Fede Valverde is back in Madrid’s starting lineup, this time replacing Casemiro as the defensive midfielder. While the Copa del Rey isn’t a priority for Real Madrid, Zidane’s men still have to take care of business this early in the competition, even if it’s without some regulars like Casemiro or Isco.
