Real Madrid and Valladolid face off this Wednesday at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano —21:00 CEST— in what will be the third game of the 2020-2021 season for Los Blancos. Madrid will be without Toni Kroos, who picked up a muscle injury against Betis last Sunday, so Fede Valverde seems set to get more minutes as a starter, this time alongside Modric and Casemiro.

Asensio and Hazard are ready to play but will likely come off the bench, given that they probably need to improve their conditioning before they can be on the field for 90 minutes.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Mendy, Casemiro, Valverde, Modric, Vinicius, Odegaard, Benzema.

Valladolid predicted XI: Jimenez, Perez, Gonzalez, Sanchez, Garcia, Michel, Perez, Hervias, Plano, Rubio, Guardiola.

As always, coach Zinedine Zidane’s toughest decision for this match comes with his attackers. Benzema will almost certainly feature in the XI, but who will play alongside him? This game could possibly see Vinicius on the left with Odegaard featuring on the right wing with freedom to operate and create. Other players like Rodrygo or Isco could also feature.
