Real Madrid host Huesca in what will be an interesting game for Los Blancos after the recent FIFA break. Coach Zinedine Zidane has decided to rest key players like Varane, Kroos and Modric while Los Blancos will be facing Valencia on Wednesday, so the French manager will make some rotations hoping to get the best out of some of his reserves.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Keylor Navas, Odriozola, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Isco, Valverde, Lucas, Bale, Benzema.

Missing players: Courtois, Vinicius (injured), Kroos, Varane, Modric, Carvajal (rest).

Huesca predicted XI: Santamaria, Pulido, Etxeita, Mantovani, Dieguez, Galan, Yangel, Gomez, Rivera, Gallego, Cucho.

This is a good chance for players like Valverde or Isco to prove their worth, while other reserves like Brahim or Llorente could also feature as they try to secure their spot in next year’s team.

Huesca have been very poor this season, so Real Madrid can afford the rotations and still be the heavy favorites to win.
