Real Madrid host Elche a few days ahead of a crucial Champions League match against Atalanta. Eden Hazard and Sergio Ramos have recovered from their injuries and are back with the team, although coach Zinedine Zidane will likely wait until Tuesday to give them minutes.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Vazquez, Nacho, Varane, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Rodrygo, Vinicius, Benzema.

Elche predicted XI: Badia, Barragan, Calvo, Verdu, Mojica, Morente, Marcone, Guti, Fidel, Carillo, Boye.

Real Madrid should be capable of bouncing back from their last two draws against Real Sociedad and Atletico de Madrid. Los Blancos are eight points behind their neighbors in the table, so while they can still technically win La Liga, they should probably focus on gaining confidence and momentum for the Champions League game ahead, given that Atalanta have looked quite strong lately.

Expect Hazard to enter the game lately, something which would allow him to improve his conditioning.
