Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Mendy; Casemiro, Valverde, Kroos; Rodrygo, Vinicius, Benzema.
Espanyol starting XI (TBC): Diego López; David López, Bernardo, Calero; Roca, Pipa, Darder, Granero, Pedrosa; Campuzano, Wu Lei
Zidane has decided to start Casemiro. It’s safe to assume that he will try his very best to avoid getting a yellow card, given that he would miss next Sunday’s match against Valencia. Other than that, it will be interesting to see Rodrygo and Vinicius starting together.
