The Real Federacion Española de Futbol —RFEF— appointed Jaime Latre for Real Madrid’s next game in La Liga against Espanyol, which will be played next Saturday —13:00 CEST—.

Real Madrid will be expected to take care of business against Espanyol, who have been very poor this season and are in serious danger of being relegated to the Segunda Division.

Coach Zinedine Zidane could decide to make some rotations so that his players are fresh for their next two games away against Valencia and Barcelona, two matches which could be crucial for the Liga title.

Midfielder Casemiro is one yellow card away from being suspended, so he might sit on the bench against Espanyol. Considering how crucial he is for Real Madrid, his presence against Valencia should not be questioned and will need to finish that game without a yellow card if he wants to feature in El Clasico against Barcelona later this month.
