reportedly decided not to make rotations when his team visits Barcelona this Sunday, even if Los Blancos have nothing to play for in La Liga anymore.
While it’s clear that a match at the Camp Nou should always be taken seriously, there’s no such thing as pride when you will be playing for a third straight Champions League title in just a few weeks. Only Raphael Varane, who is questionable after missing Thursday’s training session, could sit this one out.
That said, Casemiro could return to the starting lineup. Bale might also play upfront alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, who is expected to miss Real’s trip to Sevilla next Wednesday in order to get some rest ahead of the Champions League Final.
Players like Carvajal, Isco or the aforementioned Varane will not be rushed back from their injuries.
