Real Madrid visit Rayo Vallecano as they try to complete a convincing performance against a manageable side fighting to avoid relegation from the Spanish Primera Division. Zidane’s side has been somewhat disappointing ever since the Frenchman replaced Santiago Solari as the coach and it’s now clear that the club will make changes to the squad next summer.
Zidane decided to start Keylor Navas last Thursday but today Thibaut Courtois might get a chance to prove himself given that most reports suggest that the club will keep him as the starting goalkeeper for next season.
Other players like Ceballos and Marcos Llorente made the squad list even though they were out of the rotation lately. It definitely looks like both players will leave the club this summer, so Madrid could at least give them minutes to increase their potential value. Karim Benzema is not available after picking up a hamstring injury this week and Mariano will be expected to replace him in the lineup.
