Real Madrid host Almeria barely three days after the intense Derby against Atletico de Madrid in the Copa del Rey. Almeria offers Ancelotti a good opportunity to make some rotations, but the Italian coach could very well decide to deploy most of his starters as the team will have a full week to prepare for their next game.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Kepa, Vazquez, Rudiger, Nacho, Mendy, Camavinga, Kroos, Valverde, Bellingham, Vinicius, Rodrygo.

Almeria predicted XI: Maximiano, Pubil, Chumi, Edgar, Akieme, Lopy, Melero, Robertone, Arribas, Embarba, Suarez.

Real Madrid will need to be very careful with Sergio Arribas and Almeria’s counterattacks, but Ancelotti’s men should be able to pull through.
