Real Madrid visit Elche hoping to start some kind of winning streak. Los Blancos have struggled with consistency so far this season and dropped points against Osasuna last Wednesday right after their impressive win in El Clasico.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin, Fuidias.

Defenders: Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Vallejo, Nacho, Mendy, Marcelo.

Midfielders: Casemiro, Blanco, Camavinga, Kroos, Modric, Vazquez, Isco.

Attackers: Asensio, Rodrygo, Vinicius, Hazard, Jovic, Mariano.

Modric is back with the team and should be expected to make his return to the starting lineup. The Croatian midfielder got some rest against Osasuna and should have fresh legs to make an impact. On the other hand, Benzema will not be available in this game and Jovic will likely start.

Other than that, it will be interesting to see if coach Ancelotti decides to make some rotations, given that Los Blancos also host Shakhtar next Wednesday and that they need to start managing their minutes in order to be in good form when the decisive games are played next spring.
