Real Madrid host Brugge in the second game of the Champions League Group Stage. Los Blancos have gained some momentum after their disappointing 3-0 loss in Paris and will need to take care of business tonight.
Coach Zinedine Zidane has decided to give both Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez some rest, which means that the French coach might be thinking of making rotations for this game. Players like Militao, Valverde, Vinicius or Jovic could get a chance to feature in the starting lineup.
Marcelo and Isco have returned to the squad list and Modric could also start after coming off the bench against Atletico last Saturday. Real Madrid need to improve offensively and this match against Brugge looks like the right opportunity to do it. Zidane probably hopes to see a better version of Eden Hazard as well. The Belgian star admitted that he’s struggled a bit lately and could use a good performance against Brugge to improve his confidence.
