Real Madrid host Huesca after a long FIFA break and coach Zinedine Zidane will be making some rotations as he didn’t include neither Toni Kroos nor Luka Modric in the squad list.
Marcos Llorente is back with the team after recovering from the hamstring injury he picked up in the first leg of the Copa del Rey Semifinals against Barcelona. He could feature in the starting lineup if Zidane decides to give Casemiro some rest, while other midfielders like Dani Ceballos or Fede Valverde could also start because of the absence of Kroos and Modric.
It will be interesting to see who starts upfront. Bale, Benzema and Isco appear to have the edge but Zidane could also decide to give Mariano a chance to play some minutes and prove that he deserves a spot in next year’s team.
All things considered, Real Madrid are the heavy favorites to win the game.
