Real Madrid visit Real Sociedad with a depleted squad. Benzema, Vinicius and Camavinga will not be available and Ancelotti will likely make even more rotations. Reports published in the Spanish press suggest that Hazard could get some minutes.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Vazquez, Militao, Rudiger, Nacho, Tchouameni, Ceballos, Valverde, Rodrygo, Asensio, Hazard.

Real Sociedad predicted XI: Remiro, Gorosabel, Elustondo, Normand, Muñoz, Silva, Marin, Mendez, Kubo, Sortloth, Oyarzabal.

Hazard or Asensio will be required to replace Benzema in the center of the offensive line unless Ancelotti gives Alvaro Rodriguez a rare chance to feature in the starting lineup. Real Sociedad are trying to clinch their presence in the next edition of the Champions League, so they will definitely come out firing on all cylinders against Real Madrid’s second unit.

Los Blancos will try to stay fresh and avoid problems as they have two huge games in just a handful of days.
