Real Madrid might need to face Granada this Thursday without Alvaro Odriozola and Marcelo, who didn't train with the squad during Monday's session. Considering that both Ferland Mendy and Dani Carvajal will also miss the game, coach Zinedine Zidane will be forced to find different answers for his flanks if neither Odriozola nor Marcelo can make it in time for the match.

Real Madrid still need to win each one of their last three games in order to put some pressure on Atletico de Madrid, who will conquer the title if they win out.

Castilla left-back Miguel Gutiérrez could likely get a chance to face Granada, given that he's made a positive impact when given the chance to play. If Odriozola can't recover in time, Fede Valverde will likely be deployed on Madrid's right-back spot, where he played against Liverpool.

Granada will be a tough team to beat, but Madrid will have to find the way through if they want to compete for the title until the very end.
