Real Madrid’s home game against Granada is a crucial one for Los Blancos, given that they need to keep their current winning streak going if they want to compete for the 2020-2021 Liga title against Atletico de Madrid, who have been very consistent so far this season.
Eden Hazard is back with the team after recovering from his injury, but he will likely come off the bench as he tries to improve his conditioning and form before actually featuring in the starting XI. Vinicius is available as well having recovered from his illness, so he’ll likely be the one starting on the left wing.
On the other hand, Madrid will be without Luka Modric, so Fede Valverde could return to the starting lineup unless coach Zinedine Zidane decides to give Odegaard a chance to play as a central midfielder, something that hasn’t happened so far this season.
Granada have been playing well this season, so Madrid will need to show up and perform if they want to earn the three points.
